When I was a kid I was enamoured by the likes of glamorous starlets of the 40’s such as Hedy Lammar, Ava Gardner and Lana Turner.
Violet Biggs was a character in Frank Capra’s popular 1946 film, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’.
Violet’s character was lost and wanting to start over. I really identified with this character at the time I was naming my company, so I chose the name Violet Biggs and it stuck!
Some believe Gloria Graeme’s character was actually named Violet Bicks ( it is credited in the film as such), though if you research Violet Biggs, you will find a reference to her character in the film.
Either way, the name had grown on me, so Violet Biggs Productions was born in 1999.
