Victor Kremer was a music publisher as well as film producer and distributor in the U.S. An immigrant from Germany, Kremer acquired studio space to produce his own films and acquired film rights from Essanay as it shut operations.[1] His company reissued several Charlie Chaplin films.

Kremer immigrated to the U.S. on November 29, 1892 and by 1898 Kremer had formed a music publishing firm. He was Alfred Solman’s cousin and issued Solman’s first song, “Miss Phoebe Johnsing.”[2] Kremer and the Solman family shared a residence from 1898 to 1900, and during or shortly after that time, Solman and his wife became estranged and then divorced. On July 6, 1903 Eugenia Solman married Victor Kremer.[3]

Kremer was production manager for W. H. Clifford short-lived film company. After failing, he distributed the company's Shorty Hamilton western films from his namesake film company.

Texas Guinan made two films with his production company.[4] He also made a film with opera sensation Lina Cavalieri.

He had an office in New York City. He acquired control of four Charlie Chaplin films.[5]

Two directors attempted to bring suit for improper allocations of money after being removed from the company.[6]
