World Wide Pictures (WWP) is a film distributor and production company established as a subsidiary of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) in 1951. It is involved in the production and distribution of evangelistic films, the production of Graham crusade films, and publicity for Graham crusades. WWP got its start after Graham met Dick Ross, who had produced a documentary film of Grahams 1950 crusade in Portland, Oregon. That films success led the BGEA to buy Rosss production company, and hire him as the president of a new BGEA subsidiary incorporated as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Film Ministry (which was to be WWPs official name until 1980). WWPs first feature film was Mr. Texas, produced during Grahams 1951 Fort Worth, Texas Crusade. It was also during the 1950s that WWP established production facilities in Burbank, California.
