Edward Nassour was an American film producer, head of a motion picture studio, and a special effects animator. He was the brother and business partner of William Nassour. Before becoming a producer, Edward Nassour worked as a Los Angeles businessman working in the aircraft manufacturing industry and had an interest in stop motion animation. In the early 1940s he partnered with Walter Lantz to make a stop motion Technicolor dinosaur film for Columbia Pictures entitled Lost Atlantis. Lantz and Nassour produced a test reel, but the project was too expensive and was never completed. The two men decided to form a company to make a series of stop motion films but the plan never was completed. In 1946, the Nassour brothers purchased a four-acre lot on Sunset Boulevard and built a studio complex featuring four stages, a projection room, dressing rooms, and offices. A variety of independent films and television shows were produced at the complex. After selling his studio complex, Nassour supervised the dinosaur sequences in The Lost Continent. Later the Nassours made the television series Sheena, Queen of the Jungle in Mexico.
