Chesterfield Motion Pictures Corporation, mai cunoscută ca Chesterfield Pictures, a fost un studio de film american, o companie care a funcționat în anii 1920 și anii 1930. A fost creată cu intenția de a crea filme ieftine, de categoria B. Compania a fost condusă de George R. Batcheller și a lucrat în tandem cu studioul înfrățit, Invincible, care a fost condus de Maury Cohen.[1] Această compania de producție nu a avut în posesie propriul studio și spațiu, astfel încât a închiriat de la diverse alte studiouri, în primul rând de la Universal Pictures și RKO.[2]

A fost unul dintre studiourile mici (Poverty Row) deținute de Herbert Yates în 1935 și a fost unit cu alte studiouri pentru a forma noua companie Republic Pictures în încercarea sa de a crea un producător dominant, cu buget redus, cu suficientă putere pentru a concura (și prelua) studiourile majore.[3] Republic a reușit mai mult sau mai puțin în atingerea acestui obiectiv în următorii 20 de ani.
