An interesting picture of the Warners Theatre back in '28 hardly on the grand scale as one might expect, I'd be interested to know what the interior looked like.

The Warner Bros. Hollywood, 6433 Hollywood Blvd. --
A 1928 preview of the theatre's entrance, almost ready to open. Note the guys working on that left storefront. It's a photo in the Los Angeles Public Library collection: http://jpg2.lapl.org/theater1/00014814.jpg

Here is a picture of a theater that no longer exists. It was located in Yucaipa, the town next door to the town I live in. The picture was taken in 1947. It isn't the best copy; I had to project it from one source onto the computer and then snap a pic with my cell phone. Aw, shucks. Here it is.

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films.
