  2. Perhaps Debbie should have had Eddie neutered before letting him out of the house.

  3. Fascinating. Hollywood must have been magical back then. Thanks for posting it here.

  4. haha... that's awesome. I do I.T. for the LA Phil, and the Hollywood Bowl is our summer venue. I'll have to send a link of this video to our archivist. :)

  5. @ Matt26: I don't think Hollywood was ever magical. Except that it made lots of money disappear.

  6. so incredibly sexist – not to mention self evident. "This is a girl." "Be sure there's something to step out on" (in reference to disembarking the copter).

  7. Interesting visuals but the narrator is truly obnoxious.

  8. Are those -- PARKING LOTS -- on either side of the Chinese Theater?!

  9. I think the narrator may have came over that Lee Marvin kissing scene.

  10. The past always appears so idyllic. Today, when viewed in the future, might not be so fortunate. It will be viewed as a time of unjust violence. We're blind to it now.

  11. The narrator is Bob Crane in his radio days, before he did the 60s TV show Hogan's Heroes. If you've seen the movie Autofocus, you'll know he was fairly kinky.
