HOLLYWOOD OVER 70 YEARS AGO
Shot in the 1940s, this silent home movie features Hollywood and surrounding areas, including the Hollywoodland sign, Hollywood Boulevard, and Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Filmed by James Telfer, a Warner Bros. cameraman, the footage shows the Hollywood Hotel, located at Hollywood and Highland. The site would later become the home to the Hollywood & Highland Center and the Dolby Theatre, where The Oscars® takes place every year. The Oscars®, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, will air on Sunday, March 2, live on ABC.
