Just after the turn of the 20th century, the motion picture industry moved to the West Coast, and the largest land of make-believe was created in Hollywood, California. From the silent-era beginnings of primitive, open-air stages, to the fabled back lots of the studios’ heyday, Hollywood Studios presents a bygone era of magical moviemaking in rare postcards. Born and raised in Hollywood, the author has a bachelor of arts degree in radio/television/film. Assembled from his private collection, these images from the Chaplin Studios to Metro-Goldwyn Mayer depict an insider’s look back at the dream factories known as the Hollywood studios.
