So... I've been on this Sunset Boulevard jag lately. I watched the film about 3 times in the last two weeks. Brilliant film. I love everything about it. While some friends were visiting from England recently, I subjected them to a viewing of the film, then took them out to see the remaining locations. First stop, Paramount Studios. I knew you could go right up to those famous gates. In we went. Up to security. I told them I wanted to see the gates. "You can't. We don't even have tours anymore." I asked, "Since when?" He replied with the phrase that makes me groan every single time I hear it. "Since nine one one." Ohhhhhhhhh... right. I see. The World Trade Center - Banking capitol of the world... and Paramount Studios. It all makes perfect sense. PSH.
I took this picture through the gates. Stupid chicken shits.
