Studio Tours

Favorite thing When I went to Los Angeles, back in 1946, we were invited to go through the lot at 20th Century Fox Studios. We were escorted around privately. We watched the filming of a scene from The Homecoming with Cornell Wilde and Maureen O'Hara. We saw Jimmy Gleason tilted back in a chair against a wall studying a script. We were taken to the commissary for lunch. It was a lot of fun.

Today, the major studios run regular tours. They sell tickets for the experience which lasts about two hours. The cost runs around $15 per person at Paramount to $32 per person at Warner Brothers. What a change!

Favorite thing Pink Moment Jeep Tours will plan anything you want and do it right. They picked us up at our hotel, provided a wonderful guide who took pictures of the group, and furnished an excellant picnic lunch. Ours was a half-day excursion (the latter half was at the outlet mall which I would not recommend).

Favorite thing Go on the Warner Brothers VIP tour - the tour guides are great, all the best TV shows are filmed here (Friends! ER! etc). The visit to the ER set was very surreal and the entire tour seemed eerily familiar. A must for TV-fanatics.

Fondest memory Driving past houses, knowing that there were people I've idolised since childhood within the walls. Buzzing Steven Spielberg's gate and being yelled at by his security man. The waves at Malibu.

Favorite thing This is definately a city that deserves few days of your time. There is so much to do and never enough time. If you have someone that lives there, get them to take you on a car tour of the city and see the sites.

Fondest memory Was the Warner Brothers tour. Even though our guide wasn't the greatest, we had a lot of fun. You get to see the Museum where several costumes from the movies are held. You get a peek at the Friends set & the ER set. And you get to see such famous cars as The 'General Lee' from Dukes of Hazardand and the Batmobile. One stop is at what we called 'Anytown USA' which has been used in filming in Bonnie and Clyde, Seinfeld, Drew Carey, Friends, and many more. We almost didn't get to see any stars though but towards the end, we glimpsed Martin Sheen driving by after some West Wing taping.
