Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation West Coast Studios, circa 1930s(?)

Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation West Coast StudiosThis gorgeous building was (and is) the main admin building for Paramount Pictures, back then more formally known as the Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation. Although some of (but not all of) its frippery has been stripped away, it’s still there. I asked a friend who works in the jewelry department what it is now, and she said it’s the Administration building (re-named the Sumner Redstone Building 2 years ago) “where all the big cheeses reside.” Evidently, if you’re a beautiful building in LA, your chances of survival improve if you’re on a studio lot.

This is how it looks in 2015:
