Pan Pacific Auditorium as the Algonquin Dog Park in MGM’s “Johnny Eager” (1941)

Pan Pacific Auditorium as the Algonquin Dog Park in MGM’s "Johnny Eager" (1941)Here’s an instance where LA reality meets Hollywood fantasy. Last night I was watching MGM’s “Johnny Eager” (1941) starring Robert Taylor and Lana Turner (who has never looked more gorgeous.) Taylor plays a gangster who opens a dog-racing park. Cut to an establishing shot of his Algonquin Dog Park…and it’s the Pan Pacific Auditorium on Beverly Blvd next to what back then would have been Gilmore Field baseball park. You can see what it normally looked like here: http://wp.me/p5XK3w-2b2
