Frank Capra's "Lost Horizon" plays the Four Star Theater, 5112 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, 1937One of my favorite pictures by one of my directors starring one of my favorite actors (and Garden of Allah resident) plays the Four Star Theatre at 5112 Wilshire Blvd in 1937. Man oh man, what I wouldn’t give to have been able to see it in there its original run. And before I went in, I’d stop next door at the “Wilshire Nut Shop” where I’m sure they roasted their almond juuuuuust right. (That theater lasted from the early 1930s to 1999 when it became a church, and then was demolished in 2014. In LA years, that’s like four centuries, so it had a pretty good run.)

  1. Re “Lost Horizon”:that is one of my all-time favorite films. Watched it (what’s left of it) a week or so ago and found it just as marvelous as I had the first time. Ronald Colman was simply amazing. as always. I worked with him when he did Four Star Playhouse (on tv). A genuine pleasure. I believe parts of Lost Horizon were filmed in Ojai, CA.
