MGM Studios and its famous 10-column entrance in 1939

MGM Studios and its famous 10-column entrance in 1939If I ever got my hands on a time machine, this is exactly where I’d be asking it to take me: to the MGM Studios and its famous 10-column entrance. This is even the year I’d pick: 1939, when they were filming “The Wizard of Oz”, “The Women”, “Ninotchka”, “Another Thin Man”, “Goodbye, Mr. Chips” and a couple of Andy Hardy movies. So is it any wonder this guy is pointing to MGM. He was probably saying “I want to in there!”

    Well, 1939 was surely a good year for MGM classics, but I’d want to move my trip back at least a few years to when Harlow was still there.

    Martin, here’s another pic you put up that I like even better as it shows the main entrance. My comment in that post also includes links to a couple more pics.
