A view from inside MGM’s original gate on Washington Blvd, Culver City, 1938

A view from inside MGM's original gate on Washington Blvd, Culver CityHere’s something that few of us mere mortals had the chance to see: the view from inside MGM’s original gate looking out across Washington Boulevard in Culver City. I read somewhere that the bridge overhead connected Mayer’s and Thalberg’s offices to the screening room. That would have been before the Thalberg Building was constructed in 1938, the same year this photo was taken. I can’t help but wonder what movies were being filmed that day.

    Time travel machine please! And you can drop me right off here inside the MGM gate.

    Wonder what “Ryan’s” was across the street?

    Thanks, Martin.
