The Hollywood Heritage Museum is located in the old Lasky-De Mille barn.
This building was originally located near Vine and Selma Streets but moved to this location years ago. Note: the building is not sinking. It’s just the angle I took the picture at.
C. B. DeMille used this location (Selma & Vine) and the land surrounding it to film The Squaw Man. The Squaw Man was the first feature length motion picture filmed in Hollywood. I’ve never seen it but I’m going to look for it.
This is C. B.’s office. There’s a better picture at the end of this post.
I like this sign on his desk.
They had these old nickelodeon machines. The yellow one worked.
One of the movies being shown.
And here’s the other movie.
They had lots of great posters too.
There was a whole corner devoted to Rudolph Valentino and a short film about him played nearby in a loop.
The museum had an array of souvenir programs from movie premiers.
There was a display on the first tourist attraction in Hollywood.
This is what DeLongpre’s house looked like.
There was an assortment of old-timey movie cameras. This one is a 1916 Powers Cameragraph Projector.
A place to take a selfie.
A case devoted to bygone Hollywood restaurants.
Some Mary Pickford artifacts.
Some old film props were on display. This is from The Cheat.
This image of John Barrymore was painted for a scene in All About Eve. It’s in the background during the banquet that deals with the presentation of the Sara Siddons award.
A costume used in The Ten Commandments. I can’t see myself wearing it because I’m too modest but I can envision Chris Hemsworth (THOR) wearing it.
I like this simple poster. It must be the color that I’m drawn to.
They have artifacts from demolished structures. This one is from the Hollywood Hotel.
The Hotel Hollywood was torn down in August of 1956.
You can see C.B.’s office in this brochure. They had better lighting and a better angle.
It’s right across the street from the Hollywood Bowl.
