About Hollywood
A "LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY"
 By: Josie Cory, Publisher/Editor TVI Magazine

It was in the 1800's
when farmers and homesteaders settled in what is now known as the Hollywood area. They were attracted by a pleasant climate, the nearby Pacific ocean and the desert stretching to the east.
 Spanish annals refer to an unimportant way station on El Camino Real and the Cahuenga pass, then the principal route between southern and northern California.
 The name Hollywood was given to the community by Mrs. Horace H. William from Topeka, Kansas, deriving the name Hollywood from a friends's summer residence. In 1903 the colony was incorporated as the city of Hollywood and in 1910 became a district of Los Angeles.

HOLLYWOOD FILM STUDIOS
 The pioneers of the motion-picture industry found southern California extremely well suited to their need of maximum sunshine, mild temperatures, varied terrain and a labor market. In 1908 one of the first "story" moving pictures, The Count of Monte Cristo, begun in Chicago by William N. Selig, and was finished in Hollywood by Francis Boggs.
  About this time the Motion Pictures Patents Company, ("Movie Trust"), was formed in New York by producers licensed by Thomas Alva Edison to use his kinetoscope. A group of independent producers and exhibitors, using French cameras for which patent priority was claimed, threatened the trust's monopoly, resulting in a series of suits, injunction and even street fights. The independents eventually moved to southern California.
 The trust companies followed, and studios, independent and trust alike, became centered in Edendale. Resultant overcrowding caused some producers to move a few miles westward into Hollywood. In 1911, David Horsley leased the northwest corner of Gower street and Sunset boulevard for his Nestor Film Company Studio, the first real studio in Hollywood. Before the end of the year fifteen companies had located close by, to be followed by many others. The trust companies dwindled; the independents eventually dominated the industry.
 In 1913, Cecil B. deMille, Jesse Lasky and Samuel Goldwyn combined to produce The Squaw Man in a barn just a block from the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street. The barn was subsequently moved to Paramount Studios then to the Hollywood Bowl area, as a historical monument. D.W. Griffith helped give Hollywood its start in the race for supremacy in motion pictures.
  Early films such as The Birth of a Nation (1915) helped set a standard of showmanship. Early stars included Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson, Rudolph Valentino, Harold Lloyd, Francis X. Bushman, William S. Hart, Lillian Gish and Tom Mix. Great studios arose under leaders such as Adolph Zukor, William Fox, Samuel Goldwyn and Louis B. Mayer. The 1920's saw Hollywood as the center of a movie industry with a worldwide market.
  Real estate boomed, riches were extravagantly displayed and headline scandals periodically occurred. Censorship bureaus in many cities ordered the suppression of pictures or the deletion of suggestive lines and scenes. The producers responded by forming an organization that became known as the Hays Office, a bureau of self-censorship, headed by Will Hays, former postmaster general, under the aegis of The Motion Picture and Distributors of America, Inc.

Part 02 HOLLYWOOD TELEVISION STUDIOS

 Television as a competitor to the movie industry began to be felt during the prosperous years of World War II. The Hollywood counteraction was a rash of new techniques involving new lenses, wider screens and stereophonic sound. Nevertheless, thousands of theaters stayed closed and million of movie patrons preferred the home television screen.
 The RKO Studio was taken over by television producers. In the early 1960's about 80% of the three main television networks' evening programming originated from Hollywood. The financial structure of movie making underwent a radical change. The theater chains of the old studio giants were broken up, then largely replaced by a conglomerate alliance of independent producers, profit-sharing stars, bankers, agents and investment counselors.
  The blocking of foreign currency and capital gains and income tax factors provided incentive for production of an increasing number of films overseas, and the cheap supply of extras and other help encouraged this trend. However, thousands of technically skilled artisans who have made Hollywood and its environs their home have to some extent been absorbed into the television industry, with an equally vast inventory of equipment. The entertainment industry in Hollywood is so firmly anchored that it will hardly be uprooted.

3. Editor's Note / RADIO AND RECORDING STUDIOS
 Radio in Hollywood was a natural outgrowth of its supply of talent and in pre-television days Hollywood rivaled New York as radio center for nation-wide programs. Columbia square, the Mutual Don Lee Broadcasting system studios and the National Broadcasting Company studios stand as monuments to radio. The recording of songs written for movies, of radio and television programms and of other popular music is a thriving industry.
 In 1919 the Hollywood Bowl, a 50 acres natural amphitheater owned by Los Angeles country, became a reality. The pool of artists who moved their talents to the area in the ensuing years made possible the array of talent that attracts record-breaking crowds to the outdoor series of summer concerts known as "Symphonies Under the Stars ". Other main points of interest are the Pilgrimage Play amphitheater, the Aquarius, the Palladium, the Greek Theater, and of course there's every major studio.
