Main Phone 515 BY PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD—The most widely sprawled city in the world. Los Angeles, never has been able to strangle Hollywood or to destroy its individuality. The two are wed by corporate bonds,'but their relationship is like that of a movie star married to a non-celebrity and determined to keep her maiden 1 name. j Although it never has enjoyed ; any official separate existence, Hollywood now has been given specific geographical boundaries. 'Such recognition comes a little late because Hollywood already has extended itself far beyond mere physical limits. If you write a letter to, say, Robert Taylor, Hollywood, Calif., it will be delivered promptly at- Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in Culver City. Write to Bettc Davis, Hollywood, Calif., and the postal people will flip your letter to Warner Brothers in Burbank. In the same scattered way. 20th ( I Century-Fox is in Westwood Vil- ' lage, Republic is in the town of North • Hollywood\and Universal is in Universal City. v STILL SHERWOOD A few years ago Warners found a wooded area 50me 35 miles out of Los Angeles and there filmed much of ''Errol Flynn's "Robin Hood." On the company's daily call-sheet, the place was identified as Sherwood Forrest. And Sherwood Forest it remains today, officially. Incidentally, Flynn and' a movie troupe are back there : now, only this time .Sherwood. For-i est is doubling for the Black Forest of Germany for scenes in "Desperate Journey." Along the eastern edge of Hollywood proper is a district called Mixville. where the late Tom Mix made some of his earliest thrillers and where he invested a good deal of the proceeds in real estate. Overlooking 'Mixville is a still elegant residential region on the western face of a midget mountain "which Antonio Moreno once toppe'd with a rambling mansion. The district is still called Moreno Highlands, and a Moreno Street, a Moreno Place and a Moreno Drive crisscross confusingly. SAM TS HONORED Be Mille Drive borders one of the swankier estate' sections of a nearby part of hilly Hollywood. There's a Goldwyn Avenue in Culver City commemorating Sam Goldwyn's tempestuous association with the studio which still uses his name along with Metro and Mayer. Virtually all the picture pioneers had streets or parks named for them—such as Pick ford Way and Fairbanks Place. A street in San Fernando Valley has been christened Priscilla Lane. South of the Warner Studio in Burbank rises a respectable eminence once known as Cahuenga Peak. Soon after the studio was established, press agents made arrangements to rechristen it Warner Mountain. A preliminary sur vey disclosed that the top was covered with undramatic sagebrush, so the prop department made a large pupier-mache rocs. ; which was dragcd up by tractor j along with newsreel equipment and a bottle of real champagne. Company officials and a few pretty actres-ses trudged up under their own power. At the climax of the ceremony a studio cutie swung the bottle—and bashed a big hole in the phony 'boulder.
