Hooray For Hollywood

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour in Los Angeles is great way to get an up close at movie making from one of Hollywood’s legendary studios. It was Warner Bros. that released the first talkie, “The Jazz Singer” back in 1927. Since then, “Casablanca”, “The Music Man”, “Friends” and “ER” have all worn the Warner Bros. label.

Casablanca was filmed almost entirely on the backlots of Hollywood. The famous flashback scene of Bogie and Bergman looking out the window above Cafe Pierre lives on as the last standing set from the film.

Batman, my favorite super-hero has a strong presences on the lot. The facade for Police Headquarters in the 1960’s Adam West of Batman stands. There was only one shot of the facade taken and re-used for multiple episodes as the caped crusaders ran to Commisioner Gordon’s office.

The Batman garage features vehicles that span the history of the Batman franchise. Keep an eye out for Jared Leto’s Joker mobile, Christian Bale’s Tumbler, Batmobile’s from Val Kilmer and Michael Keaton’s portrayal of the Dark Knight.

Jason Momoa’s “Aquaman” is also featured on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. You can sit on the Throne of Atlantis and hold Aquaman’s trident.

You can also see original costumes worn by Gal Gadot and Chris Pine in “Wonder Woman”
