Architectural Detail 

 

One more Art Deco building from the thirties – Sunset and Western at the east end of Hollywood….

 

The two stone men at the top, and a row of other stone folks, with the one on the right quite unhappy…

 

Above the door, one wonders what this fellow is thinking.  Perhaps he’s worried about the upward facing floodlight just above his head.

Detail of one of the balconies….  They seem to be making a movie here.  The director with the megaphone could be Oliver Stone.   His new film is a bit controversial, with the two guys liking each other a tad too much.  See this

 

In Oliver Stone's three-hour drama, "Alexander," Colin Farrell, as the fourth-century Macedonian conqueror Alexander the Great, has a number of tender love scenes with his best friend, Hephaistion, played by a long-haired Jared Leto. In the film, which cost about $155 million to produce, Alexander is also married to Roxane, played by Rosario Dawson, but the marriage takes a back seat to his passion for his boyhood friend.

 

Yep, that’s the movie being filmed here.
