“Forgotten Hollywood”- A Fantasy Map to the Stars!

Manny P. here…

   With Summer in full swing, I found this on Facebook via the Screen Actors Guild Awards. It’s so frivolous, I thought I’d share this with you. According to a website selling these unique Hollywood-style maps:

A street map made up of over 900 film titles, including cinema classics such as Lost Highway, On the Waterfront, Jurassic Park, Reservoir Dogs, Carlito’s Way, Nightmare on Elm Street, Valley of the Dolls, and Chinatown.

The Map, which is loosely based on the style of a vintage Los Angeles street map, has its own Hollywood Boulevard, and includes districts dedicated to Hitchcock and cult British horror movies. Like most cities, it also has its own Red Light area. There’s an A-Z key at the base of the Map listing all the films featured, with their release dates and names of the directors.

   Here’s a link to the website for you to check out this creative labour of love:




   The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented a screening of Lawrence of Arabia this week. Restoration of this epic included updated voiceovers by Arthur Kennedy prior to his death in 1990. A really nice touch… Omar Sharif recorded a video introduction of the film.                                                      OMAR SHARIF—–>


Until next time>                               “never forget”
