Just a quick post here about this aerial view taken in 1922 as the prominent Security Bank Building, at the NE corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Cahuenga, nears completion. I could point out so many filming spots in this photo, but will limit it to just two. Harold Lloyd’s runaway trolley stunt in Girl Shy (1924) (top oval), and Buster Keaton’s one-handed passing car grab in Cops (1922) (bottom oval). [Other Cops posts]
