The intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Cahuenga Boulevard was a popular film setting for silent-era comedies. At the far end of this post is a link to download an animated 15 MB PowerPoint presentation showing thirteen (but not all) Chaplin, Keaton, and Lloyd filming locations near this historic intersection. If you prefer, here are some static images from the slide show. You can read more about the Toberman Building below appearing in Tillie’s Punctured Romance (1914) at this link HERE.
You will need a PowerPoint viewer to watch the show, and can download a PowerPoint viewer at this site.
