I was watching an episode last month and there was the yellow raincoated man on the tricycle at the base of Angel's Flight as it was descending and when it reached bottom he tipped over. I was surprised to see that.

Unless I mis-remembered, or there was another segment like this on a different episode, which is entirely possible, Decades Channel,
now airing the series this year, had this jogger coming down the Angels Flight tracks in front of Olivet...or Sinai?



Filmed in 1968.

If you want to see the several second segment, it starts at 14:58 on this youtube post.

At first I thought that was a mile marker in the foreground. On closer inspection, I think it's just a plain ol' ordinary post.

First, the date is probably too early. There were really no buildings to speak of in the area that is now Manhattan Beach in the 1890s. Steve estimates the correct date to be around 1910. I thought the view was looking south along what is now Valley Drive. Valley Drive runs west of a greenbelt that contained the old Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railroad tracks until they were removed in the 1980s. That strip is now known as Veterans Parkway or The Greenbelt seen here:
Google Earth

I thought the location was looking south towards what is now Manhattan Beach Blvd. but Steve believes it is further south, looking towards the southern border with Hermosa Beach. The hillside on the left seems to support that. Also, the sign seen in the distance of the original photo, next to the two story building, may be the railroad sign at the Manhattan/Hermosa border.
Here is that approximate view today:
GSV

This is part of the reply I got from Steve:
"Hi Ian,
Here are a few more of my thoughts on the old photo. I want to clarify why there were houses along Longfellow Ave. in 1910. Longfellow was one of the streets laid out by Moses Sherman and Eli Clark in 1903 as part of their unsuccessful effort to establish a literary colony in the northern part of Hermosa Beach in 1903 to the east of Shakespeare Beach. Sherman and Clark had put in a trolley stop at Shakespeare Beach on their Los Angeles and Pacific (LAP) electrified railway line which which ran near the beach between Playa del Rey and Redondo Beach (begun in 1902 and completed in 1903).
Another thing about the old photo; I believe that East Railroad Dr. traverses the bridge on the right side of the RR tracks, to the north of the two story building."

Longfellow Ave can't be seen in the GSV but it intersects Valley Drive near the middle of the view.

I don't know what e_r's photo shows, but I don't think it shows either Manhattan or Hermosa Beach. There isn't enough sand,
and there are too many trees. Also, that steep hill in background looks out of place.

This photo looks north from just below 1st Street in south Manhattan Beach, c. 1927:



Manhattan Beach Historical Society


Here we look north from north Redondo Beach, up into Hermosa Beach, with Manhattan Beach further in the distance, c. 1927:

Being on Sunset Blvd. at that location, Larry Finley's "Room with a View" wouldn't have to be multiple stories. It's a pretty expansive view there even at street level.

I'd never heard of Finley's place, or the Jordanell Cocktail Lounge, before, either.
Thanks for the additional information Martin. You're right about the view....any windows facing south would be a spectacular view (even on a lower floor)

I've been searching off and on for a couple days & I still haven't found a photograph of 'My Own Place/M.O.P.' or the 'Jordanell Cocktail Lounge'.





But I have found a few close-ups of Finley's Restaurant when it was located in the Mocambo.

1949

Mickey Cohen, 35, shot outside the nightclub... still lying on the sidewalk.

Mickey Cohen's bodyguard Neddie Herbert is loaded into an ambulance. Cohen’s entourage was ambushed outside the nightclub on the Strip by two men with shotguns lying in wait across the street.
Herbert later died from his wounds.

I think we're too far south here, t2. PE's Redondo lines joined at Catalina Ave. & Pearl St. and then ran southward to Cliffton-by-the-Sea (later abbreviated as "Cliffton" or "Clifton") at the north end of what's now the Hollywood Riviera neighborhood of Torrance. Trackage ended at the city line.

I have a question about the ATSF photo as well. If that's Longfellow Ave. at the center of the photo, then the right-of-way should begin curving to the left a block further on at 30th St. But I can't see anything that indicates it's doing so. The gap in the trees (where the track would be) would seem to indicate that it remained straight. I also agree that the hill at the left of the frame looks to be in the wrong place.

Cabaret Concert Theatre

There is a youtube interview with famous "female illusionist" Charles Pierce where he tells host Skip E. Lowe about working in the early 1950's, fresh out of the Pasadena Playhouse, at a nightclub/theatre on Sunset Blvd. in Silverlake called "Cabaret Concert." Cabaret Concert was started in 1950 by a dancer named Miriam Schiller as a showcase for aspiring performers. It ran until 1961, described as "a popular nightspot among television and film producers, talent scouts, agents and celebrities," and as having "a shadowy atmosphere with candlelit tables, poetry readings, jazz and folk singers, and dancers in black leotards." Many famous names and familiar faces of the 1950's through the 1970's, mostly television personalities, started out at Cabaret Concert, some of them working for little money and doubling as wait staff and ticket takers.

Regular performers included Ann B. Davis ("Schultzie" on the Bob Cummings Show" and later housekeeper Alice in "The Brady Bunch"), Jo Ann Worley ("Laugh In"), vivacious television actress Ruta Lee, Ken Berry ("F Troop," "Mayberry R.F.D.," and "Mama's Family"), Berry's wife Jackie Joseph (the original "Little Shop of Horrors," and "The Doris Day Show"), Comedic actor and game show host Bert Convy, jazz singers Ruth Olay and Ketty Lester, Ann Morgan Guilbert (Rob and Laura's neighbor Millie Helper on "The Dick Van Dyke Show,") and voluptuous blonde bombshell/schemer Joyce Jameson. In real life, Joyce was the long-time girlfriend of "The Man From Uncle's" Robert Vaughn. She suffered from depression and and committed suicide with pills at age 54 in 1987.

The famous musical comedy revue "The Billy Barnes Review" played for two years starting in 1956 at Cabaret Concert, then moved to the larger Las Palmas Theatre and eventually to Broadway.

The Cabaret Concert building, whose facade is a long stucco wall with a Mission-Style parapet over the street entrance, is located at 4212 Sunset Blvd. near Myra. Today it is known as "El Cid," a flamenco restaurant - theatre, doubling as a venue for eclectic musical acts. The building has an unusual layout. Photos show stairs going down from near the entrance to a lower courtyard and bar; beyond that is a cavernous room with a stage at the far end. The step-down, split-level layout owes to it being built on a hillside on the north side of Sunset. Below the building is a valley with mostly older houses (I gather this from google photographs).

The land where El Cid/Cabaret Concert is located was originally a "cornfield" used by D.W. Griffith to film scenes for his epic "Birth of a Nation," (originally entitled "The Clansman") around 1914. Griffith's studio, the Reliance-Majestic Studio - sometimes known as The Griffith Studio and Majestic Studio, later the Fine-Arts Studio - was nearby at 4516 Sunset, now a Von's parking lot. The story goes that Griffith built or was involved in the building of the El Cid structure in 1915, and he screened his film there for the outrageously high admission price of $2.00 - about $48.00 today.

In the 1920's the building's facade was startlingly remodeled into the bizarre "Jail Cafe," prominently featured here at NLA; about 1932 it became The Gateway Theatre, where for several years an old-fashioned melodrama called "The Blackguard Returns" played.

A Charles Pierce postscript:
Pierce was an aspiring stage actor when he occasionally performed at Cabaret Concert around 1952/53. His biographer writes that Pierce's offerings, such as a performance of a Noel Coward sketch, were tepidly received. One night a friend ran into an excited Pierce at a gay bar on Melrose near Vine called "The Golden Carp," (the writer surmised it may have originally been a Chinese restaurant and the name was retained). Pierce had just come from seeing a noted impressionist named Arthur Blake at The Bar of Music (recently featured here at NLA) on Beverly Blvd. in Hollywood. Blake was a big name at the time, a friend of Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson, and Talullah Bankhead, and a regular at The Trocadero and nightclubs in New York. He wasn't then a drag performer per se, but used a few props such as hats and scarves to impersonate both female and male celebrities, although he excelled at "haughty divas." Bette Davis said that Arthur Blake was the only impressionist to "get her right."

For Charles Pierce, seeing Arthur Blake that night was an epiphany; he began writing campy material and soon introduced his new drag persona at an Altadena spot called "Club La Vie."

An accquaintance and Pasadena Playhouse classmate of Pierce's around this time was young playwright/novelist James Leo Herlihy, who rented an inexpensive room at an old house in Hollywood called "Orchard Gables" - recently saved from demolition and now a center for non-profit organizations. Herlihy went on to success writing plays and novels that were made into movies: "Blue Denim," "All Fall Down," and "Midnight Cowboy." My friend Richard Lamparski remembers meeting Herlihy at Orchard Gables and describes him as "one of the unhappiest people I've ever met." Herlihy lived alternately in Key West and Silverlake, and killed himself with pills at age 66 in 1993.

The last I saw of Edd in a professional capacity was his Dick Clark-like role as a DJ in 'Hairspray'. John Travolta was in drag.
Byrnes and Roger Smith are about the same age, although one got the idea from the 77SS series that Edd was far his junior. I often wonder if either stops by the other's house on occasion just to visit? Do they hang out and watch reruns of 77SS? That would be just too cool.

FWIW, Roger "Beau" Moore appeared in at least one 77SS episode and there are likely several others still around who made guest appearances on the show.

I'm guessing that's Connie Stevens in the car with Edd.
Roger Smith was still somewhat dapper-looking as he got older, although now a bit on the pudgy side. But at his age, he's probably happy he still has hair.

Both Maverick and 77 Sunset Strip were produced by Howie Horwitz at CBS. The shows would oftentimes swap scripts and re-adapt to the appropriate time period. Warner Bros. was a master at producing tv shows in an assembly-line fashion.

I once saw a You Tube clip of an interview with Horwitz discussing his days at CBS. I wanted to post it here but couldn't find it again.

In 1959, Connie Stevens had a hit record called, I swear this is true, "Kookie, Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb." 77SS was a cultural phenomenon for its time.

Thanks for that post, JeffDiego, I've never heard of that place before, though I've heard of almost everyone you posted about that was connected to it!

I know Billy Barnes from Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. He composed all the original song numbers used on the show, many of them quite fantastic.
"Blondes", sung by Carol Channing and Goldie Hawn is one of my favorites.
He also appeared on the show occasionally, playing the piano.

I believe I've seen all of Brandon De Wilde's movies except Blue Denim. I've never come across it on TV, but I see that it's available on DVD.



They sure have gotten themselves into a contorted position!

I guess it was also called Blue Jeans?




Brandon's magazine?
