      Warner Brothers, Western Street

      Scenes from
      The Shootist
      filmed here

      In late May 2003, the Laramie Street western sets were bulldozed away,
      being replaced by a new suburban street.
      The following pictures are from the personal collection of Stephen Lodge.

      Looking north or northeast.
      This is what was at one time called Laramie Street;
      that was when Warner's had another huge Western Street set.
      Together that made for blocks and blocks of streets.
      This was taken around 1980, when, I think, they were doing the new Maverick series
      with James Garner.
      An article in Life magazine in the late '50's showed the WB
      back lot Western streets from the air. and there were
      at least six companies shooting on one block,
      around the corner, on the next block, etc.

      Looking east or southeast. Note the side street.
      This side street could be used as an entirely different town,
      when shot from different angles.

      Taken from the side street looking west or southwest toward the main street.
      This angle seen many times in old Mavericks, Sugarfoots, Cheyennes, etc,
      in the '50's. It looked like a back lot even then.

      Looking south or southwest. Note the familiar mountain in the background.
      possibly Mt. Lee!, the other side is the Hollywood sign.
      It can also be seen in many pictures shot on the Universal back lot
      which parallels Warner Bros.

    • Re: Duke's Movie Studios/Backlot- Warner Bros

      Went to Warner Brothers Studios Museum on 12/16/11 and saw two of The Duke's outfits up close there: His Khaki uniform from "Operation Pacific" and his deep blue long coat from "The Sea Chase". He was a big, big man. As expected, his clothing bore witness that he was just as tall and broad-shouldered and strong as he appears to be in his films. Wow.
