"Won Ton Ton: The Dog Who Saved Hollywood"

We oogle the Chinese Theatre forecourt at the beginning of "Won Ton Ton: The Dog Who Saved Hollywood" (Paramount, 1976). Later in the film, we return to the theatre for a premiere of one of the canine star's films.  The Michael Winner film stars Dennis Morgan and Madeline Kahn. She plays Estie, the girl who came to town to become a star only to see the dog who followed her become the success.

Head to our pages about Grauman's Chinese for a history of the building along with over 200 photos.

Heading to another premiere at the Mayan Theatre, 1038 S. Hill St.

Watching the film inside the Mayan. 

Check out our Mayan Theatre pages for data on this 1927 vintage legit venue. At the time of the shot we see here it was a porno house. It's now alive as the Club Mayan, a music venue.
