The view up Olive toward the Auditorium Building in Billy Wilder's "Double Indemnity" (Paramount, 1944) with Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck. It's a screenshot by Ed Savage, part of a set posted on Photos of Los Angeles.
Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) careens through the 6th & Olive intersection in "Double Indemnity." Behind we get a view of the Auditorium Building. Again, thanks to Ed Savage for the screenshot.
Check out our page on the Philharmonic Auditorium for a history and many photos of the building, now gone.
