"Leave It To Beaver"
Silent film detective John Bengtson has turned his sights to "Leave it To Beaver" where he found this 6th season shot of Ward (Hugh Beaumont) and Wally (Tony Dow) driving in Mayfield where it looks just like 3rd St. in Santa Monica. The episode aired in January, 1963. See John's entertaining post "Leave it to Santa Monica." Thanks, John!
In the background on the right is the Elmiro, 1441 3rd St. in Santa Monica. The facade remains but it's a newer building behind that now houses the AMC Broadway 4 Theatres. See our page on the Elmiro Theatre for more views.
