"Alex in Wonderland"
A look east on Hollywood Blvd. during the filming of Paul Mazursky's "Alex in Wonderland" (MGM, 1970). That's a bit of the Vogue Theatre over there on the left. The New-View Theatre (somewhat obscured by smoke) is over on the right -- just this side of that four story building at Hollywood and Cherokee. Thanks to Bobby Cole for posting the photo on the Vintage Los Angeles Facebook page.
An L.A. Times photo of lovely Hollywood Blvd. during the filming of "Alex in Wonderland." The
film stars Donald Sutherland, Ellen Burstyn and Jeanne Moreau. Here we get a better look at the New-View, over on the right.
Here Jeanne Moreau and Donald Sutherland are in the middle of Hollywood Blvd. as we look west toward the Egyptian Theatre. The photo appears on page 39 in the Arcadia Publishing book "Location Filming in Los Angeles" by Karie Bible, Marc Wanamaker and Harry Medved. There's a preview on Google Books.
It's also reported that the Los Angeles Theatre is seen in the film. See the pages on the Los Angeles Theatres site about the Egyptian Theatre, the Ritz/New View Theatre, the Vogue Theatre, and the Los Angeles Theatre for a history of the buildings and many photos.
