We get a peek at the marquee of the Gordon Theatre, 614 N. La Brea Ave., in Ray Dennis Steckler's "Body Fever" (1969). The film has also been known as "Supercool," "Deadlocked" and "The Last Original B Movie." It features Carolyn Brandt, Bernard Fein and Gary Kent in a noirish tale about a low-rent private detective trying to catch a robber who dresses like Catwoman.
A look south under the Gordon's marquee. Thanks to Eitan Alexander for spotting the theatre in the film and sending along the screenshots. The Gordon was later known as the Showcase after a Cineplex Odeon remodel. See the Los Angeles Theatres page on the Showcase Theatre for photos and history.
