"Ransom!" with Glenn Ford and Donna Reed  (MGM, 1956) has a scene in front of the Fox Westwood Village. Here, director Alex Segal,  squatting down on the left, surveys the action prior to filming.

The photo is one of many rare views from the Arcadia Publishing book "Location Filming in Los Angeles" by Karie Bible, Marc Wanamaker and Michael Medved.  It's available on Amazon.  There's also a preview to browse on Google Books.

Thanks to Jonathan Raines for spotting this one. See our page on the Fox Westwood Village for more about the theatre, since 1931 a major first run house and now operated by Regency Theatres.
