: I will be in LA on business Thu-Sat. Hopefully, Saturday I will be sightseeing. Can anyone suggest any sites/tours? I would like something nostalgic - related to OTR or old movies.
Definitely go on the 'tour of the stars homes' if you haven't been already. It's definitely worth it. They leave from in front of the Chinese (formerly Grauman's) Theater on Hollywood Blvd all day long. They go by Benny's house and MANY others.
Benny has 3 stars on the Walk Of Fame: for Radio at 1501 N. Vine St., for TV at 6370 Hollywood Blvd., for Movies at 6650 Hollywood Blvd. I have a big book with the locations of all the stars if there are any particular ones you want to see. Also go to LARRY EDMUND'S bookstore located at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Cherokee Ave. It's a must see Film/TV/Theatrical (and Radio) bookstore that has things you can't find anywhere else in the world. The Walk Of Fame and bookstore are within walking distance.
