’39 De Soto at Carthay Circle movie premiere…maybe…um, no

“I don’t think they actually shot this at Carthay Circle – that tented walkway was much longer and I doubt that neon sign was green and pink, but for the uninitiated, it certainly looks like the real thing.”

Martin Turnbull, expert on the golden age of Hollywood, posted this on his facebook page (link is below). He has written some excellent historical fiction novels about this time and has a lot of interesting posts on his page.
