Larry Harnisch reflects on Los Angeles history

City Hall

Speaking of City Hall, here's a frame grab from "Chinatown," with the fabulous cinematography of John Alonzo. I was quite fortunate to hear him discuss the making of "Chinatown" at a presentation many years ago. If you live in Los Angeles and have never seen "Chinatown," go out immediately and rent it. Today.

Hollis Mulwray (Darrell Zwerling) announces that he will not approve the Alto Vallejo Dam and Reservoir, which would be at risk of failing like the Van der Lip Dam (based on the St. Francis Dam disaster).

"It won't hold. I won't build it. It's that simple. I'm not going to make the same mistake twice."
