  Earl Carroll Neon  


I was watching the 1975 version of “Farewell, My Lovely” for the first time in a long while and began wondering how they got the neon sign from the Earl Carroll Theatre for the opening titles. The top photo is a frame grab from the film and the bottom photo is a frame grab from a 1940s training film for firefighters. The actual sign was animated so that the letters in THEATRE in the upper right spelled out “Eat at” Earl Carroll Theatre.
