Movieland Mystery Photo [Updated]

  Los Angeles Time file photo  

[Update: This is what my friends in Orange County used to call “the condo made of stone-a” (look it up, young people) next to the Santa Ana Freeway in City of Commerce. At the time this picture was taken, the old Uniroyal tire plant had been abandoned and was known as this bizarre building next to the freeway, but it has been redeveloped and today people know it as the Citadel mall.]

If you don’t live in Southern California, you may not appreciate the humor of this photograph.

[Update: Unfortunately, there’s no information as to what movie this might be. All we know is the date the photo was taken: March 26, 1979. I can’t even find the published photo in the online clips, so there’s a chance it was subbed out in a later edition.]


Here’s our mystery camera…


… our mystery chariots with mystery palm trees…


… and mystery telephone poles.
