'-30-' revisited

November 8, 2007 |  9:46 am

Speaking of "-30-," (see previous post) here's a still of Jack Webb and William Conrad that I dug out of the archives.



I'm especially fond of this picture. For many years, there was a huge enlargement of it by the Metro news desk.



For comparison, here's an undated photo of the Herald Examiner staff I borrowed from somebody's desk at The Times.  Newspaper lore held that "-30-" was filmed in the Examiner Building. Like many wonderful myths, it wasn't true. Research revealed that Webb built a duplicate of the newsroom on a sound stage.
