Hollywood has definitely changed since the 1940s, but one of the things that has stayed for the most part is the glitz and glamor of the film industry.

In this video, we get to cruise through major Hollywood streets and pass by Warner Bros. Theatre, Paramount Pictures, and the old Metro-Goldwyn Mayer Studio. Plus, check out the Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave. intersection at 1:13 for a glaringly different look at how traffic lights worked back then.
