If you are visiting Los Angeles (one of the very best cities in the world) and you have the time, this is worth the time for a visit. All those steps and all that movie history.
This episode is from the 1932 film The Music Box, with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, and described wonderfully at the web site silentlocations.com.
And occasional celebrations of the steps occur as a day long event.
