Columbia Pictures First Home in Hollywood
Sony Pictures Entertainment inherited a rich legacy when it acquired Columbia Pictures Entertainment. Stars like Rita Hayworth, Cary Grant, James Stewart, Jean Arthur and Clark Gable once walked the streets of Columbia Pictures’ studio lot at Sunset and Gower, where some of its most successful films such as GILDA, HIS GIRL FRIDAY, MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON and IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT were made. Take a stroll down these studio streets to experience a "Hollywood" studio from the past.
