Some of you know Steve D’Errico, the Paramount security guard who has worked on both Voyager and Enterprise. I met Steve through my blog and we have become good friends. So when I was in L.A. last week, Steve offered to give me a tour of Paramount Studios! Of course I accepted, and the following photos will give you a glimpse of what it is like at Paramount.
This is the Bronson Gate, which used to be the main entrance till Paramount bought adjacent land south of this and so this is now inside the property. If you’ve seen “Sunset Blvd.” you know this landmark and the ornate, wrought iron entry gate. Built in 1926, this renowned arched gateway is located at the north end of Bronson Avenue (and is hence called “The Bronson Gate“). Ironically, Charles Bronson (whose name was originally Charles Buchinski) took his new name from this gate.
