Many thanks, Ross, for this wonderful excerpt from the awesome (30 minute) Fox video. I had the pleasure of meeting Les Thomsen, the cinematographer who shot this historic film. My wife, a native of San Francisco, often cut school just to absorb the stage and its cavernous 5,000 seat auditorium. Many years later, we were given a gold leafed Cherub which was rescued from the ruins. This was originally located over the center front main lobby door and is clearly shown in Preston Kaufman’s wonderful book “The Fabulous, Foolish Fox”. Nowadays, to see and hear live, that magnificent Wurlitzer organ, one needs to visit Disney’s glorious El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. It’s played before each show. Finally, I was thrilled to once be an usher at the “ElCap”… ah, what memories!
