“`On Tuesday, my family celebrated a great afternoon at Warner Brothers as we enjoyed a sweltering day on the fascinating tour. What a great way to recognize my mom’s eighty-second birthday.

“`One of the storied movie lots is Warner Brothers. Along with Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Twentieth Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, and Universal Studios, the film studio remains a busy and active repository for cinematic and television productions.

    

“`Jack Warner and his brothers created gritty productions. The studio was well known for Depression-era gangster dramas that made stars of James Cagney,  Edward G. Robinson, Humphrey Bogart, and Bette Davis; and swashbuckle adventures with Errol Flynn, Claude Rains, Olivia de Havilland and Basil Rathbone. Along the way, the studio pioneered talkies when they distributed The Jazz Singer in 1927.

 

“`On a personal note, I was able to capture remarkable photos that referenced some of my favorite movies:  Casblanca, The Maltese Falcon, The Music Man, and My Fair Lady.  Plus, a highlight was Batman’s official room, a display of iconic memorabilia.

“`Best of all, my parents and sister were treated to images from their youth. Happy birthday mom!!

Until next time>                               “never forget”
