This group of snapshots from 1922 show a silent film production on location at Muller Bros. Service Station at 6380 Sunset Blvd. (now the site of the Cinerama Dome).

I'm curious about by what's across the street. It looks like two large transformers on top of a building.

Here's an enlargement of the 'Barrymore & Stroheim' snap.


I believe that's Mr. Barrymore under that guy's arm. -and what's that tall mechanical thing that almost looks like a dual wig-wag?





and I've enlarged this one to see the background more clearly.


and to get a good look at Sid's socks.






one last enlargement. I thought I might recognize these two performers if I enlarged the photo. (no such luck) -those are some massive oil drums.



Does anyone have an idea what movie they're working on?
