It must've been taken around the time of that infamous Burt Reynolds centerfold issue in Cosmopolitan which was April of 1972.

I saw this photo also taken at the same corner at Sunset and Hayvenhurst Dr. about 8 years after the above photo.

The billboard is advertising an Allan Carr disaster, "Can't Stop the Music", which had been originally titled "Discoland-Where the Music Never Ends"...but disco waned drastically before the movie came out, and across the street a slightly better remembered film, Little Darlings.

I don't recall the Chateau Marmont having that noticeable sign on it, though it obviously did. I mean, the Marmont was never scrambling for walk or drive-in business!
