Evening at the Barn: MGM Hollywood's Greatest Backlot
Hollywood's Shattered Kingdom: The MGM Backlot
Hollywood Heritage and the Hollywood Heritage Museum are pleased to be celebrating the accomplishment of two long-time volunteers, Steve Sylvester and Michael Troyan, with a special Evening @ the Barn presentation on October 12, 2011 at 7:30 PM, followed by a book signing for their new book, "M-G-M: Hollywood's Greatest Backlot", which they co-wrote with Steven Bingen. Mr. Bingen is also the author of "Warner Bros: The Stuff Dreams are Made Of", and works as an archivist at Warner Bros.
Steve Sylvester has been an integral part of Hollywood Heritage through his extensive work at the Wattles Mansion and Gardens. You may also remember Steve's terrific documentary on art director Robert Kinoshita, which was presented at the museum in 2004. Michael Troyan was a volunteer back when our museum was first named "The Hollywood Studio Museum." Since then he has authored "A Rose For Mrs. Miniver: The Life of Greer Garson" and contributed to "Disney A-Z, The Disney Villains", and "The Disney Poster Book".
In addition to the authors sharing their knowledge of the legendary M-G-M Studio, the evening will also include a visual presentation and a short film Mr. Sylvester made on the former studio, followed by a question and answer session and book signing. So Come celebrate the legacy of what many believe to be Hollywood's greatest movie studio! Advance tickets by phone or Internet are recommended through Brown Paper Tickets:
