The Hollywood Sign

Hollywood sign

The Hollywood Sign is on top of Mount Lee, in the Hollywood Hills. It is the one landmark that says, “Hollywood” to the world - literally. The Sign measures 450 feet long. The letters are 45 feet high and it can been seen from all parts of Hollywood. It was erected in 1923 as an advertising sign for a real estate development in Beachwood Canyon.

The Sign originally read “Hollywoodland”. The last four letters were removed in 1945, after Hollywood had become the world's movie capital, and the Sign had already become a well-known landmark.

In 1932, during the Great Depression, one young actress, Peg Entwistle even jumped to her death from the Sign.

The original sign contained thousands of light bulbs, which were changed daily by a caretaker who lived in a small house behind one of the Sign's giant “L”s.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to reach the Sign itself. It is far from any roads. And even if you did manage to reach the area, you would discover that the Sign has been fenced in to keep out the curious and that an alarm system has been installed.
