My latest column, on Marc Chevalier and his amazing knowledge of all things Oviatt, appears in The Times today. I should add that the 2008 documentary mentioned in the column was directed by Seth Shulman who also filmed, edited, and sound mixed it.

    I’ve always wanted to go to the penthouse, but never felt I could afford it.

    Marc posts occasionally to the “Noirish Los Angeles” thread on skyscraper page.com

    Warning: the thread is both long and fascinating :-)

    Cheers,

    Earl

    Your article is another great window on the real LA – penthouse and clock on the top of that lost world.

    What a shame the doors and furniture were lost.

    Thanks Larry, keep up the great work. And more features, please.
