Here’s a bit of fun trivia from a little documentary that aired on TCM the other day. It’s an early version of the directional signs used by movie crews. And “TWT” stands for?

[Update: “TWT” stands for “They Went Thataway.” Since I’ve been in L.A., the signs for movie crews have gone from marker scrawled on poster board to professional signs printed on light plastic. Sometimes they use obvious initials (CSI:NY) or fanciful titles. “Bedford Falls” was quite the rage a few years ago. I don’t know what movie crews do in the rest of the civilized world but in L.A., they use these signs.]
