Interior Images at Universal

One of the main draws to visit Universal Studios is that it is a working film studio and visitors can see filming as it happens on their favorite TV show or upcoming film. Also, there are many production facilities on the lot. The tour used to showcase some of the production facilities. Here are some images from 1968 showing some of the aspects of the tour. The first two images are from Doris Day's dressing room if I remember correctly.

Next up is a shot from what I remember as a make up show, showcasing the artistry of hair and make up for television and film.

The last image for today shows a set of the interior of a submarine.

Just a note on yesterday's post, I have received a couple of e-mails stating the tank is not an M-3. After further research, I believe it may be a Type 95 Japanese light tank. Both tanks look very similar.

I don't remember seeing Doris Day's dressing room, but I do seem to recall seeing Lucille Ball's bungalow. Maybe I didn't know who Doris Day was when I was a kid!

Looks like a pretty nice place to come back to after a long day of shooting.

Hey Major- I looked at a time line and Doris Day's dressing room was listed. I tried to find images to compare to see if it was Lucy's Bungalow and no such luck. I am still not certain if this was Doris Day's or Lucille Ball's.

These are great! Vintage Universal shots are pretty unusual...
