Some Mid 1960s Universal Studios Views

Universal Studios in the mid 1960s was a unique tourist attraction. A true Movie Studio filled with the locations that were familiar to all visitors. This was before other Universal Studio's throughout the world. Also, the attraction did not have the rides that are now at the park.
First up are a couple images of a couple of World War 2 films.

An image of the European Street with its winding roads and cobble stone look.

My favorite image is of the boneyard with Lincoln right in the middle.

That last one is rather odd! I used to like Universal (in Hollywood) when it was the only one. The tour was fun and exciting because you might see a famous actor. Lord knows I strained my eyes looking for Robert Wagner!

I believe the Lincoln Statue was the landing place for Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson at the end of 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World'. The Jack in the Box was used by Alfred Hitchcock in his introduction to an episode of 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'.

PT-73 was the boat from McHale's Navy.
