Hollywood's First Major Film Company Studio

One-half of this structure, then in use as a barn, was rented by Cecil B. DeMille as the studio in which was made the first feature-length motion picture in Hollywood, “The Squaw Man”, in 1913. It was originally located at the corner of Selma and Vine streets, and in 1927 was transferred to Paramount Studios. Associated with Mr. DeMille in making “The Squaw Man” were Samuel Goldwyn and Jesse Lasky, Sr.
