The 65th Cannes Film Festival will be taking place next week and we're getting all hyped up on cinema and Hollywood news in anticipation. Here are some vintage behind-the-scenes photos of Paramount Pictures, in celebration of its 100 movie-making years.
Major movie production studio Paramount Pictures, founded in 1912 by Adolph Cukor (above left), marks its hundredth year in Hollywood. We’re sharing some photos from the February 27, 1970 LIFE cover story entitled “The Day the Dream Factory Woke Up.”
Take a nostalgic look at the fake mountains and towns, prop and wardrobe departments, studios and stages, and more scenes from the glory days of Paramount Pictures below:
“Paramount might have lacked the strong identity forged by some of the other major studios of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Warner Bros. was for years known for its gritty crime thrillers; MGM produced glitzy extravaganzas and musicals. Paramount, on the other hand, was all over the map — but that was perfectly okay. After all, if a studio could deliver movies like (just to name a few) The Ten Commandments, Chinatown, Rosemary’s Baby and The Godfather, it had to be doing something right.
