Lonely Planet review for Hollywood Heritage Museum
Just south of the Hollywood Bowl is an unassuming little barn with a big history. Hollywood's first feature-length flick, Cecil B DeMille's The Squaw Man, was shot in this building in 1913–14, which was originally positioned at the corner of Selma and Vine Sts. DeMille went on to cofound Paramount and had the barn moved to the lot in the '20s. Now the Hollywood Heritage Museum, it's filled with a great collection of costumes, projectors and cameras from the early days of movie-making, plus DeMille's recreated office.
