    I've wanted to work in the film industry ever since I was a young boy. I was still in high school i live about an hour and a half from Hollywood. I'd love to work for Warner Bros. especially. The studio in Burbank where my uncial worked as a production manager and since you lived relatively close to Burbank), one morning I show up at the studio and look for work every day at the crack of dawn. PA gigs are a dime-a-dozen. Sometimes they just need extras or somebody to help out. Depends entirely on the current schedule. But you essentially have to do to this every day. By starting as a PA or any other bottom-feeding position, you can work your way up over time and branch out into other areas. The obstacle you are most likely to face is t…

    I was also fortunate enough to land a part time job working as a darkroom accent for, Consolidated Film Industries.

    Ann Blyth

    June 23, 2014 by Focuspuller

    Ann Blyth big break when she was allowed to test for Mildred Pierce at the Warner Bros. studio. I first made the acquaintance of Ann Blyth on the film set of Mildred Pierce, (1945). Warner Bros had borrowed Ann for this film. It was Anton Grot’s that called Ann over and introduces me to her. What was so special about Ann? Well, she was just a nice person who always had a warm smile and a pleasant word for she exuded maternal compassion and was ever willing to listen to anyone's tales of woe (including mine). It was five days after wrapping this major film that Ann Blyth experienced a horrific event, and would spend her remaining teen years in a most heart breaking series of personal challenges. Her mother took Ann and some friends up to th…
