SAM GOLDWYN STUDIOS

 

5800 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood California

 

1708 Talmadge, Edendale (Silverlake) California

 

4000 Warner Blvd., Culver City California

 

 

There is always a little confusion between MGM and Goldwyn Studios for

although Metro Goldwyn Meyer has as part of its name ‘Goldwyn’, Sam

Goldwyn had his own production company.  Mabel’s contract was with Sam

Goldwyn not with MGM.  Sam Goldwyn Studio later became Warner

Brother’s Hollywood.  Mabel was with Goldwyn from 1918 to 1921. 

She worked on the East Coast and his Culver City lot formally the

Triangle Pictures.

According to the Blue Book of the Screen (1923) The Roach studio is

one of the three large studios in Culver City. Roach built the studio and

organized his companies there since 1919, when he moved from Glendale.

Mabel Normand made films there from 1926 until ill health ended her career.
