Photograph of an exterior view of the Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation Studios at 5451 Marathon Street in Hollywood, 1930. The studio building is located on the left side of a street at center. It is a long, two-story building covered with light-colored spackle. Several tall rectangular windows look out on the street below. The main entrance is through an elaborately carved stone archway in the foreground at left, and a sign above the entryway bears the name of the studio. A line of dark vehicles is parked along the side of the street in front of the building, and many pedestrians can be seen as well.
