Paramount Pictures Review

With a history dating to the early 1920s, this studio was home to some of Hollywood's most luminous stars, including Rudolph Valentino, Mae West, Mary Pickford, and Lucille Ball, who filmed episodes of I Love Lucy here. The lot still churns out memorable movies and TV shows, such as Forrest Gump, Titanic, and Star Trek.You can take a studio tour (reservations required; ages 12 and up) led by guides who walk and trolley you around the back lots. As well as gleaning some gossipy history (see the lawn where Lucy and Desi broke up), you'll spot the sets of TV and film shoots in progress.You can also be part of the audience for live TV tapings. Tickets are free; call for listings and times.
