Universal Studio's Back lot on Fire
Film Archives Feared Lost - New Ethos Source Says Original Film Stock Most Likely Safe - Fr. Don Offers Prayer
[June 1, 2008, Universal City, CA.]: It has been said that you need to come to Los Angeles, the capital of the entertainment world, to "see and disbelieve." As I emerged from the rectory at St. Finbar parish (Burbank, CA.) to greet Sunday worshipers coming out of morning mass, I wasn't sure what to believe as I looked in the direction of Hollywood's smoked filled sky. Was it another LA fire encroaching on Hollywood or Burbank? But it seemed to be coming from the Universal Studios direction. Were they filming a movie?
