East of Eden came to life.
This program also looks at WB’s earlier
homes along Hollywood’s “Poverty Row,”
the birthplace of Looney Tunes, and the
site of WB’s pioneering marriage between
film and sound in the 1920s.
Early Warner Bros. Studios also tells
the tale of four brothers: Harry, Albert,
Sam, and Jack Warner, scions of a Polish
Jewish immigrant family who rose from
the humblest of origins to become
Hollywood moguls of enormous and
lasting influence.

Studios worker as well as newspaper
columnist and film-series host, and
volunteers with his wife, Kim, a 22-year
WB employee, as a docent for the Warner
