RKO Radio Pictures – Now Paramount Pictures

RKO Radio Pictures studios on Melrose

Hollywood Tour Guests Always Notice the Globe Logo

One of Hollywood‘s Big 5 when the sound era arrived in 1928, RKO Radio Pictures was a formidable presence on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood for many decades and produced a great number of filmdom’s greatest films before its demise.  Finally merged into Paramount in the late 60s the corner still bears the RKO globe symbol at the corner of Melrose and Gower.  We love bringing our private Los Angeles tour guests to this location because it conjures images so well of Hollywood’s Golden Age.  We can then describe the heyday of the popular filmmaking studio and Orson Welles, George Cukor, Howard Hughes, David Selznick and even Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball, all participants in the wonderful history of RKO Radio Pictures.
