Entrance to the Hollywood Pictures Backlot

California Adventures 10

The entrance to the Hollywood Pictures Backlot is guarded, so to speak, by two ceramic elephant sculptures on tall columns. It's a tribute to a set constructed for the 1916 film Intolerance. The Kodak Theatre (where the Oscars are hosted) also have elephant sculptures atop columns.

It's Hollywood, just nod and smile.


  1. A-ha! The people around the corner must have recently returned from Disneyland or the Kodak Theatre, which explains the foot-high purple ceramic elephants they have mounted on plinths at each side of the stairs into their yard. Thank you, Amy. Mystery solved. :)

  2. Haha! I want to see. Glad I could help solve the mystery. :D
