On Veterans Day last year, a plaque was installed on the Fox Lot in Los Angeles to honor all Fox colleagues who serve and have served in defense of the United States. In honor of Veterans Day this year, Fox Vets laid a wreath on the plaque and erected flags representing each branch of the military, including a POW/MIA flag in remembrance of prisoner-of-war and missing-in-action service members.

Heritage

When the permanent buildings on the Twentieth Century Fox lot were constructed in 1928, the bungalows and the dressing-room buildings were all located on the southeast corner of the lot close to the Tennessee Gate, which served as the main entrance to the studio. Those continued to be used, but the biggest stars were given suites in the brand new Building 86 located near the Commissary, which soon became known as the "Stars' Building."

Heritage

The unassuming Building #41, one of the oldest buildings on the 20th Century Fox Film lot, has been in the same location since the 1920s. It was originally a barn used by actor, director and writer Tom Mix for his horses when he was allowed to come out to the country and ride around the newly purchased Fox property when it was just acres of rolling hills.
