Cars and stars at the "Flying A"
Of course, if you're a movie star, you can't just drive any old car. The star ingenue at Santa Barbara's "Flying A," Mary Miles Minter had a peacock blue Packard, for example.
William Russell, the leading actor at the studio, also had a spiffy set of wheels. He poses here in front of the "Flying A" studio. That building is still here at Mission and Chapala, and still looks pretty much the same today as it did 100 years ago. Not sure what happened to the car.
