    This was just something I was thinking about at work today. I figured I'd ask it here since it ensconces both movies and TV.

    Back in 1986 (I believe it was), the MGM lot in Culver City was sold to Lorimar. They would be bought by Warner Communications shortly thereafter, but I was wondering if anybody knew if any of Lorimar's programming was made at Culver City during their ownership of the lot. It would just seem odd if episodes of "Full House" and "Perfect Strangers" were made on the same stages that "The Wizard Of Oz" and "Gone With The Wind" were.

    Sincerely,

    John Kilduff...

    I just think about these things every so often.

    I know there has been a lot of consolidation in the old movie lots when the companies realized the value of the huge amount of land they were sitting on.

    I was on Wheel of Fortune in 1999. They film at the Sony Pictures lot, which was MGM. I just wonder what movies were filmed on that stage I was standing on!
