The National Park Service celebrated Paramount Ranch’s 90th birthday with a look back on nearly a century of film history at the storied studio ranch, where scenes from hundreds of movies and TV series have been filmed.

More than 100 film fans joined historians Marc Wanamaker and Mike Malone at the June 4 event, which was sponsored by the Santa Monica Mountains Fund. Participants took a short hike that offered an overview of the park, before settling down to listen to interviews and see film clips and stills.
