The Cornfields in “This Gun For Hire”

In Films!, LA owns me on January 20, 2013 at 11:12 pm

The men who worked LA’s railway hub down the hill from Broadway and right up next to  Spring Ave called the place “The Cornfields.”  There’s little physical evidence of the place now (a cool park on it’s way to becoming an awesome park) but there is this fantastic pen-ultimate action climax of the 1942 Alan Ladd/Veronica Lake film “This Gun For Hire.”
