View of Sunset-Gower Newsstand on Gower, southeast corner. It was on this spot many years ago that movie "extras" lingered and waited for that lucky call from Columbia Studios casting office who turned out western movies about every 10 days. The cowboy extras were already dressed in their hats, chaps, and bandanas, prepared to act in a crowd scene in a saloon, or as a member of a posse, or a ranch hand. Pay was usually $5 a day, $10 for a speaking part. Hollywoodites called it "Gower Gulch." Photo dated: January 1977.
