Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated October 24, 1961 partially reads, "The roof of the 27-year-old sound stage, one of the largest at Warner Bros., caved-in about 3:15 p.m. Sunday with an explosion-like roar, leaving a hole 50-by-75 feet in size and causing the building's walls to swell. There were no reports of injuries, but a watchman making his rounds narrowly missed being trapped inside. Police said Edward E. Flynn left the L-shaped building, which housed the 'Lawman' television set, about eight minutes before the roof came crashing down."
