Episode Info

Movie-related questions for the detectives. Among them: Was a collector's movie camera used to film "King Kong"? Was the L.A. area's first movie studio located in the unglamorous Lincoln Heights neighborhood? And was there a tie between mogul Harry Warner and a German studio that made Nazi-propaganda films? That would be surprising because Warner, a Jew, was "an outspoken antifascist," says detective Elyse Luray.
