Hollywood, CA. October, 1981

I still don't think of Hollywood as having any kind of public school system, so I'm always amazed when I pass Hollywood High. What are the classes like? Who goes there? I think of Tuesday Weld in a 1950s short skirt and a cashmere sweater batting her eyelashes and having some crew-cut preppy guy in a varsity jacket carrying her books. "Science is truth found out" carved on the building. "Achieve the honorable," an odd choice of motto for such a scandalous town. Or maybe not. This was shot on my first visit to Hollywood High. And now that there's an In-n-Out Burger nearby, I'm sure to return more often.
