Hollywood

Hollywood

It is a neighborhood in the central region of Los Angeles, California. This ethnically diverse, densely populated neighborhood is notable as the home of the U.S. film industry, including several of its historic studios. And its name has come to be a shorthand reference for the industry and the people in it.

It was a small community in 1870 and was incorporated as a municipality in 1903. It was consolidated with the city of Los Angeles in 1910, and soon thereafter a prominent film industry emerged, eventually becoming the most recognizable film industry in the world.

Today, the entertainment industry has spread to other areas of Southern California and even other areas of the country, including New York City. However, Hollywood still remains an important part of the industry as the home of movie studios and entertainment-related industries.

The name “Hollywood" was the idea of H. J. Whitley, who bought a 500-acre ranch in the area. Whitley's idea was to use the ranch land as the starting point of a grand city. Whitley eventually earned the nickname of the “Father of Hollywood."

Although American filmmaking did not start in Hollywood, it did not take long for Hollywood to become the center of the industry. By 1920, It was world-famous as the heart of the film industry in the United States. In the following decades, television studios and music recording studios would also begin to call Hollywood home.
