KTTV relocated to new studios (Fox Television Center) a few miles away on South Bundy Drive in West Los Angeles, near the Fox network headquarters (the network's headquarters are on the lot of 20th Century Fox studios). The historic television studio at Metromedia Square, once home to Norman Lear's Tandem Productions and TAT Communications Company, also produced hit programs such as ''The Jeffersons'', ''Mama's Family'', ''Diff'rent Strokes'', ''One Day at a Time'', ''Hello, Larry'', ''Soul Train'', ''Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman'', ''Small Wonder (Small Wonder (TV series))'' and the groundbreaking sketch comedy ''In Living Color''. Many of those programs, either in first-run or off-network syndication, aired on KTTV. It was demolished in 2003 to make way for a new high school (Helen Bernstein High School) being built by the Los Angeles Unified School District. The Forum became a landmark in the Greater Los Angeles Area, in large measure from the success of the Lakers and from the Hollywood celebrities often sighted in its audiences. It hosted a vast number of events such as tennis matches, concerts, boxing matches, and political events. It is sometimes referred to as the "Los Angeles Forum" or "L.A. Forum" to differentiate it from other buildings, venues and places carrying the name "Forum". thumb left 150px Darwell in the play ''A Doll's House'', 1945. (File:Jane Darwell 1945.JPG) She took up voice culture and the piano followed by a course in dramatics. At one point she decided to enter a convent but instead changed her mind and became an actress. Darwell began her acting career in theater productions in Chicago (Chicago, Illinois) and made her first film appearance in 1913. She appeared in almost twenty films over the next two years before returning to the stage. After a 15 year absence from films, she resumed her film career in 1930 with a role in ''Tom Sawyer (Tom Sawyer (1930 film))'', and her career as a Hollywood character actress began. Short, stout and plain-faced she was quickly cast in a succession of films usually as the mother of one of the major characters. She was especially prevalent in Shirley Temple films; she appeared in five films with Temple, usually as the housekeeper or grandmother. With the explosion of film musicals in the late 1920s, Hollywood attracted a number of ambitious young songwriters and Coslow joined the exodus in 1929. Coslow and his partner Larry Spier sold their publishing business to Paramount Pictures and Coslow became a Paramount songwriter. One of his first assignments for the studio was the score for the 1930 film ''The Virtuous Sin''. He formed a successful partnership with composer Arthur Johnston (Arthur Johnston (composer)) and together they provided the scores for a number of films including Bing Crosby vehicles. * 2004 Atlantic hurricane season: Hurricane Frances affects the British Virgin Islands, the United States Virgin Islands and the northern-east part of Puerto Rico.

''The Complete David Bowie'': p.56 She needed a role which could make her a star. It was in 1963, when it was decided to make a movie of the sensational novel "Angélique" (Angelique (series)), that Michèle got her chance. Many actresses were approached to play the role of Angélique (Angelique (series)). Producer Francis Cosne wanted Brigitte Bardot for the part. She refused. Annette Stroyberg was considered next, but judged not sufficiently well-known. Catherine Deneuve was too pale, Jane Fonda spoke French with an American accent, and Virna Lisi was busy in Hollywood. The most serious actress considered was Marina Vlady. She almost signed a contract, but Mercier won the role after trying out for it - she did not appreciate this very much since she was being treated like a beginner at a time when she was already well-known in Italy. At the time she was contacted to play Angélique (Angelique (series)), she had already acted in over twenty films. During the next four years she made five sequels which enjoyed astonishing success. However the role of Angélique (Angelique (series)), "the Marquise of the Angels", was both a blessing and a curse. It catapulted her to almost instant stardom, rivalling Brigitte Bardot in celebrity and popularity, but the character of Angélique (Angelique (series)) overshadowed all other aspects of her career. By the end of the 1960s, the names Angélique (Angelique (series)) and Michèle Mercier were synonymous.

Individual installments of this show were based on real-life events. The three-part pilot episode, “The November Plan,” was based on a notorious 1933 American conspiracy known as the Business Plot, which involved wealthy businessmen trying to bring down United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a coup. Another episode, "The Castle of Dreams," featured a pricey brothel where the prostitutes were movie-star lookalikes. That establishment was based on the historical T&M Studio (later fictionalized in ''L.A. Confidential'' as the "Fleur de Lis Club"). During the show's run, Nazism, communism, railroad-riding hoboes, and the Ku Klux Klan all figured into the plots.

Furthermore, Mikoyan approached the mission with an unprecedented informality, beginning with phrasing his visa request to US Embassy as "a fort-night's holiday" to visit his friend, Mikhail Manshikov, the current Soviet Ambassador to the USA. While the White House was taken off guard by this seemingly impromptu diplomatic mission, Mikoyan was invited to speak to numerous elite American organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Detroit Club in which he professed his hopes for USSR to have a more peaceful relationship with the USA. In addition to such well received engagements, Mikoyan indulged in more informal opportunities to meet the public such as having breakfast at a Howard Johnson's restaurant on the New Jersey Turnpike, visiting Macy's Department Store in New York City and meeting celebrities in Hollywood like Jerry Lewis and Sophia Loren before having an audience with President Dwight Eisenhower and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.
