THE TROCADERO

The Trocadero (8610 Sunset Blvd) was inaugurated in 1934 with a luxurious private party for agent Myron Selznick, and throughout the decade it had the loudest jazz, the best food, and the juiciest gossip to be found in Tinseltown. The club was famous for its Sunday Night Auditions which the studios used to showcase up-and-coming talent. It was at one of those auditions that Deanna Durbin got valuable exposure which led to a spot on Eddie Cantor's Texaco Town. For a glimpse of what the Trocadero was like during those heady times, check out the 1937 version of A STAR IS BORN, which was partially shot there.
