Mack Sennett's old studio building in Echo Park

The former Mack Sennett Studio -- where the magic used to happen, believe it or not -- behind a Jack-in-the-Box.

Last week we told you about the Mack Sennett studio that wasn't really Mack Sennett's. Today, we spotlight the studio in Echo Park where Sennett became a a Silent Film legend.

Echo Park - One of the most historic film studios in Los Angeles - in America, really - is behind a Jack-in-the-Box on Glendale Boulevard. And you've probably never noticed it because it's completely integrated into a Public Storage campus.
