The studio is located at 1416 N. LaBrea Avenue in Hollywood, CA. It resembled an English village with a series of gray, Colonial clapboard cottages and orderly, green landscaping. Some of his best silent films were filmed here, such as, "The Gold Rush" (1925), "City Lights" (1931), "Modern Times" (1936), and "The Great Dictator" (1939).
