Walkabout: Hayworth, Not Rita Hayworth

The old DGA building was on the southwest corner of Hayworth and Sunset. It was torn down and this new complex built in its place. I went to a lot of screenings at the old DGA as well as a few memorial services including the one for John Cassavetes.
Just a few lots south of Sunset on Hayworth, F. Scott Fitzgerald dropped dead of a heart attack in the living room of his lover Sheila Graham's apartment. "Poor son-of-a-bitch," said Dorothy Parker at the funeral.
