Mack Sennett helped publicize two major developments in Los Angeles, Hollywoodland and Studio City, through his participation with them. He intended to construct a house atop the hill where the Hollywood Sign is now located as well as built the studio giving Studio City its name. Thanks to Flicker Alley, and CineMuseum, you can see shorts that show both of these areas.
