History of Laurel Canyon

With the creation of the Hollywood film industry in 1910, the canyon attracted a host of ‘photoplayers,’ including Wally Reid, Tom Mix (car crash on 10/12 bday of Crowley), Clara Bow, Richard Dix, Norman Kerry, Ramon Navarro, Harry Houdini (US secret service and Scotland Yard, The Grim Game was shot on Lookout Mountain, died on Halloween) and Bessie Love.

In 1940 Science Fiction author Robert Heinlein (Stranger in a Strange Land) had meetings with Ron Hubbard (founder of Church of Scientology), Jack Parsons (OTO) and other occultists/science fiction writers at his Laurel Canyon home (the Manana Society).

The same year The Great Dictator with Charlie Chaplin was shot in Laurel Canyon, a parody of Adolf Hitler.

In 1942 Jack Parsons became head of the OTO. Moyna Macgill, daughter of George Lansbury (Peace Pledge Union with Bertrand Russell, Aldous Huxley, Gerald Heard) and her daughter Angela Lansbury move to Laurel Canyon and meet with Aldous Huxley and Jidda Krishnamurti of the Theosophical Society.

The Lookout Mountain airforce base of Laurel Canyon, operated as a movie studio, it was later bought by Jared Leto.

In the early phase, the music industry was centered in New York (Tin Pan Alley with Kay Swift, wife of James Warburg), Nashville and Memphis. After EMI had bought Capitol Records, the Capitol Records Building in Hollywood was finished in 1955.

In the 60's Capitol released the albums of The Beatles in the US (Beatlemania). Lester Lou Adler (produced the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Cheech and Chong, signed The Mamas and The Papas to Dunhill Records) opens the first nightclubs like the Whisky a Go Go and Roxy Theatre at the Sunset Strip to promote obscure LA bands like The Byrds and The Doors.

The Laurel Canyon clubs and bands were promoted in the media by Life Magazine, Jack Paar and with celebrities Steve McQueen, Jack Nicholson and Jayne Mansfield. During its heyday, the canyon even had its own management company, Lookout Management, to handle the talent.

John Hammond Vanderbilt Sloane of Columbia Records, producer of Bob Dylan and cousin of William Sloane Coffin, mentored Nick Kevet of Capitol, who signed The Beach Boys.

The Laurel Canyon acts were promoted on the Ed Sullivan Show (CBS). All their artwork refers to blue bird Horus, Project Bluebird.

In 1964 The Beatles played at the Whisky a Go Go with Jayne Mansfield and Mamie van Doren.

AIP released LSD film The Trip during the Summer of Love in 1967, filmed in Laurel Canyon.
