Charlie Chaplin and Henson Studios
Our Private Tour Smiles at Chaplin Memories
Even if it were not decorated to impart memories of Charlie Chaplin, the Henson Studios in Hollywood catches the eyes of our private Los Angeles tour groups as we drive along La Brea. The brick entrance gate and shingled roof occupying the corner of the block suggest that something important is happening on the other side of the walls. It is a movie studio…a historic studio at that. Charlie Chaplin’s studio. Later owners included Red Skelton, CBS (Perry Mason was filmed here; Raymond Burr lived on the lot), and Herb Alpert (home to A&M records and We Are The World). Now the Muppets call the old studio home as Kermit the Frog, atop the wrought iron gate, assumes the iconic character of Chaplin’s Little Tramp and Charlie himself is painted on the door leading into the studio.
