The Mysterious Lighting of the Hollywood Sign: The Plot Thickens

Last week’s two-night illumination of the Sign now has two possible explanations:
Though a fan of run-and-gun filming, I can’t imagine summoning the nerve to aim huge lights on the Hollywood Sign–after all, it’s not the kind of thing that would go unnoticed. If Cronenberg were the director it would be even more interesting, since he would have the budget for a permit. It’s most likely that the filmmaker, whichever he is, figured his application would be turned down and decided to go for it.
In reading the account, I realize I know not only the A-frame house in question but its former owner, Nick Roth, as well as the jogger, Adam Boardman. All of which proves that Beachwood Canyon is a Mayberry in the metropolitan sprawl of Los Angeles.
