During Cinecon 52, author John Bengtson lead a locations tour of the Hollywood area near the Egyptian Theater. The highlight was the East Cahuenga Alley where Charles Chaplin filmed a sequence for "The Kid" (1921). In a Then & Now moment, the tour posed in the same place as Chaplin did during production of his feature film.
