Famous Casting Couch

The proverbial Hollywood Casting Couch has been recreated on the north facing deck of the Hollywood and Highland Shopping Center in Hollywood. Facing the dramatic backdrop of the Hollywood Hills and the famous Hollywood sign, this makes a memorable souvenir photo. Under the couch is a mosaic with the confession of "The Road to Hollywood, How Some Of Us Got Here" written on it.
