Chaplin built this English cottage-style studio in three months beginning in November 1917. Chaplin shot many of his classics here including The Kid, The Gold Rush, City Lights, The Great Dictator and Limelight. He sold the studio in 1953. It was subsequently a TV studio (The Adventures of Superman, The Red Skelton Show, Perry Mason), the home of A&M Records, the site of "We Are The World", and a recording studio (Springsteen, Stones). It is now the home of The Jim Henson Company.
