Best On-Set Photo Of All Time: Hollywood Below

Posted By Administration, Thursday, October 22, 2015


This issue’s Best On-Set Photo of All Time comes from longtime PGA member and volunteer George NeJame, whose stages have hosted many a PGA General Membership Meeting over the years. George evidently has been sitting on this shot for more than 30 years, waiting for a suitable venue from which to show it off. We’ll let him pick up the story …

"This photo was taken in 1984 (one of my earliest forays into producing) when I was working at the Production Group in Hollywood. Ted Turner had partnered up with Fred Rheinstein from the Post Group to create the Cable Music Channel (CMC) to challenge MTV. In order to get the channel on air in time, our job was to put a temporary satellite dish on the roof of the 6290 West Sunset Blvd., on the southeast corner of Sunset and Vine. I set the shot, focused the camera and had one of my grips take the picture … One take!”

Well, the Cable Music Channel never even made it to 1985, and we admit that we haven’t scouted the Hollywood rooftops to see if the satellite dish is still there. But we’re proud to give this deserving moment its shot at immortality. Thanks, George!

We know what you’re thinking. "Best of all time? No way. I’ve got an on-set photo way better than that.” If that’s the case, we dare you to prove it. Submit it to Before you submit, please review the contest rules at Because no matter how great your photo is, we have no desire to get sued over it.
