TRUTH !!
August 1978 - The old Sign is demolished and for the first time in more than
50 years, Angelenos are without the Sign for three months. Workers pour 194
tons of concrete to anchor the Sign, and helicopters drop a massive new
steel frame in place. Placing on the corrugated baked enamel letters was the
final step.
November 1978 - The new Sign, four stories high, 450-feet long and weighing
480,000 lbs., is unveiled on Hollywood’s 75th Anniversary celebration in
November 1978 live to a television audience of 60 million.
