Climb a historical landmark in LA. This is where the famous, Academy Award winning short, Laurel and Hardy made called "The Music Box”. Filmed back in the 1930's the story is about two movers trying to deliver a piano, up these steps. There is a plaque is dedicated at the bottom to this film. It’s faded but you can still see images of their faces.

If you happen to get stuck on the upper level, on Descanso, there are a couple of steps you can take to cross the street. Just be very careful crossing, and watch for cars, because of the blind curb.
