Warner Brothers Studios
Initially famous for the films of canine star Rin Tin Tin, Warner would have many other successes: the release of The Jazz Singer, the world's first "talkie;" the elaborately-choreographed musicals of Busby Berkeley; the gangster films of James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson; the Looney Tunes cartoon shorts; classic films like Casablanca, Mildred Pierce and Bonnie and Clyde; popular TV shows such as Maverick, as well as the modern lineups of the WB and CW networks. More success came from the purchase of video game company Atari; the superhero properties of DC Comics; and amusement park chain Six Flags. Warner has also produced all of the Harry Potter films, the highest grossing film franchise in history.
Behind-the-scenes studio tours via golf carts (either 2-hours and 15-minutes or 5 hours in length) provide glimpses into back lot streets, sound stages and set- and prop-crafting shops. No two tours are alike, and stars sometimes wander into view or make deliberate appearances. Children 8 years and over are permitted and tours are given Monday to Friday.
