Mini Bio (1)

Set designer John Jasper worked with Charlie Chaplin for almost 13 years, and in 1919 left Chaplin Studios to build three production-stages on a stretch of empty Hollywood land at 1040 North Las Palmas Avenue. He rented his stages to movie companies as Hollywood Studios, Inc., or Jasper Hollywood Studios. It was the first such studio on the 16.5 acre site, which would become one of the most famous and well-used film locations of the 20th century. Literally hundreds of famous films and later television shows were made at Jasper's lot. His studio was run by Chicago investor C.E. Toberman, one of many outsiders to come to Hollywood and become wealthy in the new business.
