Robert Redford romps on the roof and inside the Village movie theatre in Westwood in a 1965 clip (without sound) shot by actor Roddy McDowall. Good aerial footage of Westwood in those days and a shot of cars in the parking lot out back. At the time, Westwood Village was still coming into its own as the hot spot for movie premieres in L.A. Hat tip to Vintage Los Angeles on Facebook.
