WHAT DOES THE LOT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

the lot

Samuel Goldwyn Studio

Coordinates: 34°05′22″N 118°20′47″W / 34.089575°N 118.346475°W / 34.089575; -118.346475 Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks hang the entrance signs for their Pickford-Fairbanks Studios in Hollywood Samuel Goldwyn Studio was the name that Samuel Goldwyn used to refer to the Pickford-Fairbanks Studios lot and the offices and stages that his company, Samuel Goldwyn Productions, rented there during the 1920s and 1930s. Because several independent producers that distributed through United Artists used "the lot," located on the corner of Formosa Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood, California, it was also known as "United Artists Studio." Although Goldwyn did not control the deed for the land, he and Joseph Schenck built many of the facilities on the lot. Today, the nickname "The Lot" is the official name for this studio lot. After Douglas Fairbanks died in 1939, leaving his share of the deed to Mary Pickford, Goldwyn sought to rename the lot "Samuel Goldwyn Studio." Pickford and Goldwyn fought over the name and ownership of the property until a court ordered that the lot be auctioned in 1955.
