Its stylish design and fanciful hand-carved wood décor by renowned architects Morgan, Walls & Clements made it an instant favorite with the movie colony as well as the local citizenry. Connected to the forecourt of the Egyptian Theatre by a side entrance, the Pig ‘N Whistle quickly became the place for stars to gather before and after movie premieres and discuss the industry over a few drinks. Stars such as Shirley Temple, Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable and Loretta Young were regulars, enjoying the restaurant’s wide range of menu items and soda fountain offerings. Household names like Cary Grant, Jane Wyman or Walter Pidgeon (Submitted on October 1, 2014.)
