OXY in the Movies - Part 5

At first glance, I thought this view was almost the same as the screen cap from "Pigskin Parade" 1936, but the more I looked, the more I realized it may be one of the most changed. The stands are new, the light towers are new,  and the current field is artificial turf which is definitely new! If you look very closely,  you will notice in the screen cap that Thorne Hall is missing and there is another building in it's place.  I'm not sure what the old building is, but the beautiful   Thorne Hall was not completed until 1938! The reality is,  the only things in this photo that are still around would be some of the larger trees!
