The 1926 Art Deco Paramount Building – Times Square

The 1926 Art Deco Paramount Building - Times Square
By the end of World War I the motion picture industry had begun a serious migration to California. Yet in 1926 when Paramount Pictures decided to build its new headquarters, president Adolf Zuckor chose Times Square for the site. Paramount would make its mark on Broadway – the capitol of the American theater.

Architects C. W. Rapp and George L. Rapp of the Chicago-based firm Rapp and Rapp, who had designed several Midwestern movie theaters, were given the commission.

In May of 1926, the cornerstone was laid by Mayor Jimmy Walker. Sealed inside were three copper boxes containing the front pages of New York’s morning newspapers, three five-dollar gold coins, two Paramount feature films and news reels of Admiral Byrd’s Polar expedition. Thomas Edison sent a letter of congratulations.

Here on Broadway between 43rd and 44th Streets Rapp and Rapp produced a 33-story Art Deco tower, stair-stepping upward to an enormous four-faced clock surmounted by an illuminated globe. Stars replaced numerals on the clocks’ faces, echoing the stars in the Paramount logo.

Paramount spent $13.5 million on their new headquarters, the tallest building on Broadway north of the Woolworth Building. At night the globe could be seen from as far away as New Jersey.

On the Broadway side an ornate, curved marquee hung over the entrance to the theater. The lobby inside was modeled after the Paris Opera. Two grand, sweeping staircases curved upwards on either side. An enormous crystal chandelier hung from a baroque ceiling supported by marble columns.

The 3,664-seat auditorium was Neo-Renaissance in style with classical busts and statues in recessed niches, gilded detailing, and a frescoed ceiling. Red carpeting led to the stage hung with stories-high red velvet draperies. The orchestra pit was situated on hydraulic elevators, enabling it to be raised and lowered as needed.

The coup-de-grace was the “Dowager Empress,” one of the largest pipe organs ever built by Wurlitzer. Music accompanying the silent films emanated from the organ’s 33 tons of pipes and 36 ranks.

Opening on November 19, 1926, the theater took in a staggering $80,000 the first week.

Paramount used its New York theater to premier many of its films, introducing stars like Mae West, Claudette Colbert and William Powell; however with the Great Depression casting a cloud over the 1930s the venue was barely profitable. In an effort to boost attendance, the Paramount’s managers added live music as the Swing Era took hold. In December 1935 Glen Gray’s orchestra played.

The public loved it.

Big bands became a staple of the Paramount, offering the music of the biggest names in American swing: Tommy Dorsey, Xavier Cugat, Fred Warring, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, the Andrews Sisters, Guy Lombardo, Eddy Duchin, Harry James, Phil Spitalny and Gene Krupa.

As the years past, entertainers like Jack Benny, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, and Frank Sinatra would work the Paramount audience.

With the advent of World War II and the accompanying “black-out” orders, both the clock and the globe were painted black in 1944. They would remain that way until their restoration in 1996.

Famous 1950s music promoter Alan Freed used the Paramount to stage live rock-and-roll shows, spotlighting hot new talent. Here Buddy Holly and the Crickets performed. Here, too, Elvis Presley’s first movie, “Love Me Tender,” premiered on November 15, 1956. Thousands of fans crushed onto Broadway on opening night, under a 40-foot Elvis Presley cut-out.

The 1960s, with the popularity of television and the decline of the Broadway neighborhood, devastated the theater’s revenues. After the final screening of “The Carpetbaggers” on August 4, 1964 Paramount padlocked the doors to the palatial theater.

Within weeks the grand staircase was gone. The frescoes were destroyed. The chandeliers were sold. All traces of the lavish movie palace were obliterated as the space was converted into stores and offices. The mammoth organ was moved to Wichita, Kansas convention center. The familiar marquee that once held the over-sized depiction of Elvis Presley and had announced the movies of Gary Cooper, Gloria Swanson and Rudolph Valentino was removed and destroyed.

In 2000, the World Wrestling Federation leased 47,500 square feet of the Paramount Building, spending $38 million to create WWF New York – a wrestling-themed restaurant, retail store and club. Astoundingly, they painstakingly recreated the original Paramount Theater marquee and arch at a cost of $8 million, including the Paramount logo. Although WWF New York was relatively short-lived, the Paramount arch and marquee survived.

The 33-story Paramount Building is an iconic presence in the Broadway Theater District. Every day at 1:45 pm and 7:45 pm the giant clock atop the building chimes, alerting Broadway theater-goers that they have 15 minutes before curtain.

1843-O $5.00 NGC MS63

1843-O $5.00 NGC MS63
Mintage: 82,000

Large Letters variety. This is one of two varieties of half eagles produced by the New Orleans mint in 1843. It is more available than the Small Letters but it is a tough issue to find, especially in affordable collector grades.

This coin has a very interesting back story. Around August/September 2010 I was contacted by a non-collector who had this piece in his possession. It had been in the family, which had been in the banking business since the 1850’s. When the coin arrived in my office ("raw," of course) I was staggered by its beauty and its freshness.

The coloration is as nice as on any No Motto half eagle I can recall having seen. Both the obverse and reverse show rich, coppery splashes which are indicative of a piece that has never been cleaned or dipped. There are a few curious mint-made planchet striations that run horizontally across the upper obverse; I have seen these on a few other 1843-O Large Letters half eagle and this is probably a flaw in the planchet stock that is unique to this issue. A few scattered marks in the fields limit the grade but this piece has the look of a Gem and it is really an attractive example.

The 1843-O Large Letters was virtually unknown in Uncirculated as recently as the early 1990’s and the first Uncirculated piece that I can recall having seen (ex James Stack collection) was purchased by dealer Ed Milas back in 1994 for $46,750. Today, I am aware of 6-8 in Uncirculated and this includes a group of 4 MS63 to MS64 examples that surfaced around 1999 and were sold at two different Bowers & Merena auctions in 1999/2000.

The Billion Dollar Molecule: One Company's Quest for the Perfect Drug
Join journalist Barry Werth as he pulls back the curtain on Vertex, a start-up pharmaceutical company, and witness firsthand the intense drama being played out in the pioneering and hugely profitable field of drug research. Founded by Joshua Boger, a dynamic Harvard- and Merck-trained scientific whiz kid, Vertex is dedicated to designing — atom by atom — both a new life-saving immunosuppressant drug, and a drug to combat the virus that causes AIDS.
You will be hooked from start to finish, as you go from the labs, where obsessive, fiercely competitive scientists struggle for a breakthrough, to Wall Street, where the wheeling and dealing takes on a life of its own, as Boger courts investors and finally decides to take Vertex public. Here is a fascinating no-holds-barred account of the business of science, which includes an updated epilogue about the most recent developments in the quest for a drug to cure AIDS.

From test tubes to the Wall Street IPO and beyond, this is the riveting true story of a start-up pharmaceutical company working to create an anti-AIDS drug. Scientifically accurate, yet written with an attention to plot, timing, dialogue, and development of character more characteristic of the best thrillers.
