FARLEY GRANGER GOT HIS START IN FILM WHILE LIVING IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

The Granger family moved to the San Fernando Valley for a second start, after the father lost his job and their home in San Jose.  Finding work in the North Hollywood branch of the California Department of Unemployment, the father was able to secure a small home in Studio City. 
With some experience in stage acting and dance, Farley Granger was placed in an entertainment unit during his service in the Second World War. His exposure to USO performers encouraged his to seek his successful career in film. He became one of Alfred Hitchcock's favorite actors.
