 BACKGROUND: Paramount celebrates its 80th anniversary in July
 1992, having been founded by movie pioneers Adolf
 Zukor, Jesse Lasky, Samuel Goldwyn and Cecil B.
 De Mille in 1912. It has occupied its historic
 movie lot in Hollywood since 1926 and is the only
 major movie studio still headquartered in the
 Hollywood area. In 1983, its outdoor New York
 Street burned to the ground in a tragic fire. This
 year, Paramount has constructed the movie industry's
 most advanced permanent outdoor set. Studios have
 traditionally called such sets "New York Street,"
 although they are often used to duplicate virtually
 any city. Paramount's new New York set has several
 identifiable "neighborhoods" from Wall Street to
 Soho, and Brooklyn to Washington Square.
 CONTACT: Harry Anderson, 213-956-5845, or James Arnold, 231-956-5767, both of Paramount.
