Anyone who knows M well, knows that he is a movie buff. He has always been interested in movies, especially the classics and has always wanted to visit Hollywood. His favourite movie is Casablanca and Humphrey Bogart is his favourite actor! With only a few days here, time is of the essence. We have a date with Universal Studios on our first full day. I have never seen M move so fast and i have committed to following him around all day. We go to every performance, (unfortunately for me) experience every main ride and take not ONE but TWO tours of the Studio. Actually, the Studio Tour is the highlight of the day. It is interesting, informative, fun and exciting. We see Wisteria Lane, where Desperate Housewives is being filmed as we tour; we also see old and new sets from many movies and films. It is exciting to see how special effects are done and to experience simulated floods, fires and earthquakes. The back lot is more interesting than the rest of Universal Studios as it is a working production area. We leave only at closing time, happy but tired.
