"Ain't Nobody Straight in L.A." (1975) The Miracles

"My impression is you know, places like South Central L.A., around the country look more like the real third world countries - They're third world countries without the hope. That is that they have no medical care. They have no real economy - and yet in a third world country, it's developing. There is some onward development. There is some vision for the future."--Dr Bob Arnot cited in Spin

"Welcome to L.A., the city of the one-night stands"--trailer to Welcome to L.A. (1976) by Alan Rudolph

"One of the glories of Los Angeles is its modernist residential architecture, but Hollywood movies have almost systematically denigrated this heritage by casting many of these houses as the residences of movie villains."--Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003) by Thom Andersen
