The Pan-Pacific Auditorium, an arena-entertainment venue that served the Los Angeles area for close to forty years. Its towers reflected a sleek, aircraft-inspired look, and each was crowned with a high-reaching flagpole and corresponding flag or pennant. It opened on May 18, 1935 and was the first major commission for architecture partners Walter Wurdeman, Charles F. Plummer and Welton Becket. Three decades later, Becket would partner with United States Steel and Disney in creating the design for the Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World.

The Pan-Pacific was one of the more famous examples of Steamline Moderne design, an extension of Art Deco that became prominent during the mid-1930s. The style proved especially popular for much of the architecture created for the 1939-1940 New York World’s Fair. The style’s influence could be seen in the art direction of films such as Lost Horizon and The Wizard of Oz, and also in the designs of consumers products including appliances, automobiles and trailers…

Life gallery: Modish Milan: Style & Substance
As the largest city in Italy’s prosperous north, Milan is known the  world over as a center of industry and culture. Its special blend of  cosmopolitism, which draws on tradition with an eye to the future, is  reflected in everything from the city’s art and architecture to the way  its citizens work and have fun. (Racing extremely expensive cars comes  to mind.) Heavily influenced over the centuries by its neighbors and  today home to a large immigrant population, Milan is also home to a  hodgepodge of cultures.

Happy Birthday Robert Redford! — Robert Redford: UNPUBLISHED Photos 
He had the requisite looks, charm, and talent — but it wasn’t until 1969 that Robert Redford truly broke out, guns blazing, as a Hollywood stud. That was the year of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and also the year that LIFE photographer John Dominis spent a week with the mustached man’s man, as the star mixed business and pleasure at his homes in Utah and New York.
Only a few of the photos Dominis captured made it into the February 1970 LIFE cover story trailing Redford — but now, as the iconic actor/filmmaker turns 75 (on August 18, 2011), LIFE.com presents never-before-published photos from that amazing shoot: Redford in the mountains on horseback, strolling around Times Square, and always, always taking care of business.
