Did you know that Dianne Keaton sold hot dogs at the old Broadway Theater in Downtown Santa Ana, or that she worked at the women’s department at the J.J. Newberry’s at Honer Plaza? Who remembers Honer Plaza? She used to like shopping at the Salvation Army’s thrift store, the one near First and Fairview streets.

Did you know that Marlon Brando went to Lathrop Intermediate for a time, or that Lucille and Desi Arnaz, Milton Bearle, Jack Benny and George Burns used to hang out at Daninger’s Tea Room at the Santora Downtown?

All of this and more at Santa Ana Showbiz!, a central place to remember and celebrate Santa Ana’s Hollywood connection, of the past and today.
