Chris,
 
I lived in a suburb of LA from June '78 through July '79 - a period of time
in which one of the O's in the "wood" part of the Hollywood sign was missing
(from a mudslide, if memory serves).  If in your research you come across a
film where the sign appears in its o-less state, I'd be interested in
knowing,  just for nostalgia's sake.
