Penn Station set for The Clock (1945) MGM built in Culver City


A soldier, Joe Allen (Robert Walker), on a 48-hour leave meets Alice Mayberry (Judy Garland) in Penn Station when she trips over his duffel bag and breaks the heel off one of her shoes.

According to Robert Osborne, in his introduction of this film on Turner Classic Movies, because World War II had not yet ended, filming on location was not considered cost-effective or easy. Consequently, the Penn Station set was built inside one of the large sound stages at MGM Studios in Culver City, California.
