    The HOLLYWOOD sign was first built in 1920 and the full sign is originally read HOLLYWOODLAND with the purpose to advertise some real estate projects in Hollywood city.

    The sign became more popular when a hollywood actress name Peg Entwistle committed suicide by jumping off the letter H.

    Few years later, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce decided to remove the last four letter (LAND) to save electrical cost because the sign has to be illuminated during the night at the Chamber's cost.

    It was originally a real estate sign.

    Why would I want to know, about a Hollywood sign ? I can't see the rationality in this question?
