Monogram was a Hollywood indie studio that produced a lot of schlocky low budget pictures. They didn’t make a decent movie until the 1950s when they were known as Allied Artists. Their sprawling studio still exists on Sunset Blvd and is now owned by the Church of Scientology.
Crown Records was a low budget record company that existed about the same time. Its original factory still occupies the intersection of Normandie & Slauson Avenues. Unlike Monogram, however, Crown produced some awesome product including classic blues, country, rock, surf, hot rod & psych records.
