Parrish said strands of the Hollywood fault appear to run underneath the Millennium towers site near Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street but that further tests are needed for final confirmation.

A spokesman for the New York-based developer, Brian Lewis, said geologists did testing at the city's direction and found no evidence of a fault at the site. But he added: "We're happy to do more testing, and we fully intend to do more testing. We have no interest in building anything that would be unsafe."

RELATED: QUEENS EX-NAZI STILL IN NYC Rather than lose the business, the president of Universal Pictures, Carl Laemmle, flew to Germany in 1931 to push a new, heavily edited version. Laemmle, who was Jewish, even agreed to make the same cuts to the film across the world.

Colman is a neglected trade name (one who burns charcoal) with the appealing nickname Cole. Connery Scotsman Kim Kardashian Sean Connery, the original 007, bears an Irish surname related to the more common Conner and Connor.
