A new sign replaced the old one in the 1970s. Despite the 1949 restoration, the Hollywood sign eventually began to deteriorate once again. The third O, for example, tumbled down the side of Mount Lee, and arsonists set fire to the bottom of the second L. In 1978, Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner held a gala at his mansion, where he and eight other donors, including rock musician Alice Cooper, pledged nearly $28,000 each to fund a replacement. After a three-month period without a sign, construction finished up later that year.
