Quoting Goldenshield (Reply 1): It was owned by UA, and was still in a dumbed down UA livery when they used it for filming the TV series 'LAX.'
When they prepared it for filming, they took out the engines and other vitals, so now it's just a giant paperweight. I do believe they left in the hydraulics for braking and airstairs.
I remember when they towed it over to the old Lockheed area and stuck it in a hanger there for a few weeks.
Thank you, Goldenshield. Seems to be this one:

The aircraft, along with a pseudo terminal is maintained by the airport operator specifically for use as part of film/TV production work. (Hey this is Hollywood after all)
LA/Ontario International Airport (ONT) is pleased to offer its facilities to your production company. There are many usable sites at ONT available for filming 24 hours a day. A closed passenger terminal, a Boeing 727-200 airliner with full cabin interior and cockpit, unoccupied hangars and buildings, an ultra-modern passenger complex, aircraft parking areas, airline ticket counters, baggage claim areas, parking lots and curbside check-in await moviemakers.
