Bestselling author and Hollywood historian David Wallace unveils 25 enchanting buildings and homes from Hollywood's glorious Golden Age. Hollywood buffs and architecture enthusiasts alike will savor this in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the histories of these spectacular structures, as well as the titillating revelations about many of their famous occupants. Each restored to its original grandeur, the buildings here-from private homes to theaters, hotels, restaurants, and hot spots of the day-are showcased in 200 sumptuous photographs, all specially commissioned for this book, as well as rare historic shots. The intimate portraits of these famed spaces-including the homes of Hollywood superstars such as Cary Grant, Gloria Swanson, Cecil B. DeMille, and Charlie Chaplin, plus locations like Grauman's Chinese Theater and the Max Factor building-demonstrate the innovation, ingenuity, and drive that gave birth to Hollywood.

If you appreciate Old Hollywood and the houses that were/are there, then you are going to love this book. The architecture back then was so much better than the cookie cutter houses of today! And I am referring to the celebrity homes of today where they all look the same both inside and out. Nothing special about today's celebrity homes. If you want to see some stunning photos of yesteryear's celebrity houses, then this is the book for you! There truly are some jaw dropping pictures! In my humble opinion, the celebrities of today have no taste when it comes to their houses. There is a reason why the houses of an era long gone are still standing ( some, not all thanks to people who purchase houses then demolish them to build a modern house). The houses of then were built with care and materials were quality, not like today. Anyway, I am sure you will love this book if you appreciate old houses.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from cover to cover. There are so many interesting stories and tid bits about the stars of Hollywood's golden age. From the suave Cary Grant to the powerful DeMille to the comic W.C. Fields. The homes are anywhere from spectacular to homey. This book also covers some famous theaters and restaurants. I highly recommend it!

A nice coffee table book that has wonderful photos and very interesting commentary on each house. Not only are the associations with various movie people interesting but equally good was reading how most of the houses had to be rehabilitated and what was involved. A nice book to read in short spurts.

The book was in good, but not excellent condition. The cover was damaged along the bottom of the binding.
The photography and the general conditions of the book are very good. I'm enjoying reading it.

This is one I got from the library and will buy my own copy to look at over & over again. I thought the present day photography was outstanding. There is also a smattering of period black & white shots.

The properties included are:

Wallace Beery's streamline moderne 1936 home

Cecil B. Demille's house- not the main house but his office, connected to the main house by a breezeway; Charlie Chaplin leased it for a while and deMille bought after Chaplin moved.

the Edward & Estelle Doheny house

the Will & Ariel Durant house

W.C. Field's house (the one on DeMille Drive)

Cary Grant and Randolph Scott's Los Feliz house (they also later lived in the Norma Talmadge beach house, below)

A 1930s streamline moderne Whitley Heights house

The Charles Laughton/Elsa Lanchester house in Pacific Palisades

The "Lombard residence" - a 1930s streamline moderne house in Laughlin Park supposedly once occupied/owned or something by Carole Lombard

The Lloyd Wright-designed Sowden house (here called the Soden-Hodel house)

A house in Whitley Heights that Gloria Swanson may have rented while making Sunset Boulevard

Norma Talmadge's beach house in Santa Monica (Cary Grant and Randolph Scott lived here as well)

A house known today as "The Cedars" referred to as "The Talmadge House" though not known to be one of Norma Talmadge's many residences.

Villa Vallombrosa, the Whitley Heights house where Janet Gaynor and husband Gilbert Adrian, among others, lived

The Jacques Vinmont house in Laughlin Park

The second of the book features the Norman and Dorothy Chandler house, the El Cabrillo apartments in Hollywood, the El Capitan and Grauman's Chinese theaters on Hollywood Blvd., a small Hollywood hilltop bungalow, the Richard Neutra-designed Holiday House motel in Malibu, the Max Factor building, Pig'N'Whistle restaurant, and Musso & Frank Grill in Hollywood, and Villa Aurora, a 1928 Mediterranean house in Pacific Palisades later owned by writer Lion Feuchtwanger and wife Marta. There is a selection of neon signage as well.

I found the text to be unreliable. Some of it is okay, but I noticed a lot of inaccuracies, though I wasn't looking for them especially. It's at its best when the owners are describing what they restored or changed on the house.
When Lucy and Ethel took the bus tour of the movie star homes on "I Love Lucy", you will undoubtedly recall Lucy finding herself bobbing for grapefruit at Richard Widmark's palatial estate. Now we can all see what is behind the other side of the barrier wall thanks to this elegant coffee table book compiled by fervent Hollywood historian David Wallace. With some beautiful photos and descriptive, trivia-laden text, he includes twenty-five buildings and homes that were designed and built during Hollywood's golden era.

Painstakingly restored to their original grandeur, they represent a variety of eclectic architectural styles from Art Deco to Mediterranean and Spanish Colonial. While the typical landmarks such as Graumann's Chinese Theater are here, the book is highlighted by the homes of screen legends like Carole Lombard, Gloria Swanson, Cecil B. DeMille, Chales Laughton, Cary Grant and Randolph Scott, and Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard. The furnishings within the homes are not so much lavish as surprisingly idiosyncratic and insightful to the personalities inhabiting the settings. The photographs by Juergen Nogai are often stunning and give evidence of both the creativity and decadence pervasive at the time. This is definitely a fun one to peruse.
