Homes of rich and famous in Hollywood

 on February 27, 2014
By Rama Rao
This is a very interesting book for all fans of Hollywood stars, and for those who would like to visit Hollywood and Beverly Hills to see movie star homes. This book provides the address of many Hollywood stars from silent era to the currently active actors and actresses. Most of these houses are located in Beverly Hills and surrounding areas in Southern California. So, if you are driving, then it is easy to cover a lot of houses in one day trip. The authors provide for each house, the street address, a picture of the house, and a brief profile of the actor/actress. In some cases the history of the house is also discussed.

Great little read

I kept this book in the car with me and would whip it out if I had some down time in the area in between sales calls. I am also a fan of filming locations in the area such as the Brady Bunch house, the Poltergeist house, the ET house, and such. Many of the homes were ordinary or simply above average places where these stars would live, long before the papparazzi and TMZ would pester them. Google maps street view and sattelite view has taken some of the allure away from a book like this but for the price and the readability it is a good paperback. The crooked Hollywood sign font on the cover with the palm trees and Sunset Blvd sign is so Los Angeles.
