homes of the stars

Jim Parish sent me a link to a silent screen site which includes a feature on stars' homes. one is of the manse of Lila Lee & James Kirkwood. the background photo is a charming family portrait of the pair with their young son Jimmy. he's the lad who grew up to write such bestsellers as There Must Be a Pony & Good Times/Bad Times.

also on the site are the onetime homes of my friends Lois Wilson & May McAvoy. seeing them brought back memories of the time I had lunch at the Beverly Hills Brown Derby with the actresses. May drove me back to the Chateau Marmont via the side streets of BH where she pointd out all the oldtime stars homes.
