Overview


From Gloria Swanson's 1918 Hollywood bungalow to Brad Pitt's Beverly Hills estate, Movie Star Homes: The Famous to the Forgotten profiles the extravagant, lavish, and eccentric residences of the rich and famous. Each of the entries includes a photo of the star and brief summation of the star's career, the address of the star's home, a photo of the home as it looks today, and fascinating facts about the residence. In addition to magnificent mansions, the homes where celebrities lived before they became famous are also featured, such as Natalie Wood's humble 1945 residence and the home of Buster Keaton before he built his famed Italian villa in Beverly Hills.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
It's rare when a travel guide makes itself as meaningful at home as on vacation . . . This is one of them . . . The book is as much a trip down Memory lane as it is through Hollywood.
Palm Beach Post
[This book is] easily the most comprehensive book on the subject . . . encompassing everything from the silent days to the modern era . . . [the authors] have done a yeoman job.
RoadTripAmerica.com
Their careful selections, combined with photographs and biographical sketches of each actor result in a fascinating mosaic of Hollywood history and style from the early 1900's to the present.
