Movie Star Homes

Just for fun here are some very cool 1940's linen style Movie Star Homes postcards from my collection. I have always wanted to know how many different postcards of this style were done. Does anybody out there know?

Residence of Bob Hope - North Hollywood

Home of Clark Gable - Brentwood Highlands

Home of Bette Davis - North Hollywood

Residence of Judy Garland - Bel Air

Home of Bing Crosby - Toluca Lake

Love this post! I don't know how many were done, but this is funny to me because I think I have some of those, too - and I may just have to copy you and do a post about them sometime.
As it happens, you've got a few of my FAVORITE people there! Thank you for sharing them; I really enjoyed seeing them.

Postcards are my favorite way to look back at the past. And these are some of my favorites. By al means share your postcards. I wil do one more post over the week end of some others that I have of celebrity homes.

Thanks for looking Heidi Ann. Always appreciated, Richard.

Although these houses are beautiful, they are not the monstrous, excessive mansions that one might expect a huge star to live in today.

I have a few of these that are different (Lou Costello, Frederic March, Mickey Rooney), but I'm sure there are many more.

Wonder how many of these tasteful homes still survive?

Thanks everyone for letting me know which ones you have. I am making a list, so keep 'em coming.

MAJOR: I have 2 different Mickey Rooney's - one where he is about 12 to 14 years old and another when he was about 20 something. I love the Mick! Andy Hardy Rules!

These are great! I was wondering the same thing as Daveland....how many of these homes still exist? Some of the, have probably been torn down or converted into McMansions.

I know that Bob Hope's house is still there. And his wife Dolores still lives in it.
