Estate in Palm springs..Rena.ed it Bob hope drive
The street estate on,.that is
His house was on a hill overlooking the desert. No beach in PS.
Man-made beach..says beach at his estate..not his estate "on a beach"
My grandparents were his he and his wife, I think name was Dorothy, anyway ..their neighbors…I spent many winter school breaks there(70's)
No nudity in front of us BTW lol
Cool Tricia. No good guesses. I keep thinking Charlton but no tv and he woulda blown those damn hippies away. Gotta get rid of them before they start a drum circle.
@sherry..hahahha..Heston woulda beeness kind than hope for sure!
take your Drum circling,poetry reciting,grass smoking,Peter Paul &maary/CSN listenin assets up outta here!
*been less kind
I did this with a group of friends in Marin after Burning Man. It was fun and hilarious, and we didn't get caught. But we did get the playa off!
Frosty nailed it. My guess was going to be Moe Howard.
John Forsythe? Ricardo Montalban?
Niice@rivenI have family in mill valley/TiburonWanted to move there but wound up here…
Fred MacMurray is a great guess. Big film roles, 12 years in a succesful sitcom after his film career, and he was a conservative republican. I really should watch Double Indemnity again…
I love hippies!!
Is a beach 'nude' if you're the only one on it? Kind of similar to the tree falling in the forest question.
Trica said..take your Drum circling,poetry reciting,grass smoking,Peter Paul &maary/CSN listenin assets up outta here!'
I can hear him now!
Tricia, Riven, where are you? I'm in SF area…
California beaches are public property/access so this would have to be somewhere other than Cali.
Damn hippies. You'd close down your own private nude beach too if you found a bunch of hippies bonking away all over it. Bleh.
@sherry..I'm on Miami..but have famikyrbin Marin and been going to cali since birth..loved in LA a while as wellIdove to live in San Raphael /sausilito if posts..but we here:(
@Tricia I am still kicking myself for leaving the Bay Area and moving to LA. Mount Tamalpais is one of my favorite places to hike. Mount Diablo is pretty awesome too, when it's not too hot and not during spider season lol.
@ riven…my cuzins graduated from mtvtamalpis HS…I love bolinas..Love that locals keep taking down directional s and town post…dem be hilliets..real ones and proud ones:))
It was Fred MacMurray. But he did not close it down. His family did after he died. I read this recently somewhere else but I can't remember. Might have been datalounge.
And it's getting close to spider season. There was a report on the news just last night. I love that sorta thang though.
cape cod and nantucket has private deeded beachfront houses
Donna summer nights/Fred macmurray from the neo plexus website? That site makes Perez Hilton and media mass look like the Wall Street journal
http://articles.latimes.com/2011/oct/01/home/la-hm-lost-la-fred-macmurray-20111001This article discusses how mr. Macmurray s house in Brentwood was decidedly simple, as was he, and his home was anti mofdern anything….I doubt he built a man made beach there
And the only other home fred macmurray had was in Russian river valley , northern CA..a cattle ranch…not very beach/resort like
And the one who got him involved in conservative politics and campaigning for Richard Nixon, was none other than…bob hope
Steven Seagal, just to be different. @Tricia – I live near there!
I am a conservative hippie. KMA
@bella that's awesome!!!@marybel…me too..me too..just in ourbdogboarkmand called my dogs name(I have a couple) but one is named Crosby…and a woman turned to me and was like..no way..that name is awesome…is it after..I said yessss David..Not bing…
Though I appreciate bing Crosby and his legacy and music…
I'm a hippie chick in material world/eg..square peg:(
@bella…wait bolinas or Russian river..they are both beautiful
His LA home was in Toluca Lake, which has an actual lake.
@clark…even better…But his Palm Springs home was very…well..modern and it had all the resort trappings..(was young but remember), Toluca lake was their secondary home…either way it's Hope……..and his nekkid ass
Tricia S.- you're usually right on target & you always back it up w/your research as w/with this one.& Bob Hope is probably the answer cuz it's pretty well known that he loooved unorthodox sexual situations,while Dorothy slept in another wing upstairs,but…word has it that unlikely candidate Fred MacMurray DID HAVE SOME WILD NEKKED NIGHTS @ his place of leisure(not on the water as you pointed out though).as did John Forsythe,(not A though)My prob is that I thought BOB HOPE only did xmas & war specials& guest appearances' Fred MacMurray
& wouldn't bob Hope be permanent A???
FRED -My Three Sons/…Double Indemnity et al.
Harry Morgan just to be different.
The Hope property adjoins the Cyrus property in Toluca Lake, so not him.
That McMurray guess is excellent, Frosty.
Fred MacMurray's ranch on the Russian River, near Wohler Bridge. Everyone in the area knows about it.
Add me to the Fred MacMurray bandwagon. Very very smart business man who invested early in So Cal real estate. He'd have the estate(s) for this.
@rolo..love your insights always, by the way.., and if it's macmurray..ok..but he is a B- to mr hopes A..based on catalogue of work…amNd I was on his property , as a young gal and distinctly remember it….if someone's been to fred macs place /den of antiquity and can discuss it..please do….otherwise, it's heresay
I could never stand bob hope. His jokes were so lame and unfunny. He portrayed himself as a family man, yet he screwed around, was greedy and loved and told dirty jokes. I mean, grow up already. I never laughed at his jokes, not one time. He was passe in his own time.
