This house was designed by Lloyd Wright for Louis Samuel, who went from meeting Ramon Novarro in dance class to becoming the star’s personal assistant and then manager. On finding Samuel was embezzling from him Novarro didn’t press charges, but did take possession of this beautiful home.

A beautiful house I used to walk by every time I had an out of town guest, as I recall the climb is rather steep to get there from Beachwood through Bronson Canyon, and at one point I remember a particular friend smacking my arm because of the effort, but reaching the house she saw it was well worth it 😉
