A Brief History of the Hollywood Bowl in Postcards

Hollywood Bowl is the largest natural amphitheatre in the country and a favorite evening destination for Angelenos and visitors alike. Every Summer I go as often as I can. There’s something magical about the venue – the hillside setting, the way the music travels from the stage’s shell up to and around the canyon, and, of course, the fresh open air under the stars. As their summer season ends, I decided to take a look into the Bowl’s almost one hundred year history.

Inside Marilyn Monroe’s Dreamy Final Home in Brentwood

It was the first and last home legendary Hollywood bombshell Marilyn Monroe ever owned. 12305 Fifth Helena Drive in Brentwood is a dreamy Spanish hacienda that still stands today. According to Monroe biographers, Marilyn was urged by her psychologist to “put down roots” after three failed marriages to James Dougherty, Joe DiMaggio, and Arthur Miller. It is rumored she fell in love with the garden and would often spend calming afternoons there with her poodle. She bought the home in 1962 for $75,000. It last sold in 2012 for $5.1 million.

Update Friday, April 21 – Marilyn’s final home in Brentwood has returned to the market. Asking price is $6,900,000.
