Sirocco on Mulholland Drive

27 May

On Thanksgiving Weekend last year, I was up on Mulholland surveying the situation, trying to get a fix on the exact layout of Mulholland Farm. While doing so, I was greatly surprised to see a home called “Sirocco” only walking distance east of Errol’s old spot!

Naturally, I did take a photo of the Spanish tile “Sirocco” sign, but have lost the cell phone I had that shot saved on! Fortunately, though, I did write down the address. It’s @ 7621,about only 2000-ft from 7740, Errol’s address, on the opposite (north) side of Mulholland Drive.

Here’s the famous film noir star who lived there at “Sirocco” during Errol’s day – Dan Duryea (who I most remember from Pride of the Yankees & Wagon Train, I believe. But, IMO, it’s highly unlikely Dan Duryea would have named hs estate Sirocco. So, who did!!!???!!! Anyone in Flynnlandia know!?!…

    Here’s the Film Noir Family man doing some landscaping up by Errol’s Farm, but who (subsequently) named it Sirocco?!?:
