The Movie Colony, Hollywood’s Golden Era
With the luxurious El Mirador as its centerpiece, the Movie Colony is a tranquil neighborhood. Home to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars such as Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore, Van Johnson, Tony Curtis, and Gloria Swanson. The Movie Colony has a great history. One of the celebrity estates in the Movie Colony was called the Desert Royal Palace because so many Europeans with royal titles and Hollywood elite lived there. The Movie Colony’s biggest attraction is Frank Sinatra’s first desert home known as the Twin Palms. Designed by E. Stewart Williams in 1947 for Frank Sinatra and his first wife, Nancy Barbato, the Twin Palms Estate boasts both mid-century style luxury and historical significance with modern amenities. Memorabilia can be seen throughout the home in this preserved architectural residence that was once Frank Sinatra’s desert retreat from Hollywood. With so much Hollywood history, this area is unique!
