612 N. Crescent Drive, Beverly Hills, CA

1930s low rent femme fatale Natalie Moorhead, she of the marceled hairdos and fashionable slouch, lived here until 1935 with her director husband Alan Crosland. The latter had purchased the mansion for his second wife Elaine Hammerstein (div. 1930), she of the Broadway Hammersteins. Crosland, if nothing else, should be remembered for directing the groundbreaking "part-talkie" The Jazz Singer (1927).
