1950s Traditional in the Hollywood Hills

New, 23 comments

This 1950s traditional in the Hollywood Hills was the home of Tom Mankiewicz, who passed away in July. The son of All About Eve writer/directer Joseph Mankiewicz, he became a successful screenwriter himself, working on numerous James Bond films, the blockbuster Superman franchise, and the TV show Hart to Hart. Though the listing copy describes the 4,300-square-foot property as "bachelor pad and film offices," with its floral-wallpapered bedroom and homey kitchen, it's not exactly the kind of bachelor pad one might expect from the man who scripted Diamonds are Forever. However, at $2.7 million, it's a heck of a lot cheaper than the Elrod House, which is still on the market for $13.89 million.
