The Era of Butlers

T magazine's blog visits Robert Evans' Beverly Hills estate, Woodland, where there are memories of Ali McGraw in the pool and of Dustin Hoffman on the tennis court, and wonders if the house isn't "a portrait of an era that’s quickly fading from memory. I spent a lot of time in Los Angeles in the 1980s and lived there in the early ’90s, and I watched as the last vestiges of old Hollywood glamour — the people and the places, including houses — disappeared. On film and in photographs, Woodland still captured that glamour, which was all about a casual chic that looked effortless." [T, image via]
