According to the trusty Movieland Directory, this gated 1930s villa in the Hollywood Hills was once home to spicy 1940s singer/movie star Dorothy Lamour (it's currently the home of Pauly Shore's mother/Comedy Store owner Mitzi Shore). Per the description, the 5,448-square-foot residence is now available for the first time in over forty years and "waiting to be fully restored/rebuilt." The listing also describes the house as "loaded with character and charm," which only makes the lack of interior photos all the more frustrating. Here's hoping the .4-acre property, now asking $5.8 million, finds a preservation-minded buyer.
