Recommendation by Lemi
Columbia Pictures co-founder Harry Cohn once said, “If you must get into trouble, do it at the Chateau Marmont.” Known for being a troublemaker’s haven, the hotel was the answer of studio executives for their pristinely reputed stars to let off steam, supposedly in seclusion. However, stories of borderline scandalous celebrity antics have escaped the chateau’s halls. Here, actor James Dean jumped out off a window while auditioning for “Rebel Without A Cause;” “Scarface” (1932) director Howard Hughes rented a penthouse to spy on bathing ladies by the pool; and comedian John Belushi (“The Blues Brothers,” 1980) overdosed. Walk through Chateau Marmont, and try to resist the temptation to cause a ruckus. Instead, focus on spotting a famous face from today’s Hollywood hotshots. Remember, though, photographs are forbidden!
