Filming[edit] 1950's Movie 711 Ocean Drive with Edmond O'Brien, it was the back drop of syndicate meeting. between 01:05:00 - 01:07:25

Celebrity guests[edit] The hotel retained its glamor through the 1950s. Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio often met in the hotel bar. Elvis Presley stayed at the hotel (Room 1016) while making his first film, Love Me Tender (1956).[2] For many years, it was the residence of actor William Frawley. Laurel and Hardy stayed in room 205. Graham Nash lived there in 1968.

Media[edit] Postcard circa 1940s On December 1, 1954, a camera crew from the NBC program "This is Your Life" surprised retired comedy legends Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy in room 205 of the hotel. The duo was relaxing there with a couple of friends who were in on the gag. While both comedians were polite throughout the show, Stan Laurel was apparently privately somewhat displeased to be put on television without his consent or prior notice.[5]

Events[edit] In 1962 celebrated Hollywood costume designer Irene Lentz, believed to be despondent over Gary Cooper's death, committed suicide by jumping from her 11th floor room window. On March 3, 1966, veteran character actor William Frawley was strolling down Hollywood Boulevard after seeing a film when he suffered a major heart attack. His nurse dragged him to the hotel where he died in the lobby. Contrary to popular belief, Frawley did not live in the hotel at the time. Although Frawley had spent nearly 30 years living in a suite upstairs, he had moved to the nearby El Royale Apartments several months before. Also contrary to popular belief, Rudolf Valentino was not a regular at the bar, as the hotel opened after his death in 1926.

Retirement Apartments[edit] By the late 1960s, the neighborhood had deteriorated, and the hotel became a residence primarily for drug addicts and prostitutes. In 1970, a renovation project converted the hotel into housing for senior citizens; it continues in this capacity today. In 1999, a plaque honoring Griffith was placed in the lobby.
