This estate, located at 7430 Pyramid Place, was built by actress Ann Harding and Harry Bannister. Years later, the home was owned by Rudy Vallee and, lastly, Arsenio Hall, who had it demolished; it is now vacant land.
Photograph caption dated March 29, 1932 reads, "Here is the home of Miss [Ann] Harding and [Harry] Bannister, a magnificent 'mansion of dreams' atop a hill. They planned it for their lasting happiness, but the dreams were broken by a problem of fame." The couple divorced in 1932 after Harding's career began to outshine her husband's.
