Title supplied by cataloger. Exterior view of Russian actress Alla Nazimova's mansion, known as "The Garden of Alla," at 8080 Sunset Boulevard in what is now West Hollywood. Eventually she built a complex of 25 villas around the mansion in 1927 and changed the complex name to "Garden of Allah." This name change from "Alla" to "Allah" was chosen to honor both Nazimov's name and Robert S. Hichens' novel "Garden of Allah." The villa complex, which surrounded the mansion, had the address of 8152 Sunset Boulevard. The Garden of Allah Hotel was a popular destination for figures in literary and film circles during in mid-1930s to the mid-1940s. Demolished in June 1959, it is now the site of a small strip mall.
