Format: Paperback
Jack Oakie's Oakridge is full of pics and anecdotes of the great home currently at the corner of Devonshire and Reseda blvd. in Northridge, Ca. The 11 acres the property has been whittled down to is soon to be developed,so you better go see it NOW. Oakie's widow donated the home and property to USC before she died, with the understanding it would remain. Well, she's been gone about 4 years now, and the ungrateful jerks at USC have sold it to developers, who 'claim' (read 'lying through their teeth') the house will PERHAPS remain as a 'community center'. A community center for 11 homes to be built around?? Come on! This book is a wonderful reminder of how life could be before Starbuck's, Chevy dealers and mini malls surrounded the area. I myself have hopped the fence (book in hand) and matched shots w/ the book. The house was originally built in '35 for Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Taylor, and was known as MARWYCK RANCH, after the horse breeding business Stanwyck had with her then manager, ZEPPO MARX. Originally over 100 acres, the house now sits forlornly overlooking the valley. See it before it's gone!
