End of the line for Mrs. High-and-Mighty de Lorca

I just noticed that Paul Henreid directed Dead Ringer. "Oh, Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars." ...
Oh yes, I do remember Edie's, over on Figueroa and Temple, old de Lorca territory, apparently. Hehe I love "Dead Ringer." And "Now, Voyager"!

Funny you should bring up "Dead Ringer," after all, it was filmed at the Doheny Mansion, brought up some posts back. It's been years since I've been to the grounds, which I believe are still open to the public, I think it's officially a City of Beverly Hills park. I wish the mansion were open for tours; instead, I just peeked through the windows...
