Brentwood Home

worship.jpg

Above: Joan turning her back to the camera? Never! This picture was pulled and not used in an article about the couple and their new home and marriage together.

I am sure Joan thought better than to show a picture of her worshiping the bust of Douglas Fairbanks Jr.



Below are photos of the interior and the exterior of the Brentwood home Joan lived at for 26 years. It survived three marriages, four children and several interior decorating makeovers. Click on the photos below to see them at a larger scale. Enjoy your stroll through the photos of Joan's Brentwood years.
