The beach photo with boats looks like the area just north of the Santa Monica pier. A lot of those houses have been replaced with modern ones but in the background, there was a breakwater/pier where small boats docked. You can still see the remnants at low tide.

Sandbar/breakwater in the 1940s



We're closer to the Santa Monica Pier than I initially thought.

Martin Pal, the photographs of Wesley & Johnny's visit to Zanuck's beach house are AMAZING!

BELOW: The red arrow points to the Zanuck home. The house at far right is visible in the photograph of Wesley and Johnny [shown above]


GSV I'm zoomed in from the beach walk so it's a bit blurry.





And an aerial view.

Zanuck house is outlined in Red.

And the obligatory view from PCH.
