I saw this screen cap today of a 1961 episode of ROUTE 66. That's George Maharis and Martin Milner in the car at center.

Perry Mason house

The home pictured on page 2446 is actually in the Biltmore Estates area of Phoenix, Arizona. I was unable to get a Google street view as it's a gated community these days. It's located on Biltmore Estate Drive just south of E. Thunderbird Trail, backing up to the golf course.

You must mean GW's house from Perry Mason. It appears to be 36 Biltmore Estates, Phoenix, AZ. The property websites give a build date of 1952 (and one claims there's parking for 37 cars!).


Google Maps

There are 38 interior/exterior photos at www.redfin.com.

Here are the original screengrabs for comparison:

That's great, thanks for finding it Peeweehal and Hoss. Well, so it's only a pretend L.A. house. I wonder how the producers came up with something in Phoenix to use as an establishing shot for an LA location?

PS Does anyone else remember when Google satellite views didn't look like cartoons?

Like the ones that Bing Maps still uses (below)? I sure do. Google's ability to swing around to virtually any angle in 3D is great, but I wish that the sharp 45 degree photographs were still an option.

Racing Go Karts in Burbank!

'Mystery' Go Kart Track, Burbank California


ebay

"Lona Andre, far right."

I don't know who Lona is... but the lovely lady in the middle certainly looks like Toby Wing.


REVERSE


Does anyone know of a go-kart track located in Burbank? [back in the 1930s]






Let's see those racing starlets up close.


So what do you think the horizontal pipe behind the grill-work is for? If it's for exhaust wouldn't it go right in the driver's face?

That house has been used in a couple of movies, and I vaguely remember it being used in an episode of Route 66. It's possible they had access to stock footage from a different production company.

I don't know who Lona is...
Lona Andre was one of many who never quite made it past "Featured Player" status in Hollywood.



She had brief appearances in some notable films early in her career, including Paramount's all-star comedy International House (1933), where she actually received on-screen billing in the opening credits. Note the highfalutin accent over the e in her name.



Sadly, the musical number in which she danced, "She Was a China Tea-cup and He Was Just a Mug," is chiefly memorable for her screen partner Sterling Holloway. (He, of course, went on to become the voice of Winnie-the-Pooh many years later.)



Her starring roles were in instantly forgettable movies such as The Timid Young Man (1935), possibly Buster Keaton's worst short film.



There were also starring roles in a few sub-B-movie westerns and melodramas.

Her career really hit the skids in the late thirties when she was the leading lady in exploitation films like Slaves in Bondage (1937) and Race Suicide (1938).





Her post-Hollywood career as a businesswoman was reportedly much more successful. (I haven't been able to discover exactly what business she was in.)

As for the go-kart track...I haven't a clue.

Sorry, this wasn't very helpful. I'll shut up now.

If Lona had a successful career in real estate, no one seems to have been writing about it. In 1942, she was working in an airplane factory, it seems, when she was married for a second time, to a coworker. Anyway, a couple of items about her...it's the second one I was especially interested in since it's about her brush with "the world's richest Indian"--Jackson Barnett--during the "Battle of Wilshire" or, more accurately, getting the door of 644 S Rossmore slammed in her face during a publicity stunt. (Hot dog vendors figured into the scene.) She was in the company of no less than Senator William Gibbs McAdoo and Superior Court Judge Charles S. Crail, who were all spurned by Mr. Barnett's crazy protector and chief leech (his wife Anna) along with club ladies ("a bunch of old hags") while trying to help.



LAT Nov 15, 1932



LAT Oct 29, 1938



I'm sure we've read about Jackson Barnett on NLA before, but I couldn't find anything. Anyway, the full story is here:

Here's a photo I found at www.vintag.es in an article called 'New Year on the Beach – 12 Interesting Vintage Photos of Women Greeting New Year in Swimsuits in the 1930s'. Other sources caption it "Toby Wing, Frances Drake, Ida Lupino, and Lona Andre, 1934". If the numbering is sequential, then this is only 30 after the Burbank shot above, so we might have a more accurate date.
