7321 Woodrow Wilson Drive – A Golden Hollywood Hideaway

7321 Woodrow Wilson Pool

Circa 1950, the very year that brought us Bette Davis in All about Eve, and the sizzling Sunset Boulevard with William Holden as an unsuccessful screenwriter and Gloria Swanson playing a faded silent film star. Old Hollywood lingers in this English Country revival. A thorough redoux remastered its intended grandeur. This is Woodrow Wilson Drive, 7321 to be precise.
