In 1948 Dean and Jerry Lewis packed up their broods and left New York City for the film capitol of the world, Hollywood, California. The team of Lewis and Martin may not have lasted, but Dean became one of the busiest and most beloved film stars of all time, which is something one could never say about Jerry.

Bob Siler grew up in Burbank, not far from Universal Studios and Warner Brothers where they made his favorite monster movies. A long-time fan of Westerns, he still has a hard time believing that the great John Wayne could die. Bob has created many lists detailing where the famous and infamous lived, are buried, and the cars they drove. He has recently completed this list of Western Stars homes after many years. Burbank Bob now resides in Portland, Oregon.

Yes, I've been waiting for this post will all the photos.

I've visited the Los Angeles area several times (in-laws there) and saw both the Mountain Drive and Cope de Oro homes. The others? I haven't seen them -- or even photos of them.

Great, great info here, DMP!
