In Life at the Marmont, Raymond Sarlot and Fred E. Basten gives us a dazzling array of Hollywood stories, city history, and film trivia. The Chateau Marmont was conceived as a home away from home for the Hollywood elite, a place to establish a residence where you wanted to escape the film lots. Marmont was built as one of Los Angeles’s first earthquake-proof buildings. This, as well as its signature posh look, attracted a full range of famous clientele. It served as the playground for the likes of Hedy Lamarr, Clark Gable, Ernest Borgnine, Dorothy Parker, Jean Harlow, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and many more.
