Plan your stay in Palm Springs at the historic Spanish estate of Casa de Monte Vista in the Old Las Palmas.
The Hollywood movie industry elite flocked to play in Palm Springs.
They could still honor their contract stipulations to remain “within two hours of the studio.” More importantly, the desert oasis offered them privacy from the watchful eyes of their studios and the press. During the early years of the 20s and 30s, studios invested a considerable amount of money in helping locate, groom, and establish potential stars. Therefore, they kept a tight rein on their stars’ images. These actors and actresses had little control over their careers, and their futures were at the mercy of the studio that signed them. Movie stars’ contracts even included what was known as a “morality clause .”Scandals caused studios to break an agreement with the star. Hollywood stars’ solution was the little-known and sparsely populated Palm Springs. Many began to purchase second homes in this remote yet easily accessible desert community. They could play, relax, and frolic in relative isolation away from the public eye.
