George Reeves' Home.

George lived at 1579 Benedict Canyon Drive, in the Beverly Hills area.

The house was bought in the early 1950's for $12,000.
There's a general belief that Toni Mannix bought the house, but his name
was always on the title so she probably helped him with the down payment.

Below is a Google Earth overhead view showing the house and close by...
the location of the 1969 Charles Manson family killings of
Sharon Tate (and her unborn baby boy) and 4 others.
The actual house was torn down in 1994
and a new home, with a new address was built.

Also, farther up the canyon is Easton Drive where Bill and Janet Bliss lived.
Bill was on his way home when he saw George's porch light on and decided to stop for a drink.

At one point, George's good friend, Fred Crane, also lived on Easton Drive.

Also on Easton Drive, in 1932, Paul Bern was shot to death.
For a long time it was one of those sordid mysteries of Hollywood.
Supposedly a suicide, it is now believed by many to be a murder.
Paul, married to actress Jean Harlow, died under mysterious circumstances.
It was suggested that he was impotent and had killed himself.

The general thinking now is that his abandoned
common-law wife had shot him to death.
She killed herself two days later.

Toni Mannix inherited George's home.
It is unclear just how long she retained possession
but author and researcher Jan Henderson has reported
that realtors had trouble getting people to come to 'open houses'.

The house has a reputation of being haunted by George's ghost.

Jan said that way back in 1995, the home was for sale with
an asking price of $695,000, but eventually sold for $495,000.

Here are two very recent street side shots.
The telephone and electric wires are still above ground.
The street had been widened many years ago.

The bedroom over the garage was George's guest room.
His master bedroom and bath were on the back side.

The current owner has seen no ghosts and is very comfortable
in the home that George Reeves once lived in.
