Mr S and I went to see the fabulous film UP in Culver city, which is also the birth place of our great friend Jeff. (Jeff is a film composer, I’ve blogged about him before and you can listen to his music at http://www.jeffrona.com/index.php ).
He pointed out to us this quirky, angular hotel, which is where the Munchkins were put up during the filming of The Wizard of Oz. The story is that at first the little people playing the Munchkins were promised all kinds of riches and bonuses, but when this didn’t happen, they started to live it up in the hotel. There was all kind of Munchkin drunkenness and debauchery.
We’ve been having a really L.A. Sunday. Went to the Polo lounge for brunch. Rather fabulous but no celebs. Then, I wasn’t wearing my glasses. The gold taps in the loo were rather amazing and exactly what you’d hope for in a bright pink Beverely Hills hotel.
