Manny P. here…

   The house used as the home of psychotic killer Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs is up for sale. The owners are asking $300,000 for the home, which also features an in-ground pool and a vintage caboose as a pool house.

   The Silence of the Lambs won five Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay. Anthony Hopkins played Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a crazed, cannibalistic psychiatrist whose macabre clues help Clarice Starling, the rookie FBI agent played by Jodie Foster, track down and kill Buffalo Bill in his home. By the way, the basement dungeon where the serial fiend kept one would-be victim, and where he eventually met his demise, doesn’t exist. Those scenes were shot on a sound stage

   The real estate agent is hopeful the 1910 home’s spooky pedigree will attract rather than repel buyers. You can celebrate your purchase of this lovely four-bedroom Victorian with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.  OUCH!


3300Title   Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History has surpassed 3300 books sold; a milestone. My initial paperback  exceeds all projected sales, and purchases keep climbing. The La La Land souvenir shop along Hollywood Blvd., and across the street from the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, is the exact reason for my latest accomplishment.

   My first book will soon go into its Third Print edition, which is another reason to celebrate.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
