Roosevelt Hotel Extremely historic place for Hollywood buffs. Spanish Revival style. Opened in 1929 with owners including Louis B. Meyer, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford. The first academy awards were held here in 1928 or 1929 (then called the "Merit Awards") in the "Blossom Room". The set for the TV show "This is Your Life" was located here. The Cinegrill was a famous 1940s nightclub still existing inside. Marilyn Monroe used to stay here and her ghost is said to still haunt the halls (hey - it helps business). Reasonable rates, but rooms facing Hollywood Blvd may be a bit noisier. You can see the hotel in the films Beverly Hills Cop II and Charlie's Angels 2.

Petticoat Junction theme Petticoat Junction had one of the most recognizable TV themes ever. This is the opening from the first season (1963-64). Petticoat Junction enjoyed its best ratings during that first season and was a staple of the CBS lineup. The show suffered greatly after Bea Benaderet died in 1968 and last aired in September 1970. The black-and-white shows from the first two seasons were never put into syndication. I would have stayed at the Shady Rest Hotel just for the scenery. The scenery's names were Billie Jo, Bobby Jo and Betty Jo.

The Stanley Hotel Look familiar? . . the Stanley Hotel in Colorado reports several spirits, but the most notable are those of the original owner, F.O. Stanley and his wife, Flora. She used to entertain guests by playing the piano and staff report hearing music from that room or the piano keys moving even when the music stops as they enter. When horror writer Stephen King stayed in room 217 he was inspired to write The Shining. . . redrum!!!!

Fatty Arbuckle Scandal 1921 One of the most tragic figures in movie history was Roscoe (Fatty) Arbuckle. Arbuckle was among the most popular actors in silent comedies when his career abruptly ended in scandal. He was accused of sexually assaulting small-time actress Virginia Rappe at a party at a San Francisco hotel on Labor Day 1921. Rappe died shortly thereafter of a ruptured bladder, presumably caused by Arbuckle forcing himself on her. There was also an apocryphal story of Rappe being raped with a champagne or a cola bottle. A post-mortem on Rappe's body found no signs of sexual assault whatsoever. Rappe was hardly the virginal victim the popular press portrayed her to be. She had recently undergone one of her several illegal abortions. Rappe was also suffering from a chronic illness that was exacerbated by her taste for poor-quality Prohibition booze. Based solely on malicious gossip, Arbuckle was tried three times for manslaughter and spent nearly $700,000 on legal fees. The first two trials resulted in hung juries. (The first trial ended with the jury voting 10-2 in favor of acquittal. The second one, in which Arbuckle's lawyer advised him not to take the stand, was 9-3 in favor of conviction.) One juror from the first trial later noted that a fellow female juror, a radical feminist, announced that she had no intention of considering the evidence or looking at the transcipt of the testimoney because she had an unassailable preconceived notion of Arbuckle's guilt. At the third trial, the jury deliberated for just six minutes before returning with a unanimous not guilty verict. The jury also insisted that a formal apology to Arbuckle be read into the official transcript of the trial. Most film history buffs believe Arbuckle was innocent and was the victim of malicious prosecution. Nevertheless his acting career pretty much ended because of the adverse publicity. Despite the acquittal, film distributors refused to carry Arbuckle comedies. He directed films under an assumed name and was just beginning to make an acting comeback when died of heart failure in 1933 at age 46.

The Platters Great Pretender In 1955, The Great Pretender, with lyrics written in the washroom of the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, exceeded the success of the Platter's debut in 1953. It became their first national #1 hit. The Great Pretender was also the act's biggest R&B hit, with an eleven-week run atop the charts.

Ambrose Small Case 1919 One of the most intriguing missing persons cases is that of Toronto theatre magnate Ambrose J. Small. Small was last seen alive on December 2, 1919 after selling his theatre chain for $1 million--a fantastic sum in those days. He lunched with his wife Theresa at the King Edward Hotel, gave her the check to deposit in their bank account, bought some newspapers from a young street vendor--and vanished forever. Small's disappearance was not reported to the police by his wife for nearly two weeks, leading to speculation that she was involved. Theresa was well known in Toronto for her charitable deeds and was used to Ambrose vanishing without warning for extended periods while away on gambling binges. To spare Theresa embarrassment, the Toronto Police did not formally announce Small was missing until his disappearance was reported in the Toronto Star in January 1920. Small had made his fortune in the theatre business staging low-brow plays often with risque themes. After his disappearance it was discovered that Small had a secret 'love nest' above his Grand Opera House in Toronto where he often 'entertained' chorus girls. Not long after Small vanished, his bookkeeper John Doughty vanished too with $105,000 in bonds taken from Small's safe deposit box. Doughty was later found in Oregon and arrested for theft. He was given a five-year prison sentence. Despite international headlines and a $50,000 reward, no trace of Small was ever found. An elderly Grand Opera House employee claimed to have overheard a violent argument between Small and Doughty on the afternoon Small vanished. The case was officially closed by Toronto police in 1960. Modern investigators recently found a memo written by an investigating officer in 1936, a year after Theresa died. The memo stated there was ample evidence that Ambrose Small had been murdered and that both Theresa Small and John Doughty were guilty of the crime--indicating that the Toronto Police were somehow involved in a major cover-up. The ghost of Ambrose Small is said to haunt one of his old theatres in London, Ontario.
