This is NOT an April fools day story. It’s true.
It’s clearly visible On Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood/Beverly Hills border there lies a Magnificent Hotel. It’s most famous for people like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton checking in for a week and eating and drinking and ____________themselves silly or it’s “Polo Lounge,” where you used to see superagent and movie star or producer power brokering and the packaging of talent. The hotel also has a hell of a cobb salad. Total landmark. The most elegant Spanish architechture I’ve ever seen. At one point, I think durng the 80’s it fell into massive disrepair and the Sultan of Brunei bought it. A few years ago, in response to human rights issues with the Sultan and his cronies, all of Hollywood just stopped going there. It made all the magazines but of course it changed nothing in Brunei. But now, the stars, agents, they are going back there. I read that Warren Beatty was there and he’d just shot a new movie. I thought he was under a rock somewhere and retired, like Jack Nicholson is rumored to be.
