I am a European Journalist who has been covering Hollywood for over 30 years. I fell in love with LA and have made it my glorious home. My life and privilege has been to interview and learn from every major Hollywood talent: their dreams, ups and downs, successes and failures...the reality of Hollywood. I have been visited by Catherine Zeta-Jones to Arnold Schwarzenegger to Kurt Russell just to name a few. My property has been used for fashion shoots and as movie locations. To me Los Angeles means sunshine, blue wide-open sky, diversity of people, natural wonders, individuality, unimaginable cuisine and 'sky's the limit' attitude. What I love about my property is the location; from here you can quickly be anywhere the action is in minutes...or just enjoying a serene day on top of the world.

Why Frances chose Hollywood
As soon as I came to Los Angeles my dream was to live on Mulholland Drive, which is for me as historic as a cathedral would be in a town in Europe. MULHOLLAND DRIVE is a painting by David Hockney. KING OF THE MOUNTAIN was a fictional movie with Dennis Hopper, Harry Hamlin and Dan Haggerty loosely based on actual Mulholland Drive racers. The films MULHOLLAND DRIVE and MULHOLLAND FALLS were named after the road. Video games GRAND THEFT AUTO and MIDNIGHT CLUB features Mulholland Drive. R.E.M.'s song ELECTROLITE was inspired by Mulholland Drive and is mentioned. TOM PETTY refers to 'glide down over Mulholland' in the hit song 'FREE FALLIN'. In LOVE AND BASKETBALL Mulholland Drive is referred to during the scene in which Q and Monica meet up outside of her bedroom after the Spring Dance. It marks the street as a dead end where couples go for privacy.
