Today we are looking at the legendary Bob Hope modern home in Palm Springs, California. It is pretty famous for it’s architectural wonders. I read that many a dignitary has visited the home. If memory by osmosis serves me right, this Bob Hope modern home was host to many important Hollywood stars and events.

Designed by modern architect, John Lautner, who according to wikipedia, after a fire destroyed the uncompleted original home, did not like Dolores and Bob Hope’s new design ideas and was not as involved in its rebuilding.

Whoosh! It’s a modern wonder home for sure that at first glance looks like a big city tourist building. But no, it was designed to fit in with the landscape of the desert to resemble the shape of a volcano – zillow blog reports.

Love Actually Movie with Hugh Grant

Love Actually Movie with Hugh Grant and the Portugal House

Love Actually movie was filmed in 2003. It’s a British romantic comedy that starts at 5 weeks before Christmas and does a weekly countdown. The movie’s opening and closing scenes are at Heathrow Airport in London. The airport scenes are of real people greeting loved ones. The film crew spent a week at the airport filming and got permission to feature some of the travelers.

The word “actually” was spoken 22 times by different characters in the film according to IMDb trivia.

There are 10 separate love stories told in the movie with a lot of them being intertwined as the movie progresses.

Hugh Grant narrates the Love Actually movie opening at the airport: “Whenever I get gloomy about the state of the world, I think of the arrival gate at Heathgrow Airport. The general consensus is we live in a world full of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. Love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, and old friends. When the plane hit the twin towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from people on board were messages of hate or revenge, they were messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.”

It was for sale and I wanted to share the real house with you, but it’s no longer available. Continue Reading
