- Real Name
Great detective work without help from Stu Bailey himself. Too bad they never made that 77 appearance.I was going to say...the episode or the restaurant, but I looked it up:
224 S. Beverly Dr.
Beverly Hills, California
Late 50's. This link has an old column about it dated April 2, 1959:
At the end of the reprint from the L.A. Times blog it said:
(Puccini's, 220 S. Beverly Blvd., had previously been the Harlequin Club and by 1962 was the Tender Loin.)
But the address was 224 S. Beverly Dr. so is the other info correct?
This link has a contract concerning the restaurant:
FRANK SINATRA/PETER LAWFORD SIGNED RESTAURANT CONTRACT.www.hakes.com
In the info for it they seem to think it's a contract to open the place and pay rent of $115 a month, but it clearly states it's an amendment to the lease and this is an additional amount.
This was a souvenir menu that could be mailed like a postcard. It opened up.
I never heard of this place before now.
And, yeah, why did this episode appearance never happen?!
