Twin Palms

The Palm Springs Historical Society presents a tour of the Movie Colony, a tranquil neighbourhood developed in the 1930s and 40s, which was home to stars such as as Cary Grant, Dinah Shore, Van Johnson, Tony Curtis, Gloria Swanson, and Jack Benny. Frank Sinatra moved into Twin Palms in the 1950s, a home located at the heart of the neighbourhood – bringing the life and soul of the party with him. The tour reveals many more residences of Hollywood’s royalty – one of the estates was even named the Desert Royal Palace because of the propensity of royal guests from Europe and Hollywood stars.
