2000 De Mille Drive, Los Feliz 90027 from Berlyn Media on Vimeo.


Mrs. DeMille’s office and library opened to the music room. The picture of her husband was taken in 1916, the year they bought the house, when he was 35 and an increasingly active and significant figure in the burgeoning motion picture industry. The photograph on the bookcase is of DeMille’s mother, Beatrice.

Among the memorabilia in DeMille’s office was a Pathé camera that was used to film his first Hollywood feature, The Squaw Man, in 1914. Constance DeMille gave her husband the opium bowl, foreground, to remind him not to drop pipe

 DeMille bought Charlie Chaplin’s house next door to use as an office, screening room and guesthouse. Linked by a conservatory, the houses enclose a garden often used for publicity stills for his films.
