Mike’s Murder and Carpe Diem, Mañana
A Private Tour to Mike’s Murder in Santa Monica
Visitors to Los Angeles seek all kinds of sights and destinations that are important to them. Certain celebrities and their homes and hangouts are quite often subjects for our custom private tours of Los Angeles. Film locations always come up, too. What a surprise when we had guests asking about a 30 year old film and wanting to see the neighborhood where it was filmed and we discover that it is now occupied by writers whose books we have enjoyed recently. Mike’s Murder was filmed in 1984 in this Santa Monica house just up from the beach. Debra Winger fans will remember the film. Our guests were impressed to learn that the new book of humorous and thoughtful musings about life by Paul Lyons, Carpe Diem, Mañana, was written here. Also, Hank Rosenfeld resides here and wrote The Wicked Wit of the West, a funny as-told-to-memoir of Marx Brothers screenwriter Irving Brecher. A great location full of great talent. That’s Los Angeles for you.
