An Interior View

     Maven has always had a problem watching this house in the prologue.  Her father was a top-notch contracter so she noticed that the Ennis-Brown exterior didn't match the interiors shown in the movie.

The Driveway

     This is the driveway shown in the film from the Franklyn Lloyd Wright house.
     It was build in 1924 for Charles and Mabel  but has had extensive structural problems because of earthquakes and weather.
     The repair bill seems to have gone up to $10,000,000 since the last time Maven checked within the last two years.
