Does anyone have any information about this house and where it might be located. I am fascinated with this (and other types of progressive, modern) architecture, and I'd love to try and look it up on Live Maps.

Thanks a lot in advance.


I found this at another site

Finally, the circular Hollywood house with the pool, where Paul's cop buddies have set up a temporary police HQ (and which they mention is "the house Eddie Fisher built for Elizabeth Taylor"), was at 1261 Angelo Drive, in Beverly Hills. I say "was", because Ryan Geftman-Gold emailed me to say that the house no longer exists - in fact, he watched it being torn down, around 2001, after he and the Modern Committee of the L.A. Conservancy had tried to save the home

Sure the house exists? Not a computer enhancement of an existing (or non-existing) building? And maybe the story about it (e.g., Eddie Fisher) wasn't true? I saw the F&F film set in Brazil, and it had a lot of things that existed only in the film, largely on computers (e.g., a high speed train, a deep canyon traversed by the imaginary train).

The house existed. It was designed by the architect David Fowler for his mother. Fowler's daughter Lynn was one of my college roommates, and that was the home she returned to for summers and holidays after her family moved out of California. I visited the house a few times and spent a weekend there once. It was a very special place, and I'm sad to know it is gone.

Default This was My Great Grandmothers House

I was sitting at home and the movie Fast and Furious happen to come on. My seven year old daughter was watching the film with me and I told her the story. The first time watching this was in a movie theater with Friends in 2001 and no one believing I grew up in this house. Well I grew up in Jamul, Ca and this was my Father's Grandmothers house that he spent much of his childhood in. Seeing the brigde over the pool it immediatley reminded me of all the fun times my Brother and I had. With Great Grandma Carol watching us swimming in the beatiful pool. My Father would joke to her about jumping off the roof into the pool as a boy, she would laugh and smile. The bathroom was hidden in the wall and with a press of your hand along the wall would enter you into a beautiful powder room and bathroom. Her Asian cooks and house keepers were at our service and were always in the kitchen making magic. Easter time we would have Easter Brunch at the Beverly Hills Golf Club. We would dress in our finest and then all the family and kids would have a giant Easter Egg hunt. It was a lovely time in my life and I was so sad when I heard that Grandma Carol Davis passed and also the house was sold by the family to the movies. I Loved her and I loved the times we spent together. In Loving Memory. K.Fowler
