Walk Old Hollywood - The Double Indemnity House

After watching Double Indemnity, I was inspired to find that amazing Dietrichson house where Barbara Stanwyck's character, Phyllis, lives.  In the film it's described as being in Los Feliz, but it's actually in Hollywood.

The house still appears exactly the way it does in the movie.  It's a lovely walk through the Hollywood Hills above Franklin Avenue, and I definitely recommend walking...the streets are winding and parking non-existent.  And the view is much nicer on foot!

As it turns out, there really is honeysuckle growing in the neighborhood!
