The four-bedroom home that Cary Grant shared for many years with his “roommate” Randolph Scott is for sale at 2177 W. Live Oak Drive in the Los Feliz neighborhood of L.A. Grant also shared it with his first wife Virginia Cherrill. When she moved in, Scott was given the boot.
The house was dubbed “Bachelor Hall” after rampant rumors that Scott and Grant were involved caused red flags to go up at the studio. From Wikipedia:
“Biographers disagree on whether Grant was bisexual. While Marc Elliot, Charles Higham and Roy Moseley consider Grant to have been bisexual, with Higham and Moseley claiming that Grant and Scott were seen kissing in a public carpark outside a social function both were attending in the 1960s, Graham McCann dismisses the claims as rumors. In his book, Hollywood Gays, Boze Hadleigh cites an interview with gay director George Cukor who said about the alleged homosexual relationship between Scott and Grant: ‘Oh, Cary won’t talk about it. At most, he’ll say they did some wonderful pictures together. But Randolph will admit it – to a friend.'”
They certainly look very cozy in the photo above. In any case, those of you wishing to bask by Grant’s old pool should have a little cash to shell out. The asking price is a cool $3,995,000.
