GLAMOUROUS: King Gillette Ranch, which is located just off Mulholland Drive, used to belong to MGM's head honcho Clarence Brown (it's owned by the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority now). The studio used to film movies here then and it's still a popular place to film now, but you can enjoy the natural beauty and old Hollywood history in person on a walking tour today.
