Children's wing! rooll" These are typical offei-s in Ihc real esliiLc sections of the movie trade papers, which advertise "star's homes" at prices up to J550.000. The cas- ual reader might suspect a mass exodus of film stars, It's not that bad. Nearly ev- ery grand house in Beverly Hills has had a star owner or tenant during its history, and real cslalc salesmen under- stand, the value of being able lo say, "Lana Turner slept here." But tlic truth is lhat fewer and iewer stars are making their homes in the high-rent district of Bel Air and He'- vcvly Hills. Some can no longer afford such houses. Others simply find the film colony life no longer to Ihcir liking. LIVES IN FLORIDA Richard Boone, a Los Ange- les native, sold his Bel Air house eight years ago and moved to Hawaii. Now he is a resident ol SI. Auguslinc, Fla. He comes here only for his NBC mini-scries, Ilec Ramsey, and other acting as- sign menls. "I don't like Southern Cali- he says. "I like to get away from Hollywood and acquire a fresh approach." Hohert Redlord lives near Prove, Utah, at a winter re- sort he is developing. Like Richard Boone, Mickey Iloo- ney chooses to make his home in p'lorida. Loretta and Dick Vaji Dyke reside in Arizona, and Van Dyke perfoi-mod his television scries at a etudin near Phoenix. When not working in a film, Marlon Brando lives in Tahiti, where he plans to develop an Island as a resort and laboratory to develop food sources. Raymond Burr spends lus time away from Ironside at his now on a Fiji island. Frank Sinatra turned his back on the Los Angeles smog to retire in Palm Springs, where Red Skclton, Phil Harris and olher stars have permanent homes.
