What on earth has this to do with Knut Hamsun?
Well, as Mansion Global writes, the house in
spanish hacienda-style had belonged to the
actress Lupita Tovar and her agent/husband Paul
Kohner. To raise money to buy the mansion Kohner
had to sell the rights to Hamsun's Victoria.
Luckily it was later possible to re-acquire these
rights and Kohner's son could co-produce the Victoria
film from 2013. An interesting point is also that
the house was a regular haven for european
migrants in Los Angeles at that time.
