Harlow House is a Bavarian-style mansion with wooden gutter spouts that are life-size carvings of various silent film stars like Pickford and Valentino. It was formerly owned by actress Jean Harlow and her MGM producer husband Paul Bern. The home is said to have been cursed when Bern committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. After this, two people drowned in the pool, and subsequent owners have had bad luck as well. Jay Sebring, who was romantically attached to actress Sharon Tate, was one of the later owners. Reports say Sharon saw an apparition of Paul Bern and another of a phantom murder scene when staying alone one night in the mansion. Some say the murder scene was the ghost trying to warn her about her later murder at the hands of Charles Manson.
