I assume that this is a set, and not the actual Glendale house

A little 1945 Mildred Pierce trivia:

Bruce Bennett, who played Bert Pierce in the 1945 version, was originally named Herman
Brix. He won a silver medal for the shot put in the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam. Which
explains his role (as Brix) in 1935's The New Adventures of Tarzan:

Makes you wonder why they didn't name him "Brix Bennett". (Henry Willson wouldn't
have missed that chance.)

During his marriage to Joan Crawford, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. got Brix a screen test. Brix
was 6'3", died in 2007 at nearly 101 years old, and had two children by the names of...
Christina and Christopher. Ring any bells?

How will it stack up?
