And now some noir...

Snowden House at 5121 Franklin Ave. in Los Feliz. Originally designed and built by Lloyd Wright (son of Frank Lloyd Wright) for John Snowden in 1926. Nicknamed by residents of Los Feliz as "The Jaws House", this architectural marvel has seen its share of noir.

In both his books "Black Dahlia Avenger" and "Most Evil", author Steve Hodel a retired LAPD Detective, maintains that his father Dr. George Hodel tortured, killed and dissected Elizabeth Short in this house. Dr. Hodel owned the house from 1945-51.

In "Most Evil", Steve Hodel also draws startling connections between his father and many other unsolved murders of women in 1940's Los Angeles. It's quite the read!
