While working on the story of 3677 Wilshire Boulevard--barely seen above in the only picture I've been able to uncover so far--I found out more about a particularly interesting and unsung Hollywood character who has popped up regularly in tales of the avenue's houses. While not exactly Hazel Glab, the wily Irene Hobson--later, she added an "h" and became Irehne--was an actress, beautician, lousy plastic surgeon, authoress, and countess who lived to the age of 97. She had quite a life.
