Malibu’s Hollywood Past

In the late 1920s, May Rindge aka “Queen of the Malibu”, owned all 27 miles of the deserted Malibu coastline. After facing financial trouble due to several legal battles, she decided to rent space on one secluded mile to Hollywood celebrities and was instantly dubbed the Malibu Movie Colony.

By the mid-1930s, Rindge allowed the stars to actually purchase their homes, which, as the decades moved on, grew more and more expansive. Stars began knocking on her door from the likes of Bing Crosby, Gary Cooper, and Merle Oberon. Eventually, the musical world invaded, with former singer turned producer Peter Asher hosting everyone from Joni to James for all-day sing-alongs. Neil Diamond also owned for a long period of time, Ronnie Wood rented, as did Linda Ronstadt, who jogged the beach with her boyfriend, Gov. Jerry Brown. Even rapping rivals Shug Knight and Tupac Shakur rented at one time.
