  3. THANK YOU THANK YOU for the pic. of C&C Encino Home! I only had one or two pictures of the inside from the book by Kay Gable, l96l.

    They were so wonderful! Wish I could have known Carole, my favorite-favorite actress.

    There was, amazingly, a secretary at my husband’s business here in NC who was ready to retire when I met her 10 yeas ago. Her name was Ann, but her husband and she used to live in LA 30 years earlier.Her guy was an electrician, and InCREDIBLY one of his calls WAS to the ranch itself on 2 occasions, during which time, Ann told me she accompanied him. After the mouth dropped open I “cornered” her in her cubicle (almost!lol) and was breathless for details. Thinking of this all, it had to have been roughly in the mid-60s, and as I asked SPECIFICALLY, she stated that Carole’s dressing room was still there, mirrored and even all those years later, very elegant.Further testmant to Kay Gable honoring what her husband would have wanted,keeping it in tact, even those first few years after his death. Imagine “tagging along” on a work “Call” to that house..A “drag” it was not, I’ve NO doubt, and isnt it a small world, how people turn up right in your own backward.(I got goosebumps hearing her speak of it, even in just some handfuls of chat..) :)
