CLAUDETTE COLBERT ROAD

Googling ‘Claudette Colbert’, I was amazed to see a house for sale in Rancho Mirage on Claudette Colbert Road! On the wackytacky.blogspot, I discovered this picture which also features Greer Garson Road .
Rancho Mirage is between Palm Springs and Palm Desert. In 1955 Bing Crosby and fellow investors developed an area and called it ‘Blue Skies Trailer Village’. The fellow investors just happened to include George Burns,Barbara Stanwyck, Greer Garson,Danny Kaye and Claudette Colbert.
The streets of the village were named after these initial investors.

And the village is still there today.
Great story.
