The Loved One

Released 1965
Distributor MGM

Tony Richardson’s take on the veddy British Evelyn Waugh’s skewing of Hollywood culture and the death business wasn’t very popular with audiences in 1965, but has become one of the key films of the era. Shot largely on the grounds of LA’s Doheny Mansion, the upscale location equivalent of Bronson Canyon.
