The Finn, the twin and the inn: a history of the Little River Inn and its families

Little River, CA: The Abalone Press, 1994. 100p., illust.; this "perfectbound" book is beginning to come apart, so far title page only is loose. Wraps somewhat shelfworn. Inscribed and signed by Ole Hervilla, the Finnish-American founder of the historic inn. Laid in is a nice color postcard reproducing a very able watercolor of the building. As is, leaves loosening.

A number of movies were shot in the vicinity, the casts usually eating at Little River. Julie Harris offered to help during a waitress shortage, James Dean ("East of Eden") was obnoxious. Three snapshots show Jane Wyman and Lew Ayres.
