The Duchess Adores . . .

Robert Evans at Woodland


T Magazine features the sentimental story of Robert Evans, film producer extraordinaire (and previous recipient of the Duchess's attention) and his beloved home, Woodland.  Located in Beverly Hills, the French-style (or Hollywood Regency) house has played a prominent role in Evans's life -- he has worked from a home office at Woodland for many years, wooed several of his wives and other paramours there, and has entertained grandly and with lots of derring-do within its walls.  His Woodland tennis matches are legendary, and the home represents the best of what is now perhaps forgotten Hollywood glamour:  quality over quantity; hefty doses of flash and beauty; secrecy; and fun. 

And for your viewing pleasure, readers, Mr. Evans himself narrates the story of his most legendary romance with Woodland.
