Fields house not just fun and games

September 07, 2003

Regarding Home of the Week, Aug. 24: I'd like to point out that the former W.C. Fields house in Los Feliz has not only "Seen Some Lively Times" but some deadly times too.

In March 1941, Cecil B. DeMille's grandson, Christopher Quinn, 2 1/2 years old, the son of actors Anthony and Katherine DeMille Quinn, slipped out of his grandparents' home and apparently toddled across DeMille Drive to the house of neighbor Fields, where he was later found drowned in a small pond Fields then had on his property. This according to "The Autobiography of Cecil B. DeMille."
