I gave Cary Grant a parking ticket . . . illegally parked in a red zone in front of the Pasadena Civic Auditorium (someone inside had told him it was OK). At the time I gave the ticket he was not in the car but, as I was walking by to cite other vehicles sometime later, this voice said, "Hello there, young lady. I believe you gave me a ticket." A more gracious and charming man couldn't be found. We talked for 20 minutes. It was only afterwards that I thought I should have had him autograph the ticket.

Barbara Hutton was not an actress ("Hot Property," May 16). She was the Woolworth heiress and was worth $80 million to $100 million in 1935. When she and actor Cary Grant married, the newspaper headline read "Cash and Cary Married." You were no doubt thinking of Betty Hutton, the actress who starred in many of Hollywood's big musicals. She also starred in Cecil B. DeMille's "The Greatest Show on Earth." JOHN S. CLAREY South Pasadena

Cary Grant's only child, Jennifer Grant, is writing a memoir, the first time she has offered an in-depth look at her famous father. The publishing house Alfred A. Knopf said "Good Stuff" would be released in 2008 at the earliest. Jennifer Grant, 40, is the daughter of Grant and actress Dyan Cannon, who were married briefly in the 1960s before separating and bitterly divorcing.

Call it A-List Los Angeles. L.A. County has plenty of high-end neighborhoods, from Palos Verdes Estates to Pasadena. But when it comes to finding the best mansions in town, there's still nothing quite like the golden corridor from Beverly Hills to Malibu. This Westside area boasts one of the world's great concentrations of premier residential estates. The highest-price home transaction ever in California took place in this territory: the 2000 sale of an 8-acre Bellagio Road estate in Bel-Air by Dole Food Co.'s billionaire owner, David Murdock, to financial executive Gary Winnick in a $95-million deal.
