Disappear here. --Caption of a painting of Death Valley at the Furnace Creek Inn The joy of success for Beverly Hills real estate developer and liquor importer Jules Berman was in providing for his only child. When he was 7, Barry Berman asked to go to Hawaii, so his father took him there. There would be more trips as Barry got older--to Africa and India.

Late one hot summer night in 1982, three of my raffish teen-age friends and I left the Odyssey, a now defunct dance club, and headed north to the Sunset Strip looking for something rebellious to do. Feeling lawless, we drove up Fuller Avenue to Runyon Canyon. Benny had heard it was haunted. "It used to be Errol Flynn's estate," he said. "I heard an old opera star died there," said Billy, flipping his long blue bangs out of his eyes. "You can still hear him singing on quiet nights."

No Man's Canyon was the earliest name given to the deep arroyo that nature sculpted in the Hollywood Hills. A century and a half ago, it was the wild domain of birds and rabbits, coyotes and lizards. Amazingly, it still is. Today the area is called Runyan Canyon, and it's a city park in the heart of the Hollywood Hills. The wildlife found in this nature preserve is a stark contrast to the wild life associated with nearby Hollywood and Sunset boulevards.
