Hollywood Beach may get its name from the fact that Clark Gable lived here and partied here. Or maybe the reason is that Rudolph Valentino filmed the movie “The Sheik” here, although there seems to be some argument as to where the actual beach scenes were shot.
Here’s what Wikipedia states: “There appears to be some dispute as to where the film was shot. Emily W. Leider in Dark Lover: The Life and Death of Rudolph Valentino argue that the desert exterior scenes were filmed in Oxnard, California, and the Guadalupe Dunes of Santa Barbara County.
However, many contend, and history would seem to bear it out, that filming took place at the Famous Players Astoria Studios in Astoria, Queens, New York, with the exteriors shot at the “Walking Dunes” in East Hampton, Long Island.”
