Shawn Levy discusses the death of John Belushi and many of the most fascinating stories of the Chateau Marmont. The hotel has been operating for more than 90 years and Hollywood's biggest stars have been guests. To this day it remains a mysterious hideaway for the biggest names in entertainment. Levy shares several stories on this episode including James Dean, Natalie Wood, Jim Morrison, John Belushi, Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan, Roman Polanski, and more.
Perched above the Sunset Strip like a fairytale castle, the Chateau seems to come from another world entirely. Its singular appearance houses an equally singular history. While a city, an industry, and a culture have changed around it, Chateau Marmont has welcomed the most iconic and iconoclastic personalities in film, music, and media. It appeals to the rich and famous not just for its European ambiance but for its seclusion: Much of what's happened inside the Chateau's walls has eluded the public eye.
