    The Drive To Eddie Nash’s House, Part 2 

    Well, there is no doubt that Bonnie is not only our own Laurel Erickson newsgirl, but she has started a trend. You see, another blogger has now posted a video of himself driving to Eddie’s from the Wonderland house, albeit in what seems to be an RV, school bus or camera mounted Google car (from the point of view).

    I am also still tracking down some key Wonderland players for interviews. Relatives and that girl who allegedly took the $50k from Eddie during his first trial. Stay tuned!

    Also, check out his blog. He posts some cool stuff:

      Cool! The scenery is so interesting, especially since I live in the Mid-west and we don’t see anything like this! Kind of reminds me of England to be honest. I wonder what the neighbors think of all this? What is the Wonderland area like presently, do you know? I have been to CA once ages ago and wanted to check this all out but the people I stayed with weren’t interested in showing me any of these types of sights (true crime fan here, so I wanted to see all the landmarks!)

        Hey Beth – this is my Youtube channel. I live in Studio City less than 5 miles from Eddie’s house. I made a bunch of videos of the hollywood hills. One is a drive to the Canyon Country store. The video titled Love Street, shows where Pam and Jim were living when he wrote the Song – and the lyric “there’s a store where the people meet” he is talking about the canyon store which is right across the street. I made one video driving up Sunset Blvd on a sunday morning. And one driving around Studio City. The Studio City one I drive past the Brady Bunch house.

          I absolutely love LA’s darker history.

        • Beth 3:16 pm on September 24, 2013 Permalink

          Awesome Bonnie, thanks so much! I’ll certainly check out your Youtube channel, I know my hubby will like to see that too, he is also into history. How exciting to live so close and be able to check all this out!!!

          OMG and you’ve been to the the Villisca Ax Murder house too!!! Soooo jealous!!!! πŸ™‚

          Bonnie is the bestest of the best when it comes to filming these rides. You wanna know why? She always has pertinent music playing on her stereo when she drives these drives. She puts the kick-butt music of the day in there. The last guy’s vid wasn’t bad. It’s just that there was no music and he WAY too close to some of those power lines. His mic needed a windscreen as well. Bonnie has you in the car with her. Not riding on top of the car….hanging on for dear life.

          As always, great vids, Bonnie! When you gonna do the one from Spahn Ranch to 10050 Cielo Drive? I’m dying here. LOL. (The Beatle’s White Album is the way to go with that,…musically speaking. Just sayin’. Lol)

        • Tori 8:40 pm on September 25, 2013 Permalink

          Love your video. Love the video from Dona Lola to wonderland! The songs! Terry Reid! That’s my fav part of wonderland when that song comes on!

        • localarts 12:52 pm on September 27, 2013 Permalink

          Cool channel Bonnie. I must have missed that Lemp St. vid earlier.

      Thanks for the link Bonnie. Love your video. The one featured above is too weird looking and I hate the angle and the obnoxious watermark.

      Are you in touch with any of the honest jurors??? I would love to hear from them.

      • John W 3:31 pm on September 24, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        I am with the NSA and I Will Ax The Questions!!! (No, I don’t have their names)

        • localarts 6:09 pm on September 24, 2013 Permalink

          LOL. 50k to bribe a juror back in 1990 would be the equilivant of 90,000 in today’s money.

        • John 9:33 am on September 25, 2013 Permalink

          I bet she burned thru that cash faster than a blunt goes up in Compton. I knew a guy who was a bus boy and was awarded damages from a slip fall at work. $150K in 1994. He burned thru it with his hangers-on yes men and within a year was mowing yards and bussing tables again in Corpus Christi.

      John have you ever attempted to interview The Nash? It would be great to hear his unvarnished side of things, and to gain more insight into the relationship he had with John C. Holmes, as well as the way he and JCH rose to the top in their respective fields. An authorized biography of Eddie Nash is definitely something that’s needed.

      • John 9:35 am on September 25, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        Jill Nelson who wrote the Holmes book, attempted to contact him via his attorney. Nash slept on it over the weekend and declined an interview. Thus, I have never given it a shot. I have his email though πŸ˜‰ I doubt he wants to talk to a crazy blogger in Texas like me.

    • criticextraordinaire 6:35 pm on September 24, 2013 Permalink | Reply

      I’d kinda like to do that drive in a ’75 Ford Granada, just like Ronnie, David and Billy did with Tracy serving as the wheel man. Or possibly a Chevy Nova that’s been painted with spray cans like John and Dawn did. That would make a great Hollywood Noir tour. After that, head on down to John’s old bungalow apartment house (well, where it used to be), and then have a nice lunch at the Bonaventure where he was interrogated by LA’s finest.

      • John 9:31 am on September 25, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        Absolutely! I used to have a white ’76 Granada in high school. Great a/c and it had a factory cassette player, and not an 8-track. It was fully loaded with leather and we took her to many concerts and on several camping trips. When I sold it a few years later, I don’t think the poor family even made it home 30 miles away, LOL. It had a lot of miles on it and needed work.

      • John 9:41 am on September 25, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        There are many tours that could be made in LA for Wonderland stuff for certain!!

    • localarts 7:11 pm on September 24, 2013 Permalink | Reply

      Sorry for the personal attact the other night criticextraordinaire. Wayyy too much to drink. Please accept my apology. The drive in the 75 Granada has been discused before on this blog and yes, that would be the bomb.

      Does anyone know what happened to Dawn Schiller’s father? I asked this in an earlier thread but I think it got buried, so sorry for the repeat, πŸ™‚ I see that Dawn, her brother, sister and mother all have FB pages. Sorry to see that her sister has cancer. Wondered if her dad has passed, or what ultimately happened to him. And yes, I love the music Bonnie puts in her videos! Very cool!

      • John 9:37 am on September 25, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        You should friend her on FB. I heard she is pretty friendly. Ask her about her book and her dad.

      • Tori 9:02 pm on September 25, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah I added dawn Schiller on fb and she messaged me back also . She’s very nice.

    • John W 5:22 pm on September 27, 2013 Permalink | Reply

      Bonnie’s driving videos are flawless. Mostly because every couple minutes I’d catch a glimpse of the lovely Bonnie with her designer shades looking beautiful.

    Eddie Nash’s House Up In The Donas 

    Bonnie was in the area and swung by Nash’s old place the other day… click for full size:

    The Gang entered the backyard via the right side, and went around back… luckily, for them, there is only one window on that side of the house (I saw that on Google Earth), and nobody saw them coming…

    • Built in 1964
    • 4 bedrooms
    • 4 baths
    • 3,139 sq. ft.
    • Swimming pool
    • Today it would sell for $1.3M and a nice $5K monthly house payment
    3315 Dona Lola Place, Studio City, CA.

    3315 Dona Lola Place, Studio City, CA.

    Here is what it looked like in the 1990’s. Eddie moved out in the 80’s.

    I like the stone facade a lot more!

      I like the stone look but I am thinking perhaps the owners wanted to just completely re-do the entire place. It does look more warm and homey now. Less like a fortress. My guess is they probably gutted the inside too. Maybe not. Who knows? I tell ya what if I ever do get to CA, I want to hire Bonnie as my personal tour guide! ❀

      • Bonnie Brae 4:35 pm on June 26, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        I’ll do it!!! lol – my grammy and aunts are sick of my death tours. I told them they don’t know how lucky they are. I can also take you to the Spahn Ranch, Manson family caves.

        • dreamweaverjenn 4:43 pm on June 26, 2013 Permalink

          That would be SO awesome!!!!

        • localarts 4:44 pm on June 26, 2013 Permalink

          Very nice Bonnie Brace. I wonder if those palm trees were there during the robbery?

    • Bobby 2:32 am on June 27, 2013 Permalink | Reply

      Nice photo Bonnie. I wonder if there still is a chain link fence on the right side of the house where the chimney is? That was the only real obstacle the gang had to contend with on the morning of the robbery. The blinds on the front windows must’ve been drawn that morning too… Would’ve been a bit of a problem for them otherwise.

        Hey Wonderland fans. I am also working on a documentary and recently was in LA doing interviews and research. I drove to the house on Dona Lola and you will all be sad to know it has been torn down. The house is gone. I also drove to eddies condo in Tarzana and on the buzzer pad to get past the security gate for access to the condos the name Nashrallah is still on the condo directory. I buzzed his condo, was let in and got to his door. A young lady answered and said she was the cleaner. I tried asking more questions and she was pretty stand off-Ish. I don’t blame her but I was unable to get too much info. I did meet some staff of the Starwood who mentioned some people that Eddie was very close to that have never been mentioned previously. One is Saul Berlin? Not sure how to spell the name but if anyone knew Saul and can help with more info I would love to tAlk. There is also speculation that in the mid 70’a Eddie and Saul knocked off a couple drug dealers who frequented the Starwood. I would love to talk with anyone who has more info on this subject? Please call, text or email me. Patrick-414-306-1667, patricke@efreightusa.com. Thank you and John how are you? Miss your posts and still waiting to see book or more excerpts. Take care wonderland group:)

      I swung by today and the house has been torn down with a new house being built in its place.
