The Brass Bottle

In 1950, a new Universal backlot street was created near the Los Angeles River.  The street was called Colonial Street and the Maxim house, slightly redesigned, became one of four homes hiding the river’s edge.  It appeared in a number of films and television series.  The last film that it appeared in, without major change, was The Brass Bottle

In the 1964, film Tony Randall discovers genie, Burl Ives, in the title bottle.  Barbara Eden plays Tony’s girlfriend (not a genie).  The film is available on DVD only at Amazon.  For this film the back porch and a 4-camel garage were added to the house.
