Inside Move: Fire destroys Evans office

Classic pix, trophies, awards, art lost in disaster

Fire has destroyed the building on Robert Evans’ home property that housed his projection room, trophy room and office. It erupted 7:30 Tuesday morning.

Evans’ maid immediately called the Beverly Hills Fire Dept., and within minutes “50 firemen were on the scene.” Evans said if it had spread to the giant trees on the property “it could have been a forest fire.”

In addition to the above losses, he said many of his classic films housed in the projection room are lost, and all his trophies and awards also went up in smoke plus an art collection “valued at over a million dollars.”

Evans said that “some of Hollywood’s biggest deals had been made there. I could write a book on that alone.” He added that many of his own personal legal dealings had been settled there during the 35 years he has called it home and office.

Evans will now conduct his business from his office on the Paramount lot, where he has three projects in the works — also his next book, “The Fat Lady Sang,” for Simon & Schuster.
