The "House that Jack Built" in Hollywood has a history of its own. Thousands of pinup pictures were taken on the property owned by John McDermott, including pictures that appear in House of Milan magazines.
- "The Tattered Dress"
- "The Tattered Dress" is a 1957 film noir directed by Jack Arnold and featuring Jeff Chandler, Jeanne Crain, Jack Carson and Gail Russell. Sever of the exterior shots were taken at the Spiderpool
- one shows Elaine Stewart driving into the driveway and exiting her car. She is wearing a dress that has been torn, exposing her let breast
- "Charleen" is seen swimming in the Spiderpool
- the underwater tunnel from the pool into the house is also shown
- Harold Lloyd
- The picture to the right is of Tura Satana. It was taken by Harold Lloyd at the Spiderpool (part of the John McDermott estate). It is printed as a 3-D photo on p.100 of "Harold Lloyd's Hollywood Nudes in 3-D"
It clearly shows "the spider" for whom the pool is named. Water would flow from the top of the mosaic, across the spider, and into the pool below.
- From Yahoo Spiderpool group
- There are bondage pictures at the pool, and at one time, I thought they might have been done by HOM, from the style(s) in the pictures, but we now know that the timeline would have been wrong, and they were probably done by John Willie, as the book claimed. (See: A John Willie Portfolio)
