Frankenstein
, Bride of Frankenstein, and Invisible Man helmer James Whale is inspiring me to vacation in L.A. Apparently, the English director's former residence is up for rent. Yes, for only $395 per night, you too can sip drinks at the Villa Sophia -- a glamorous, old Hollywood pad in the exclusive Los Feliz neighborhood.

The rental sits on a 1927 Mediterranean estate, in a private cul-de-sac and offers the following amenities: Spa-like pool house with massive stone fireplace; 10 foot venetian plaster walls, surfaces of limestone, tile, marble and stone; Deluxe master bath with huge stone/marble steam shower room; Water closet with toilet and bidet; Brand new surround sound system. And if you get bored with all that, there's a pool, hot tub, and fancy pants covered grotto sitting area for you to enjoy outside.
