Warner stayed in the house only a few years. He sold the property shortly after it was built to raise capital to finance a film- “The Jazz Singer” (1927), starring Al Jolson. It was followed by Warner Bros. classics “The Maltese Falcon” (1941), “Casablanca” (1942), and “Rebel Without a Cause” (1955).
