I just watched Jerry Lewis in the 1960 classic Cinderfella. What’s the location of the crazy mansion where they shot the film? Is it intact?

The Kirkeby Mansion in Bel-Air was a popular filming location. Lewis toiled for a wicked stepmother outside the same beaux arts estate that would go on to be the TV home of Jed Clampett and his hillbilly kin. In 1986, TV tycoon Jerry Perenchio demolished much of the manse to build an even bigger one with an underground parking lot.
