The late screen legend starred in Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and Pony Express, to name a few.
Rhonda Fleming was known as the “Queen of Technicolor” thanks to her vibrant presence onscreen in the 1940s and 50s. Her life off-screen was just as colorful, including her opulent home in Southern California, which is now on the market.
Though her home reflects anything but rugged Western style, Fleming, who passed away in 2020, starred in many a western flick, including Abilene Town (1946) with Randolph Scott, The Eagle and the Hawk (1950) opposite John Payne, The Redhead and the Cowboy (1951) with Glenn Ford, The Last Outpost (1951) opposite Ronald Reagan, Pony Express (1953) with Charlton Heston, Tennessee’s Partner (1955) opposite both Payne and Reagan again, and Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957) with Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas.

Renowned for her glamour, Fleming appeared in more than 40 films, starring opposite other Hollywood legends such as Robert Mitchum, Bing Crosby, and Bob Hope. Her former home reflects that star power and is a fun, albeit stark, contrast to the Western movie sets she once occupied.
