(Newser) – Beverly House, in Beverly Hills, has a storied past: Not only was it once home to publishing giant William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies—it was also a honeymoon destination for Jackie and John F. Kennedy. Perhaps less appealingly, it's the site of the famous Godfather scene in which a horse head turns up in a bed. It also appeared in The Bodyguard, agents Hilton & Hyland note. Now, Beverly House is on the market for $135 million. Alternatively, you can lease it for $600,000 per month, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The seller is attorney and investor Leonard M. Ross, who previously sought $165 million for the home. It's a six-acre property, and the house itself is 50,000 square feet. Designed by Gordon Kauffman, the home includes a 50-foot entry hall and 22-foot ceilings in the living room. There are three pools, a tennis court, and a terrace that can seat 400. Beverly House was built in the 1920s by a banker named Milton Getz, the Times notes.

Joe picked up the mansion for his golden boy. But it was also where he frolicked with Marylin. That was the begin of the end for him when Bobby had Marylin killed. Then that got him killed at the Ambassador Hotel not by Sirhan Sirhan but Bobby's own guard Thane Eugene Cesar (now hiding in Philippines.) Cesar told so many lies to police after the incident. Lied about having sold a weapon that matched the bullet that killed Kennedy. Lied about not owning a .22, same size that killed Kennedy. He was a perfect executioner as he was behind Kennedy, who was killed from a shot in the head from behind. Sirhan was in front and could not deliver that shot. Cesar said he never fired his pistol although later a reporter dug a slug out of the wall that only Cesar could have fired. Thane was an employee of Lockheed, a manufacturer who was going to get very wealthy if the cambodia/laos/Nam hostilities heated up like they wanted it to. Bobby promised to cool all that down. Thane got a way with it because LAPD totally botched the investigation. A captain later said they never had any concern for the Kennedys anyway.
