In 1976 Moritz, with the help of her personal assistant Steve Osburn, fellow actor Monte Bane, and friend Don Monte of the
National Enquirer, moved out of her Hollywood Boulevard apartment into her first home on Mount Olympus in the Hollywood Hills.
Her Hollywood friends included:
J. Howard Marshall, husband of Anna Nicole Smith, Ernest Borgnine, casting director Marvin Paige, Joe Namath, Flip Wilson, Arlena Sue Farber, Will Sampson, Steve Osburn, Bonita Money, etc.
She sold real estate in the Los Angeles area and later married (in 1979–1980) producer Billy Fine, who some years later cast her in one of the films he produced called "Jungle Warriors" (1984).
Louisa bought a hotel on South Reeves in
Beverly Hills and renamed it "The Saint Moritz Hotel" after herself.
Moritz has always had the dream of being an attorney like her father and uncle. Her dream finally came true when she finished law school and passed the California
bar exam. Trivia [edit ] References [edit ] External links [edit ]
