Back to the House of Tomorrow is the story of a house significant for its role in Palm Springs and Hollywood history, and for its personal themes of family and community, tragedy and renewal.

Discover the real history of one of the most photographed homes in the City, an architecturally and historically significant residence designed by William Krisel for the family of renowned Palm Springs developer, Robert Alexander.

Perched like a spaceship on a Vista Las Palmas neighborhood hill, the House of Tomorrow, aka the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway, was featured in a 1962 Look magazine photo-shoot.

A film by Simcha Shtull.
