After last week's fairly morose saunter through the corridors of The Chelsea Hotel, and the Gramercy Park hotel, we see Mr. Grant check into the Chateau Marmont on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard, where Howard Hughes famously holed up in the penthouse, Jean Harlow and Clark Gable carried out a torrid affair and Lindsay Lohan was recently banned for not paying a bill. In New York, he talks to former mobster Louis Ferrante about a robbery at the Pierre Hotel in 1972 in which cash and jewellery worth $10million was stolen.
