In the 1950s Ronald Reagan's best movies were behind him, but he still had enough charm to be asked to host "General Electric Theater," an early television anthology show.
GE rewarded Reagan for the show's rating success with this 4,764 square-foot modern ranch house in the hills west of downtown Los Angeles.

Ronald and wife, Nancy, sold the home in 1982, after he moved on to his biggest starring role -- as the 40th president of the United States.
