3055 Jean Leon
Ceferino Carrion fled Spain as a stowaway. When he reached LA, he was Jean Leon: a man who constantly transformed himself. Who was he? Was he Jean the taxi driver? Or Jean, Frank Sinatra’s trusted waiter? Jean Leon…, owner of the legendary La Scala Restaurant? Jean…, the provider of Marilyn Monroe’s last meal? Or Jean, the man who stole French vines to create one of Spain’s best wines? His life is the stuff of fiction, recounted here by Paul Newman, Robert Wagner, Michelle Phillips, Dennis Hopper and others.
