A Beverly Hills home built for celebrity-businessman-eccentric Howard Hughes in the 1960s is going to auction. Hughes inherited a fortune at age 19 when his parents died and followed his dreams to Hollywood. He started in the film industry winning Academy Awards and became romantically involved with stars Jane Russell and Ava Gardner. Following his movie career, Howard branched out into airlines, airplane design and manufacturing. He set flight distance records flying around the world in just 91 hours, controlled and owned most of Trans World Airlines, and in 1946 crashed his military test plane into three Beverly Hills homes leaving him with injuries that bothered him the rest of his life.
