The Orgell legend began in the late 1800s in England, where the Orgell family had developed a prominent clientele in London and among the Royal Family. Immigrating to the United States, the Orgell family found its way to Los Angeles and settled in nearby Beverly Hills in the 1940s, then a small hamlet of movie stars and producers, including Will Rogers, Mary Pickford, and Dougland Fairbanks.
