The multi-talented Martha Sleeper was born in Lake Bluff in 1910. Her uncle JJ Murdock ran the Keith theater chain and he also lived in Lake Bluff. Murdock went on to run RKO Pictures, and both the Sleeper and Murdock families moved to Beverly Hills where they lived just two doors apart on Foothill Road.
