Due to its close proximity to Hollywood, Palm Springs has been tied to the culture of tinseltown even before this oasis town was incorporated in 1938.

Much of this was due to the “two hour” rule, a famous rule in many actors’ contracts that they could live no more than two hours away from the movie set they were working on.
