They brought the axe, and it did the trick. Holmby Hills’ famed “Mommie Dearest” mansion has finally sold following two substantial price cuts.

The most recent asking price was just under $20 million, down from the original $35 million price tag when it first listed last year, Mansion Global reported.

The Holmby Hills property was made famous in the 1981 cult classic film, a biographical depiction of the childhood of Christina Crawford and her allegedly abusive adoptive mother, Joan Crawford. The interior of the 6,055-square-foot home was not featured in the movie, but its backyard can be seen in several scenes, including the infamous swim race scene. The grounds appears to be “virtually unchanged” from how they looked in the film, Mansion Global noted.

The 1930s-era compound, which comprises six bedrooms, five bathrooms, two half-baths and a pool house, is located right across the street from the Playboy Mansion.

The main residence, staged by Meridith Baer, features a two-story foyer, a spiral staircase, a living room with an antique French fireplace, a formal dining room and staff rooms.
