A home with enough entertainment history to warrant its own star on Hollywood Boulevard is now up for sale.

The former home of legendary producer and promoter Sid Bernstein — which also appears in the opening sequence of James Dean’s 1959 film “Rebel Without a Cause” — is being shopped off-market for $4.4 million, The Real Deal has learned.

Situated right near Runyon Canyon on Franklin Avenue, the two-story home has five bedrooms and four bathrooms across 4,400 square feet of living space. The classic Southern Colonial property includes a gym, lush landscaping, an outdoor kitchen, a swimming pool and a sunroom.

The home last traded for $2 million in 2010, when executives at film distribution and production company MonteCristo International Entertainment, acquired the site, records show.

Darian Robin of the Agency has the off-market listing.

Bernstein, who passed away in 2013 at age 95, is best known for bringing the Beatles to mainstream America. He was also instrumental in the success of the Rolling Stones, the Moody Blues, Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett.
