The Home of KIT GUARD

532 N. Plymouth Blvd., Hollywood, CA
This apartment complex, a stone's throw from Paramount Pictures, was the home of Kit Guard (1894-1961), the Danish-born supporting player ( nè Klitgaard) who almost always found himself cast as comedic gangsters and usually at Columbia Pictures rather than Paramount. Guard, who spent his declining years as a nightclub doorman, passed away at the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA.
