2225 Cheremoya Ave., Hollywood, CA
This property on a hilly street off famed Beachwood Canyon was the home at various times to a host of film folks, including stunt-man Gene Alsace/Rocky Camron in 1930; singing star Jane Frazee in 1939 and Mrs. Margaret Herrick, the head librarian of the Academy of Motion a Pictures Arts and Sciences whose wonderful facility on La Cienega Blvd. is named in her honor.

Gene Alsace was billed Buck Coburn in his only starring Western, the poverty stricken Willis Kent oater Gunsmoke on the Guadalupe (1935). He is seen far left next to ubiquitous B-Western henchman Roger Williams. (photo courtesy of Les Adams)
