1807 N. Winona Boulevard 90027
Before the current structure was built, 1807 N. Winona Boulevard was the home of prominent early film child star Jackie Coogan at the time of the 1920 US census. Jackie Coogan was the son of vaudeville entertainers. Charlie Chaplin spotted Coogan at a stage performance and tested his screen presence in “A Day’s Pleasure” (1919) before starring him in “The Kid” (1921), a huge success. By 1923, Coogan was among the highest paid stars in the film business. After growing out of childhood, his career went into a slide and his starring roles ended in the early 1930s with “Tom Sawyer” and “Huckleberry Finn.” He entered into a three-year marriage to Betty Grable in 1937, the first of three short nuptials. He continued to act in film, mostly bit-parts, and had some success in television, in particular, playing Fester in “The Addams Family” (1964-1966). He continued to work until his death in 1984 in Santa Monica, California.
