Actor Edgar Kennedy lived at 4600 W. Kingswell Avenue at the time of the World War I draft registration (1917). A native California, he initially moved to New York to appear in the musical stage before returning to Los Angeles in 1912 to start in film. He was one of the original Keystone Kops, after which he was cast as a villain. He softened his image by 1920, and segued into husband and detective roles. In 1928, he co-starred in the Our Gang, Charlie Chase, and Laurel and Hardy comedies at Hal Roach. He successful transitioned into talkies, playing domestic comedy roles. By the time of his death in 1948, he had been prominently featured in 411 productions!
4600 was also the residence of actor Jack Holt at the time of the 1930 census. Holt was a staunch, granite-jawed American leading man of silent and early talkie films, much associated with Westerns. A native of New York City, Holt volunteered to ride a horse over a cliff in a stunt for a film crew shooting in San Rafael in 1914. In gratitude, the director gave him a part in the film. Holt followed the movie people to Hollywood and began getting bits and stunt jobs in the many Westerns and serials being made there and soon became a frequent supporting player in their films, and then a star in serials. A move to Paramount studios in 1917 cemented his leading man status, and he became one of the studio’s great stars, particularly in a very successful series of Westerns based on the novels of Zane Grey. Talkies proved no problem for Holt, and his career thrived, although mostly in run-of-the-mill adventure films.
