Elinor Fair, a prominent actress in the silent film era, lived in apartment 303 in 1930. Born in 1903, she began acting in Vaudeville and started in film in 1918. She worked with Cecil B. DeMille, and was married to William Boyd (Hopalong Cassidy). After the silent film era ended, Fair was relegated to minor roles, and she retired from film in 1934 after having appeared in 45 productions.
Philo McCullough, another prominent actor in films, lived in apartment 404 in 1930. Born in 1893, McCullough began in film with the Selig Company in 1912, specializing in light comedic parts. He soon found his niche as the mustachioed, oily-haired villain and appeared opposite nearly every other prominent actor in the silent era. He remained active in film until 1953, having appeared in an astounding 220 productions by then. His valedictory role was in “They Shoot Horses Don’t They” in 1969.
