According to David Wallace's book Lost Hollywood, Cecil B. DeMille built the El Cabrillo courtyard apartment complex in 1928 to house stage actors lured from Broadway to Hollywood with the advent of sound pictures. Designed by husband-and-wife architect team Arthur and Nina Zwebell, the nationally landmarked Spanish Colonial complex was renovated and converted to condos a few years ago. And now, courtesy of the MLS, here's a furnished one-bedroom available for sublease that sounds like it might be perfect for an East Coast actor in town for a few months to film a talkie. Per the listing, the 940-square-foot unit has "original tile, ironwork & fixtures with modern conveniences like central air, fully appointed kitchens and washer/dryer." There's also a two-story living room with fireplace and gated parking. Monthly rent for the Old Hollywood apartment is a new Hollywood $2,800.
