Larry Fine-Louis Stone Residence, William J. Summerbell c.1925
Architect William J. Summerbell designed the Mediterranean Revival style house in 1925. Before 1930, the house was home to two notable actors; Louis Stone and Larry Fine. Stone was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1929 for The Patriot. After that, he appeared in seven films with Greta Garbo, spanning both the silent and early sound periods. He appeared in more than 80 films between 1914 and 1953. Stone, who was prematurely gray, played mature roles that fitted his appearance. He later moved to Hancock Park where he met a tragic end by suffering a heart attack while in pursuit of some pranksters who had thrown his lawn furniture in the pool.
Larry Stone played the role of Curly in The Three Stooges and is remembered for his trademark zany hair style.
