The Obituary
 
I suppose you know everyone who is (or has ever been) a celebrity has an obituary on file in most major newspapers and press syndicates (that's why they call these files "The Morgue." The files are started when the person first becomes of note and continually updated, so that when they die, newspaper and press syndicates can file a story very quickly. Apparently, someone must have noted his relationship in the file (even if it was redlined at the time as unprintable.)

His height is even mentioned in the Washington Post obituary.

"His looks and a less-than strapping physique stunted his career prospects -- a fact he had anticipated.
His height (5-foot-6) allowed him to play a jockey opposite love interest Shirley Temple in "The Story of Seabiscuit" (1949).

To be honest, I didn't know who William Eythe was, until JeffDiego mentioned him a few days ago.
I find it sad that he died at the young age of 38.

one last thing.....

I thought it was great that Lon McCallister's 2005 obituary in the Washington Post, mentions William Eythe as his companion.
That's pretty amazing, considering Mr. Eythe died way back in 1957!

Here's the obit:

Hello Ethereal:
Interesting photos and information about Lon McAllister and William Eythe. The beautiful young woman with Eythe in front of the theatre was his wife, Buff Cobb. They were married for barely a year in 1947/48. She was the granddaughter of writer and humorist Irvin S. Cobb, had grown up in NYC and Santa Monica, and wed ladies' man Greg Bautzer at age 19. Eythe was her second marriage. She went on to be Mrs. Mike Wallace ("60 Minutes") for several years and later married a fourth time.
I'll ask Richard Lamparski if McAllister ever mentioned the reason why Eythe and Cobb married & report back.
Ann Baxter was married to John Hodiak in 1946 so if she was at this premier it'd be likely she would be with him.
Here are some of Lamparski's radio interviews including one with Lon McAllister:

http://otrrlibrary.org/OTRRLib/Libra...20Became%20Of/


The woman relaxing with Eythe in the photo looks familiar & has a certain resemblance to the "later" Frances Farmer, but I agree it's probably not Frances.

I remember him in this movie because of a scene near the beginning that, not knowing his character yet, was strange. He's piloting his plane toward the aircraft carrier and becomes restless, moving around in his seat. We see him reach down between his legs as he's moving about, and he pulls out--an Oscar! Which explains his character's name: Ensign Hallam "Oscar" Scott.
He's one of those Hollywood actor types that joins the service and his superiors feel have a somewhat careless attitude and need to be taught a lesson!

Is there a list of films where an Academy Award has appeared? I'm sure this film must be the most unusual place.
Speaking of, here's a trivia question: "What is the only film to win the Oscar for Best Picture, that an Academy
Award (Oscar) appears in?"

Paul Ivar Wharton Murder

N. C. McDermott
Henry E. Bolte
Virginia Bolte

If I can get a handle on this--as correctly as possible, in some kind of a story format,
because, as one source put it: "the facts of the case were vague."

Known professionally as Paul Ivar, Paul lived at the Hacienda Park Apartments with Mrs. W. A. (Ada) Wharton,
his invalid adopted mother. Mrs. Wharton told police that Paul was adopted originally by Charles Dorsett of Billings,
Montana, but he came to Los Angeles alone in 1926. (Paul was 25 in 1935, so he'd have been 16 then.) He became
an attendant at Aimee Semple McPherson's Angelus Temple and that's where she first met him. Later she adopted
him and brought him to her home to live, hence Paul Ivar Wharton.

Paul designed the robes for Aimee Semple McPherson’s choir along with a few of Sister Aimee’s costumes, in
addition to designing dresses for actresses Jean Harlow, Aileen Pringle, and Constance Bennett among others.
He may have been Chinese.

On April 25, 1935, according to Ada, Paul had a small dinner party entertaining two-or possibly three-male
acquaintances at a supper in his part of their quarters. Shortly after 10 p.m., Mrs. Wharton said she heard
several shots and, crawling into the room, she discovered Paul succumbing to his three gunshot wounds.
As she knelt over Paul another man she never saw before appeared, gave one look, and ran out.

The police, questioning Wharton's foster mother, a bedridden paralysis victim, said she heard Paul and his
dinner guests chatting after they had dined. Then she said she heard them quarrel and a moment later several
shots rang out. She said the voice of one of the fleeing guests who scrambled through a window, sounded like
that of a man she knew only as "Billy."

During the meal, her adopted son, Paul, looked into her room and she told him that earlier a woman tenant in the
building had tried to call on her, but that "a blond man" answered the door and tried to keep her out. "Who is that
blond man," she asked Paul and he replied, "Oh, he's just a friend of Billy's."

As they were questioning Mrs. Wharton, the police were called away to another shooting. Across town at 1 a.m.,
UCLA sociology professor and law instructor Henry E. Bolte, 38, who told his wife, Virginia, he was attending a
law banquet. He was walking through his apartment door when William M. Howard, shot him twice in the back
as Virginia watched. Then Howard turned the gun on himself.

What's happening?

https://jhgrahambooks.files.wordpres...-4-27-1935.jpg
https://news.google.com/newspapers?n...,3938546&hl=en

The best the police could piece together, Paul Ivar had a dinner party and invited William McCauley Howard to supper, a man
he used mostly as an unpaid chauffeur, and Howard, around 35 years old, brought a 21 year-old blond sailor with him named
McDermott. The police eventually found McDermott and questioned him aboard the U.S.S. Pennsylvania. [Wonder if he was
still a sailor on the Pennsylvania when it was in Pearl Harbor six years later?]

McDermott said he didn’t know either Ivar or Howard until they picked him up a few days before the dinner when he was on his
way from San Pedro to Los Angeles, but he was soon staying at Howard’s apartment. At the dinner, Howard asked McDermott
to wait downstairs so he could speak to Ivar. McDermott was then surprised to see Howard speeding away shortly afterward,
and ran upstairs to borrow money from Ivar to get back to San Pedro. That’s when he found Ada Wharton holding the bloody Ivar.
So McDermott jumped out a kitchen window and hitched back to his battleship. [Jumped out the window? What?]

Howard went over to Bolte's place, waited for him and shot him before shooting himself. Bolte was in the hospital for
several days before succumbing to the wounds. Henry Bolte told the officers on the scene that he’d never seen Howard before,
but his wife Virginia identified him from a photograph as “a friend of the family” who was a frequent visitor as recently as five months
previously. Later she testified that Howard had worked as a chauffeur for her husband the previous year and had padded some bills that
Howard refused to pay. She called Howard a psychopathic type and denied there was anything more than a business relationship between
the two. The police attributed the entire murder, attempted murder and suicide to financial differences between the two men. [Yeah, what
else could have prompted all this besides "debt madness!"]

https://karencarpenterdiedforyoursin...6082839833.jpg
Henry G. Bolte in the hospital with his wife Virginia Bolte. Inset: Paul Ivar Wharton.

Ivar used his apartment as a work studio and the officers said they hoped to interview two seamstresses who worked for him to get some
information about his acquaintances and habits. Later on it developed that Ivar was involved a few months earlier in the disappearance of
a diamond ring and was put on probation. They interviewed actress Aileen Pringle who testified that Ivar had charged hundreds of dollars
of cosmetics to her account, telling her he used them. Investigators also interviewed a woman “dressed as a man” and uncovered a possible
underworld connection when friends of Ivar’s remembered him bragging that New York gangster Arnold Rothstein entrusted him with a million
dollars and then was shot and killed before he learned that Ivar had spent some of it. [?] By the way, actress Aileen Pringle had been aboard
William Randolph Hearst’s yacht, the Oneida, the weekend that director Thomas Ince was mysteriously shot, served as illustrator Ralph Barton’s
inspiration for Lorelei Lee’s friend Dorothy Shaw when he illustrated Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and, in 1944, she married James M. Cain.

How the police summed things up: “They were strange men who led strange lives,” a police officer told reporters.

Thanks Martin, for your bringing to our attention the bizarre story behind the 1935 murder of "Paul Ivar Wharton," which sounds lifted from the pages of "Hollywood Babylon."
In Carey McWilliam's masterful "Southern California Country; An island On The Land" (1946), a sub-chapter entitled "Hollywood Case History" states:

"He lived in a fashionable apartment on Sunset Boulevard and over his boulevard shop appeared the caption "Paul Wharton, Couturier." No one knew much about him. He liked to propagate conflicting stories about his parentage. On occasion, he liked to imagine himself the son of fabulously wealthy Montana people, or again he would announce that his parents were Chinese, or, to others, he would say that his parents had gone down on the Titanic. He was born, however, in Billings, Montana in 1909.Reporters described him, at the time of his death, as 'a fragile, dark-haired youth, with dark, heavy-lidded, amative eyes, almost Oriental in quality.' In 1926, this strange creature, so like a character out of Firbank or van Vechten, began his Los Angeles career as a designer of pageants at Angelus Temple. Later, he moved westward along the boulevard and became a fashionable designer. At one time, he was arrested for narcotic addiction and released at the behest of Mrs. McPherson. The sharp cleavage in his mental life was revealed in his eccentric behavior. Once, while having tea in Beverly Hills, he casually slipped a diamond ring belonging to his hostess on his finger, and, despite her protests, walked off with it. The next day he announced that the ring had been stolen. And for this affair, he was again arrested. On an April night, in the year 1935, he was found murdered in his apartment. He had been reading, during the evening, two detective stories, 'The Killing of Judge McFarland' and 'The Second Shot." At the time his murder was widely reported, no one seemed to notice that his career was thoroughly typical of the period, 1926-1935, and of the place, Hollywood. One could fill an encyclopedia with biographies of the Paul Whartons of Hollywood."

At a curious website called "The DeMille Conspiracy," certain details add to the picture.
As Martin Pal says, "Paul Ivar Wharton" was actually Charles Orin Dorsett, adopted by a couple in Montana. Apparently the adoptive father grew resentful of the artistic boy's "effeminacy," and the teenage "Orin" moved to Hollywood, where he honed his flair for design and fashion. Paul was good-looking, with full lips and highly-arched eyebrows. Over the next several years, he was adopted (whether formally or informally) by a wealthy female invalid with whom he lived at The Hacienda Arms Apartments, dabbled in narcotics and petty thievery, created fanciful tales of his exotic heritage, designed clothes for fashionable movie queens such as Constance Bennett and Aileen Pringle, and no doubt aroused passions in various men.
Adding to the confusion, a news account claimed Paul's name was actually Ivandorf Moransky, as that was a name listed at the apartment house.
Paul's killer was apparently William "Billy" Howard, a "chauffeur" (and likely sexual partner) who lived at 5523 Sierra Vista Avenue in Hollywood (house seems to be still standing, hideously remodeled), and at The Norfolk Apartments at 820 1st Street on Bunker Hill.
Exactly why Howard then went to 1329 North Gordon in Hollywood and killed a married professor he had worked for (and was probably sexually involved with), then shot himself, and if the Professor was also involved with Paul Ivar Wharton - seems to be a mystery.

(By the way, Martin, Aileen Pringle was indeed aboard the yacht with Thomas Ince and Co. She told Richard Lamparski that there was no shooting or love triangle. Richard was irritated that Bogdonavich made a movie which makes it appear the shooting and triangle story was based on fact.)

Certainly appears so—Bing aerial has a better shot of the matching porch. Zimas says built 1906.

And while we're in Brooklyn Heights............

Last night when I was looking at the aerials for 2453 1/2 Folsom Street, I noticed two interesting buildings that we haven't seen before on NLA.


The first is the apartment building on the southwest corner of N Fickett & Boulder.

I tried to find the building permit (using 2456 Boulder St.) & it said "no matches found". (this happened to me a lot on that website......am I doing something wrong?)



Interesting building #2

This mixed-use building is on the southeast corner of N. Fickett & Boulder.

To get a sense of place here they are together.

I have a question:
Are my photographs too large?

I post the largest at 1280 x 1040. If they're too big, I can easily change them to 1024 x 768.

I choose the 1280 x 1040 because it makes you feel like you're actually there on the street (and of course, you can see all the small details)
But I have a fairly large computer screen.....what happens if someone has a smaller screen?
