I'm going to jump in the google-mobile to see if I can find the apartment building.
There's the 1925 Karnak Apartments at 5617 La Mirada Avenue and the 1926 Ahmed Apartments at 5616 Lexington Avenue. The architect of both was J M (John Manley) Close, who also designed the 1930 Amasis Apartments at 747 Wilcox Avenue (the only one of the three to retain most of its original external features). Moving away from Hollywood, another of Close's Egyptian creations is the 1928 Osiris Apartments at 430 S Union Avenue in the Westlake neighborhood.
