Continuing my prior post about the vamp woman’s apartment in Harry Langdon’s 1926 comedy feature The Strong Man, Harry meets the unscrupulous woman, played by Gertrude Astor, at the corner of Carondelet Street and W. 7th Street. With a suspicious cop on her tail, the woman hides her criminal boyfriend’s roll of cash in Harry’s coat.
Moments later, Gertrude drags Harry into a taxi parked in front of the Trebor Apartments, built in 1909, at 2520 W. 7th Street, just a few steps west of the corner where they met.
Lindsay Blake reports on her I Am Not A Stalker pop culture locations website that the Trebor Apartments also portrayed the home of Punky Brewster in the 1980s NBC sitcom.
