Cary Grant Walks His Siamese Cat

Cary Grant with his Siamese Cat. Beverly Hills 1955.

Film scholar and writer Farran Nehme, a.k.a. the "Self-Styled Siren," posted the above picture taken in 1955 of Cary Grant walking his Siamese cat through Beverly Hills to her Twitter page. I couldn't resist looking up this corner of Beverly Hills to see if the location has changed. Below is a Google Street View screenshot showing the same corner.

The location is the southeast corner of Charleville Blvd and Swall Dr in a residential part of Beverly Hills just a couple blocks from the high-end retailers and medical offices on Wilshire Boulevard. Unfortunately, the house that Grant passes now appears to be blocked by tall bushes, however, you can see part of the roof and the small chimney in the back.

Wow, that's a fantastic photo of Cary Grant! I'd love to see what the house looks like now. Too bad it's covered up.

I worked at the front desk of a Beverly Hills condo located on Swall.

When you think you can't love Cary Grant anymore...along he comes, casually walking his cat. And a siamese, no less!
