The Bronson Caves

May 29th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

This past weekend, on a recommendation from fellow stalker Steve, I dragged my dad and my fiance out to stalk the Bronson Caves in Griffith Park.  Friends have been urging me to stalk the Bronson Caves, which are most commonly known as being the location of “the Batcave” from the 1966 television series Batman, for years now, but somehow I just never made it out there.  Until this past Saturday, that is.  🙂

And I am so glad I finally did!!  The term “caves” is actually something of a […]

The Taken Mansion

May 28th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past weekend, my fiance and I rented the movie Taken – which was phenomenal, by the way!!!! – and I immediately recognized a home featured in it that was originally used in a Season One episode of fave show Beverly Hills, 90210.  I have been dying to stalk the home for the past few years, but, unfortunately, it is located inside of  a gated community and I haven’t been able to get past the guards.  Yet!!!  🙂  But that’s why God created real estate websites – which is where I got […]

Descanso Gardens

May 27th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past weekend I dragged my fiance and my parents out to stalk Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge – another location that I discovered thanks to my new favorite stalking book.  The 160 acre botanical garden has been featured in countless movies and television shows over the years and is also a popular wedding venue. 

E. Manchester Boddy (pronounced “Boh-dee”) first purchased the property now known as Descanso Gardens in 1937 to build a home for his family.  Besides being the owner and publisher of the Los Angeles […]

It’s A Wrap!

May 26th, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

Got an email the other day from fellow stalker Heather who told me about a store in Burbank named It’s A Wrap that sells clothing, props, and memorabilia from recently wrapped movies and television shows!  Being that the store sounded right up my alley, I immediately ran out to stalk it!!  🙂  It’s A Wrap has been in business selling Hollywood costumes and movie merchandise since 1981.  Owner and founder Janet Dion purchases clothes and props directly from the many movie studios in the area and sells them to the public […]

Happy Memorial Day!

May 25th, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

I am taking today off for Memorial Day, but will be back tomorrow with a new location to stalk.  🙂  Hope everyone is enjoying their three day weekend and taking a moment to remember those who lost their lives fighting for our country.

The Starsky & Hutch Mansion

May 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few weeks ago, my mom drove me by what has to be one of the biggest houses I’ve ever seen in my entire life!  The property spans almost an entire city block!  When you drive by it literally just keeps on going and going and going!  LOL  My mom showed me the absolutely ginormous Tudor style mansion to see if I recognized it from any movies or television shows.  She had an inkling that, because of its massive size, it was probably used as a filming location at some point in […]

Naomi Clark’s House

May 21st, 2009 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Back in March, I came across this post on fave website On Location Vacations which stated that 90210  was filming that day at a private residence located at 145 North Rossmore Avenue in Los Angeles.  That residence turned out to be the mega-mansion that Naomi Clark and her sister moved into in the episode of the CW series that aired last week, entitled “Zero Tolerance”.  And since the home was also featured quite prominently in last night’s episode as the location of Naomi’s after-prom party, of course I just […]

Altadena Town and Country Club

May 20th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I predicted a few weeks ago, getting engaged has opened up a whole new stalking world for me!  And even though I have known for years now the exact spot where I want to get married, I am fully planning on dragging my fiance from one end of L.A. to the other looking at wedding/filming locations.  Hey, a girl should really keep her options open, shouldn’t she?  For stalking’s sake, at least.  🙂  So, yesterday I set out to stalk my very first wedding (and, of course, […]

Farnsworth Park

May 19th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My favorite movie of all time has got to be Dirty Dancing. I’ve loved the coming-of-age film ever since I was about 13 years old.  Oh, how I wanted to be Baby!  🙂  Growing up, I made my best guy friend practice doing “the lift” with me everytime we were in a swimming pool.  LOL   And, like Baby, I could never seem to get it right!  🙂  It has long been my location dream to one day travel to Pembroke, Virgina to stalk Mountain Lake Resort, the hotel where most of the filming […]

Rae’s Restaurant

May 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last weekend, while lounging by the pool in Palm Springs, I happened to open up People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful  issue and almost fell right off my lawn chair when I saw a pic of my girl Chelsea Handler posing at fave restaurant Rae’s in Santa Monica.  🙂  Chelsea was featured as one of the magazine’s “Pretty Funny” people and her entire photo shoot (which you can watch a behind the scenes video of here) took place at a small 50s style diner that is no stranger to the silver […]
