Pamela’s House from “Teen Wolf”

Jan 31st, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A little over two weeks ago, fellow stalker Owen went on a mission to try to track down all of the locations used in the 1985 comedy Teen Wolf, which starred his favorite actor Michael J. Fox.  And the locale that he was most interested in finding was the house belonging to Pamela Wells (aka Lorie Griffin), Scott Howard’s (aka MJF’s) love interest in the flick.  Because Scott’s house in the movie was located in South Pasadena – ironically enough, it was the very same […]



The “Crossroads” Gas Station

Jan 28th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One  location that I was absolutely dying to stalk while visiting Palmdale last week was the supposed Texas-area gas station where Lucy Wagner (aka Miss Britney Spears) stole the keys to Ben’s (aka Anson Mount’s) Buick Skylark convertible in the 2002 movie Crossroads.  I had known from watching the flick’s DVD commentary with director Tamra Davis and writer Shonda Rhimes that the gas station scene was filmed somewhere in the Palmdale/Lancaster area, but unfortunately its exact location was not specified.  So, the night before my dad […]



The “Kill Bill” Church

Jan 27th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that my dad and I visited while stalking in the Lancaster and Palmdale areas last week was the Sanctuary Adventist Church which was used prominently in the 2003 and 2004 Quentin Tarantino movies Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Kill Bill: Volume 2.  And although I have never actually seen either of the Kill Bill flicks, I was dying to stalk the church because, thanks to fave book Hollywood Escapes: The Moviegoer’s Guide to Exploring Southern California’s Great Outdoors, I found out that it […]



The Los Feliz “Murder House”

Jan 26th, 2011 | By | Category: This and That

I can honestly say that out of all of the locations that I have ever stalked in my entire life, the subject of today’s post is hands down the most perplexing and mind-boggling!  Last week, when I called up Mike, from MovieShotsLA, to tell him that Geoff, from the 90210locations website, had tracked down the residence belonging to Donna Martin (aka Tori Spelling) during Season One of Beverly Hills, 90210, he fell silent with shock.  As it turns out there is another very famous, or […]



Donna Martin’s House from the B.Y.O.B. Episode of “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Jan 25th, 2011 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

One location that I have been wanting to stalk for just about as long as I can remember now is the mansion where Donna Martin (aka Tori Spelling) lived in the Season 1 episode of fave show Beverly Hills, 90210 titled “B.Y.O.B”.  For whatever reason, though, I could just NOT seem to track the place down.  Over the past few months I had managed to contact a few of the crew members who had worked on the episode and even a few of the actors […]



David’s Bungalow from “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Jan 21st, 2011 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

This past Tuesday night, Geoff, from the 90210locations website, asked for my help in tracking down the blue and white bungalow where Carly Reynolds (aka Hilary Swank) – and in later years David Silver (aka Brian Austin Green), Dylan McKay (aka Luke Perry), and Noah Hunter (aka Vincent Young) – lived during Season 8 of fave show Beverly Hills, 90210.  Now as I have mentioned a few times before on this site, I stopped watching 90210 after Season 4 when my girl Shannen Doherty left […]



Stalking in Palmdale!

Jan 20th, 2011 | By | Category: Uncategorized

My dad and I spent the entire day yesterday stalking locales in the Palmdale area – something I have been absolutely DYING to do for YEARS.  I was most excited about seeing the famed Four Aces movie set (pictured above), which appeared in an episode of The O.C. and the Lady Gaga/Beyonce “Telephone” music video, among COUNTLESS other productions.  Unfortunately though, because we were out stalking from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., I did not have a chance to write a post for today.  I […]



The “Swingers” Apartment Building

Jan 19th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I stalked quite a few months back, but for whatever reason have yet to blog about is the Los Feliz apartment building where Mike (aka Jon Favreau) lived in the 1996 comedy Swingers.  I had actually been wanting to stalk this location for quite some time, ever since reading on the IMDB trivia page for Swingers that Jon Favreau had lived there while writing the screenplay for the movie and during the actual filming.  IMDB even had the address of the building […]



72 North – The Real Life Emerald City Bar from “Grey’s Anatomy”

Jan 18th, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

While Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I were watching True Blood being filmed in Pasadena last Wednesday night, we got to talking with the owner of The Old Towne Pub about all of the filming that has taken place in the area over the years.  The owner was extremely knowledgeable and clued us in to a lot of locations that neither of us had previously known about, the most exciting of which for me was the downstairs bar of the former McMurphy’s Restaurant & Tavern, now […]



Watching the Filming of “True Blood”

Jan 17th, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

Last Wednesday evening I got a text from the owner of POP Champagne & Dessert Bar – my very favorite restaurant and the spot where the Grim Cheaper and I held the rehearsal dinner for our wedding last August – alerting me to the fact that the hit HBO television series True Blood would be filming at his eatery the following evening beginning at 9 p.m.  He invited me to come down to watch and even though I’ve never seen even one episode of the […]
