Frank the Tank’s House from “Old School”

Jul 31st, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Three weeks ago, fellow stalker Geoff, from the 90210Locations website, emailed me to let me know that he had recently tracked down the house where Frank Ricard (Will Ferrell), aka “Frank the Tank”, and his new wife, Marissa Jones (Perrey Reeves), aka “Mrs. Ari” from Entourage, lived – well, until she kicked him out for streaking, anyway – in the 2003 comedy Old School.  I was beyond thrilled to hear this news as Frank and Marissa’s abode is one location that I have long […]

Floodlights Nightclub from “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Jul 30th, 2012 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Located directly across the street from Calvert Studios – the studio where fave show Beverly Hills, 90210 was lensed and the location that currently stands in for the exterior of The Rub massage parlor on the Lifetime television series The Client List – is the office building that masqueraded as Floodlights nightclub in the Season 1 episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 titled “Slumber Party”.  And while I had known about this locale for what seems like ages, for some reason, I had never stalked it […]

The Rub from “The Client List”

Jul 27th, 2012 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

Another The Client List location that fellow stalker Owen (aka Jennifer Love Hewitt’s biggest fan), from the When Write Is Wrong blog, tracked down recently was The Rub – the supposed Sugar Land, Texas-area massage parlor where JLove’s character, Riley Parks, works on the series.  Owen had actually been looking for the locale for quite some time and when he finally found it and sent me the address I literally just about fell off my chair!  As it turns out, The Rub is the exterior […]

The Burger That Ate L.A. from “Melrose Place”

Jul 26th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

Way back in July 2009, a fellow stalker named Zoe emailed me to ask for some help in tracking down a hamburger-shaped restaurant that had appeared regularly in establishing shots on the original Melrose Place. Because I had never really watched the series, though, and had never noticed a burger-shaped eatery in all my years of living in L.A., I was not able to offer much help.  So imagine my surprise when, while stalking in the West Hollywood area with Mike, from MovieShotsLA, a couple […]

Elvis Presley’s Honeymoon Hideaway

Jul 25th, 2012 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

While visiting my parents in the Coachella Valley last month, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, suggested that I do a re-stalk of the desert home where Elvis Presley and his new bride, Priscilla, spent their honeymoon in 1967.  I had originally stalked and blogged about the property way back in March 2008, when my website was just a few months old, but because the post (which you can read here) was a mash-up of sorts about several Palm Springs-area celebrity vacation homes, Mike thought it would be […]

Angela Bennett’s House from “The Net”

Jul 24th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Two weekends ago, while Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and I were driving around looking for a parking place in Venice Beach (NEVER an easy task!), we passed by the dwelling pictured above and he announced, “That’s the house where Sandra Bullock lived in The Net.”  Well, as you can imagine, I was absolutely bowled over to learn this bit of information and asked him to pull the car over immediately so that we could properly stalk the place.  And while I had not seen The Net […]

A Day Off

Jul 23rd, 2012 | By | Category: Uncategorized

I spent all day Friday running around and, unfortunately, did not have time to write a post for today, but I will be back tomorrow with a whole new location. I hope all of my fellow stalkers had a fabulous weekend! And in the meantime, check out this fabulous new blog I just discovered called Cupcakes and Cashmere. LOVE IT!

The Venice Beach Cotel – aka SanDeE*’s Apartment from “L.A. Story”

Jul 20th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been dying to track down ever since first moving to Southern California in 2000 was the apartment building where SanDeE* (my girl Sarah Jessica Parker) lived in the 1991 classic comedy L.A. Story. (And yes, that is the correct spelling of her name – as she says in the movie, “Big s, small a, small n, big d, small e, big e, and there’s a little star at the end”.  LOL)  I knew that the building was located somewhere in […]

Pickwick Bowl from “Parks and Recreation”

Jul 19th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

While watching the Season 4 episode of Parks and Recreation titled “Bowling for Votes” back in June, I wondered aloud about at which bowling alley filming had taken place.  The Grim Cheaper, who happened to hear me, looked up from his ever-present laptop and said, “That’s Pickwick Bowl – part of Pickwick Gardens – in Burbank.”  Well, I just about fell right off my chair over the fact that he had recognized a filming location (that literally never happens!) and immediately grabbed my iPhone to […]

Mitch Hiller’s House from “Enough”

Jul 18th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One location that I have been absolutely obsessed with for what seems like ages now is the ultra-modern beach house where Mitch Hiller (Billy Campbell) lived in the 2002 thriller Enough – which I just recently discovered is the very same spot that stands in for the exterior of the Indianapolis loft belonging to Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) on fave show Parks and Recreation. Mike had long known where the property was located thanks to a former co-worker of his whose husband was on the […]
