Beeman Park from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Feb 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I often get asked if I think that someday down the road I might run out of places that I am passionate about stalking.  That is like asking if I will ever tire of shopping!  The answer is a definitive no!  As long as movies and TV shows continue to be made, this girl will continue a’stalking, passionately so!  Heck, even if Hollywood did cease churning out new films and television series, my To-Stalk List would remain full.  I am constantly discovering new-to-me productions that […]

The “WarGames” 7-Eleven

Feb 12th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I am not a spontaneous person by nature.  I much prefer planning things out, especially when it comes to vacations.  Typically when going on a trip, I investigate any and all filming that has been done in the area we are heading to.  As I mentioned in Monday’s post, though, our Big Bear Lake getaway last week was completely last minute.  So much so that I was unable to do any sort of location research beforehand, which is a shame being that not only has […]

The “Say Anything . . . ” Amphitheatre

Feb 3rd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Sorry to have been MIA the past couple of days.  The Grim Cheaper surprised me on Sunday morning with a two-night trip to Big Bear to play in the snow.  We had an absolute blast scurrying around in the frost and even managed to get some stalking in!  I will be blogging about those locations soon, but in the meantime, on with today’s post!  My recent Say Anything . . . kick is showing no signs of waning.  As of late, I have been working […]

Mr. Hart’s Mansion from “Nine to Five”

Dec 3rd, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One of my favorite movies growing up was the 1980 comedy Nine to Five.  I would watch it on an almost daily basis (no joke!) and practically had the thing memorized.  I can still belt out the theme song to this day, in fact.  (I am guessing the majority of my fellow stalkers can, too.)  A couple of weeks ago, while rummaging through our DVD collection, I happened to come across the flick and realized I had not seen it in years, so I immediately […]

The Town House Motel from “Vacation”

Dec 2nd, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned in last Wednesday’s post, fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, recently got on a kick of tracking down missing locations from his all-time favorite comedy, the 1983 classic National Lampoon’s Vacation.  One of the locales he managed to find was the Town House Motel in Glendale, where Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) and his family – wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), son Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and daughter Audrey (Beverly Hills, 90210’s Dana Barron) – spent the first night […]

Lou Glutz Motors from “Vacation”

Nov 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, recently embarked upon a mission to try to track down some of the unknown locations from one of his favorite movies, the 1983 classic Vacation.  He had quite a bit of success, too, managing to pinpoint two elusive spots, one of which was the Norwalk motel where Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) skinny-dipped with The Girl in the Ferrari (Christie Brinkley) – a place I was absolutely dying to stalk while in L.A. two weeks […]

Dean’s House from “License to Drive”

Sep 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For no particular reason and seemingly out of the blue, I got on a License to Drive kick a couple of weeks ago and was absolutely floored to come across a page on fellow stalker Geoff’s 90210Locations website that detailed almost all of the locales featured in the movie.  The only spot missing was the Shakey’s Pizza Parlor where Les Anderson (Corey Haim), Dean (Corey Feldman), Charles (Michael Manasseri), and Mercedes Lane (Heather Graham) wound up after almost getting into a car accident in the […]

The “Troop Beverly Hills” House

Aug 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks ago, fellow stalker Mikey, from the Mike the Fanboy website, mentioned that he had recently stalked the residence belonging to the Nefler family – Phyllis (aka Shelley Long), Freddy (aka Craig T. Nelson), and their daughter, Hannah (aka Jenny Lewis) – in the 1989 comedy Troop Beverly Hills.  Well, let me tell you, after hearing that I literally just about had a heart attack!  TROOP BEVERLY HILLS? TROOP BEVERLY HILLS!  How in the heck had I forgotten about that movie??  I […]
