The Site of the “A Few Good Men” Crab Restaurant

Jul 21st, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

To paraphrase Dorothy (Judy Garland) in The Wizard of Oz, our heart’s desires can often be found right in our own backyard.  Even though I’ve seen the 1939 film about a gazillion times, I failed to heed Dorothy’s advice while searching for the crab restaurant Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) took Lt. Daniel Kaffee (Tom Cruise) to in fave movie A Few Good Men.  The eatery had long been at the top of my Must-Find List, but because I always assumed it was located […]



St. Elizabeths Hospital from “A Few Good Men”

Jun 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

We all know the scene – a nervous Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) briskly walks across a grassy field toward the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, while, behind her, a large U.S. Marine band playing a rousing rendition of “Semper Fidelis” marches in formation and a Silent Drill Platoon performs an enthralling and precisely-timed exhibition drill.  I am talking about the opening of A Few Good Men, easily one of the most famous segments in all of moviedom.  So I, of course, wanted to stalk St. […]



Sam’s Apartment from “A Few Good Men”

Jun 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

At the risk of saturating my blog with A Few Good Men locations, I’m back today with yet another spot from the 1992 courtroom drama.  (And I still have an additional AFGM locale up my sleeve, which I will be writing about soon.)  Last September, while in Washington, D.C. – where A Few Good Men was set and partially filmed – I dragged the Grim Cheaper, my good friend Nat, her boyfriend Tony, and her mom Marlys (yeah, there was a whole brood of us) […]



Danny’s Apartment from “A Few Good Men”

May 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

It is rare when a movie comes along and changes the course of your life.  For me, one such movie was A Few Good Men.  I walked out of the theatre after first seeing it in 1992 proclaiming that I was going to become a lawyer.  I was 15 at the time – a sophomore in high school.  I spent the next few years convinced that law was my calling, regularly and passionately professing my love of the film and its climatic “I want the […]



The “A Few Good Men” Softball Field

May 22nd, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I don’t know – or care – much about sports.  I do love me some Tom Cruise, though.  So when my friend/fellow stalker Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, sent me his list of Washington, D.C./Philadelphia-area locales prior to my trip back east last September, I was thrilled to see the softball field from the 1992 drama A Few Good Men mentioned.  As noted in his files (which were extensive!), filming of the AFGM softball scenes took place on the baseball fields at […]



Idle Time Books from “A Few Good Men”

Feb 1st, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

There’s pretty much nothing I love more than bookstores.  They run second only to Starbucks and film locations in my book (pun intended).  If I come across a good one, I can get lost amongst the stacks for hours.  So there was no way I was leaving Washington D.C. without checking out Idle Time Books, the quaint District literary shop that made a couple of appearances in A Few Good Men, one of my all-time favorite movies.

Idle Time Books was originally established in 1981 at […]
