I don’t like to think of myself as a brat, but I’d be lying if I did not admit to having brat-like tendencies when it comes to choosing what movie to watch with the Grim Cheaper on any given Saturday night. Typically I veto all of his recommendations straight out of the gate and we wind up watching a flick of my choosing. That was not the case on a recent evening in, though, when the GC had his heart set on viewing the 2016 […]

My friend, fellow stalker Michael, is proving to be a true Brady Bunch virtuoso! Here he is yet again gifting us with yet another fabulous post about the 1969 sitcom – this one a round-up of nine different locales featured on the series! Take it away, Michael!
I know, I know. Yet another Brady guest post foisted upon you. I swear, I do know how to find non-Brady locations. However, I had compiled a bunch of Brady Bunch establishing shot sites that I hadn’t seen posted […]
The Grim Cheaper and I are absolutely hooked on the new FX series The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which is not surprising considering we have both been fascinated with the case since the beginning – as has the rest of the world. While watching the first episode, titled “From the Ashes of Tragedy,” I was shocked to see the real life former home of Robert Kardashian playing the role of itself. I stalked and blogged about the residence back in 2013 and […]
In researching today’s post, I put in several hours scanning through countless Season 1 and Season 2 episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210. Time well spent as far as I’m concerned! This was all due to a comment left on my blog last October by a reader named Vanessa Laine who said that the now defunct Lake View Medical Center in Lakeview Terrace was the hospital that appeared in Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead. I immediately got to perusing the internet for more information […]
Be sure to check out today’s Los Angeles magazine post – about the Playboy Mansion’s many appearances onscreen and the 89th birthday of its famous owner. My articles typically get published in the late morning/early afternoon hours.
Even though I am a definite child of the ‘80s, for whatever reason I had never seen the 1986 Rodney Dangerfield classic Back to School until late last year. I wound up loving the flick and immediately started researching its locations. I covered a few of them in a September post for Los Angeles magazine, but one that I could just not seem to track down was the mansion belonging to “Tall and Fat” clothing store owner Thornton Melon (Dangerfield). I finally enlisted fellow stalker […]
This past weekend, while wandering through my local Target with the Grim Cheaper, I happened to spot a DVD of fave movie The Holiday on sale for $3.99! When I saw that the special features included a commentary with director Nancy Meyers and a making-of featurette, I just about flipped my lid and immediately snapped the DVD up. (Though I have seen The Holiday more times than I can count, because I own it on iTunes, I had never seen any of the special features.) […]
Boulevard of broken dreams – that phrase pops into my head every time I venture down Hollywood Boulevard and see the men and woman costumed as super heroes or movie stars charging tourists to take a photograph with them. I can’t imagine it is what anyone who sets out for Los Angeles hopes to do and is a reminder of the sad turn a life in show business can take. Even those who gain notoriety at some point in their career are not immune to […]
While out and about stalking in Beverly Hills two weeks ago, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, took me on a minor detour to see the mansion where movie star Martin Weir (Danny DeVito) lived in the 1995 comedy Get Shorty. I LOVE the scene that took place at Martin’s pad, so I was beyond excited to finally be seeing it in person.
Towards the beginning of Get Shorty, Chili Palmer (John Travolta) enlists the help of Martin’s ex-wife, Karen Flores (Rene Russo), in the hopes that she can […]
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, fellow stalker E.J., from The Movieland Directory website, recently published an e-book about Old Hollywood titled Unscripted: Hollywood Back-Stories, Volume 1 (which you can purchase on Nook here and on Kindle here). I read the entire tome – which was fascinating, by the way – in two nights, highlighter and stalking notebook in hand, and, of course, accumulated quite a few new addresses to add to my ever-growing To-Stalk list – the most notable of which was […]
