The “One Hour Photo” House

Oct 9th, 2017 | By | Category: Haunted Hollywood, Movie Locations

Today’s location is not spooky – at all, in fact.  It’s actually quite exquisite.  But it did figure rather heavily in the creepiest scene from one of the creepiest movies I’ve ever seen, so I thought it would only be fitting to include it in my Haunted Hollywood postings.  I am talking about the contemporary residence where the Yorkin family – Will (Michael Vartan), Nina (Connie Nielsen) and Jakob (Dylan Smith) – lived in One Hour Photo.  I first got interested in tracking down the […]

The “Empty Nest” House

Mar 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Michael's Guest Posts

Today’s post is a looooooong-time coming, friends! Easily the location I get asked to track down most often is the supposed Miami, Florida-area house where Dr. Harry Weston (Richard Mulligan) lived on the television series Empty Nest. I have searched for the contemporary two-story residence off-and-on over the years, but never had any luck.  I even got fellow stalkers Mike, from MovieShotsLA, Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, and Michael, our resident Brady Bunch aficionado/guest poster extraordinaire, in on the hunt, but we […]

The “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” Race Home Locations

Feb 6th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

It’s five minutes until six and everybody’s favorite truant, Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick), has to beat his parents home lest they find out that he has cut school for the ninth time! (“I don’t remember him being sick nine times!”) So begins one of the most famous sequences in all of moviedom, the race home from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Though said to take place in Chicago, Ferris’ race home – as well as the rest of the 1986 comedy – was shot in both […]

Nicole Brown Simpson’s Gretna Green House

Jun 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: This and That

You’d think I would be sick of all things O.J. by now, what with the recent airing of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and the many stalkings I’ve done of the various locations associated with it over the past few months (you can read those posts here, here, here, here, and here).  But when my friend Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, mentioned a couple of weeks back that a new five-part documentary about the famous fallen footballer and the […]

The “Life Goes On” House

Mar 11th, 2016 | By | Category: TV Locations

Some locations I spend ages upon ages trying to track down only to discover that, when finally found, they had been listed on another website all along.  D’oh!  Such was the case with today’s locale.  I’ve mentioned before that Life Goes On is one of my all-time favorite television shows.  It is pretty common knowledge amongst stalkers that the Cape Code-style home belonging to the Thatcher family – Drew (Bill Smitrovich), Libby (Patti LuPone), Corky (Chris Burke), Becca (Kellie Martin) and Paige (who was played […]

Nicole Simpson’s Condo from “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”

Mar 7th, 2016 | By | Category: TV Locations

Today’s location is one of the most interesting that I’ve ever uncovered!  As I mentioned in Friday’s post about O.J. Simpson’s mansion from The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story (which proved to be rather timely considering the “buried knife” story that was released that same day), the Grim Cheaper and I are hooked on the new FX series.  Once I tracked down O.J.’s pad from the show, I set out to find the site that stood in for Nicole Brown Simpson’s condo.  And […]

The “Lizzie McGuire” House

Jul 8th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

Though I am unabashedly a tween at heart, one show that I never got into was Lizzie McGuire.  I have always liked Hilary Duff, so I am unsure of why exactly the show remained off my radar.  Regardless, I was thrilled when a fellow stalker named Gina posted a comment on my site recently letting me know that she had tracked down the house where the titular character lived with her family on the Disney series.  I stopped by to stalk it two weeks ago […]

Liz’s House from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Apr 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

There are two kinds of people in this world – those who can watch movies over and over and over again and those who cannot.  I am in the former category.  During my teens and twenties, my parents owned a condominium in Hawaii.  We would vacation there every summer, along with other families who owned units in the same community.  Our condo was the kids’ hang-out spot (we had a VCR and large movie library) and, for reasons that no longer remain known to me, […]

Hotel Angeleno from “Heat”

Mar 2nd, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I travel back and forth to L.A. so often that sometimes I feel like I live in a hotel – which is not a bad thing, I ADORE hotels.  One that we checked into recently that I absolutely loved was the Hotel Angeleno.  Not only is the place’s architecture unique, vibe spectacularly retro and views breathtaking, but it is also a filming location!  I mean, come on now!  What’s not to love?

Hotel Angeleno was originally constructed in 1970 as the Holiday […]

Inez’s House from “Chef”

Jan 9th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My favorite movie of 2014 was, hands down, The Other Woman.  Running a close second was Chef, which I am guessing many of you have not heard of.  Sadly, it was a bit of a sleeper.  Take my word for it, though, the flick is fabulous.  As are its locations!  But more on that in a minute.  The Grim Cheaper and I first heard about Chef thanks to Carson Daly who talked about it on his morning radio show on 97.1 FM a couple of […]
