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 […]



Blockbuster Video from “The Holiday”

Dec 23rd, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I cannot believe that Christmas is only two days away!  This whole month (year, in fact) has flown by!  Sadly, this will be my last post of the season (excluding one that will run on L.A. magazine’s website on Thursday).  I will be taking the rest of the week off to do some last-minute shopping and to celebrate Christmas with my family.  For my final holiday-themed post, I thought it would only be fitting to write about another The Holiday location – the Blockbuster Video […]



Sloane’s House from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

Dec 10th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Once the pizza parlor from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off had been found, my friend Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, starting hunting for the home belonging to Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) – one of the last unknown locations from the 1986 comedy.  We had known for a while, thanks to a helpful crew member, that the residence was not in Chicago, where much of the movie was lensed, but Los Angeles.  In looking for it, though, we always came up empty-handed.  Then last […]



Regular Jon’s Pizza from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”

Dec 9th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Fellow stalker Chas, of the It’sFilmedThere website, recently texted me to let me know he had tracked down a location that I had been curious about for what seemed like forever – the pizza parlor from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.  Thanks to John Hughes’ DVD commentary of the flick, I knew that the restaurant was once in Brentwood and was no longer in operation, but I still desperately wanted to find its former location.  So I was thrilled to receive Chas’ text and ran right […]
