Martin Weir’s Mansion from “Get Shorty”

Jul 14th, 2014 | By | Category: Movie Locations

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 […]

Crossroads of the World from “Dexter”

Feb 15th, 2011 | By | Category: TV Locations

Before I get started, I’d like to give a big birthday shout-out to my beloved Grandma, who turns 86 today.  Happy Birthday, Grandma!  I love you!  And now, on with the post!  One location that I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to stalk while in the Hollywood area a few weeks back was Crossroads of the World, a historic Hollywood landmark which was featured in the Season 5 episode of Dexter titled “Practically Perfect”, among numerous other productions, including L.A. Confidential and Indecent Proposal.  I had […]

The Parking Garage from “Twins”

Nov 22nd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last weekend, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to the city of Glendale to do some stalking of the historic Alex Theatre, where the cast of Glee was recently spotted doing some filming for this year’s “Sectionals” episode which is set to air on December 7th.  After finishing up at the theatre (which I will be blogging about after the episode of Glee premieres), we headed a few blocks up the street to stalk the parking garage where Al Greco (aka a very young David […]

The Beverly Hills Courthouse – Where Lindsay Lohan Was Sentenced

Jul 13th, 2010 | By | Category: This and That

Last Thursday morning, my fiancé and I ventured out to the Beverly Hills Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office to obtain our marriage license.  Because the license application listed the address of the office as “9355 Burton Way, First Floor, Beverly Hills”, I assumed we would be going to some sort of government building.  So, imagine my surprise when we pulled up to the Beverly Hills Municipal Courthouse – the exact spot where Lindsay Lohan had been sentenced to 90 days in jail just two days prior!  As […]

The “Twins” Mansion

Aug 21st, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another day, another Twins  location.    Unbelievably, before writing my post about the Twins house yesterday, I had yet to actually see the movie. For some reason, even though we own a copy of it on DVD, I had never sat down to watch it.  Until yesterday, that is.  But, as often happens to me when watching a movie for the first time, I got more absorbed in the locations and behind-the-scenes information than the actual storyline.  I kept having to pause the movie to run to my computer to look things up.  LOL  […]

The “Twins” House

Aug 20th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few weeks ago, fellow stalker Owen asked for my help in locating Danny DeVito’s Mediteranean style home from the 1988 comedy Twins.  Owen had already done quite a bit of stalking legwork on this one and had managed to contact one of the movie’s crew members who told him that the house was located on a numbered street near Montana Avenue in Santa Monica.  Unfortunately, though, due to the fact that many of the numbered streets in Santa Monica aren’t featured in Google Maps Street View, Owen was not able to cyberstalk the […]
