Amanda’s House from “The Holiday”

Jun 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I thought I’d mix it up a bit today by forgoing blogging about one of the many Pacific Northwest locations that I stalked while in Vancouver and Seattle two weeks ago, in order to write about a residence that can be found right here in the San Gabriel Valley – the mansion which belonged to Amanda (aka Cameron Diaz) in the 2006 romantic comedy The Holiday.  I found this location thanks to fellow stalker Nick, who had done some research on the subject and had […]

The Drug Store and Beauty Salon from “Beautiful Girls”

May 13th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Stillwater location that I was incredibly excited about stalking was the drugstore where Gina Barrisano (aka Rosie O’Donnell) spewed a very choicely-worded rant at Willie Conway (aka Timothy Hutton) and Tommy “Birdman” Rowland (aka Matt Dillon) over their superficial treatment of women in fave movie Beautiful Girls.  Fellow stalker Owen had actually managed to track down this locale – and Willie and Marty’s houses, come to think of it – long before getting his hands on the flick’s master location list, which I talked […]

The Standard Hotel Rooftop Bar in Downtown Los Angeles

Feb 2nd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another Fracture filming location that I recently stalked – without actually realizing it – was the Standard Hotel’s Rooftop Bar in Downtown L.A.  I say “without actually realizing it” because at the time I stalked the place I had no idea it was a filming location.   I ended up there while on the way to the Los Angeles airport where I was dropping off my good friends from Switzerland who were flying home after a two week visit.  I thought it would be nice to […]

George’s 50’s Diner from “A Cinderella Story”

Jan 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another location at the very top of my Long Beach “To Stalk” list was the restaurant where Hilary Duff worked in fave teeny-bopper movie A Cinderella Story.  In real life, that restaurant is known as George’s 50’s Diner and it is one of the last remaining diners of its kind in all of California.  George’s Diner, which was originally named Grissinger’s Drive-In, first opened up in 1952.  It was designed by architect Wayne McAllister, who also designed the famous Sands Casino in Las  Vegas.   In […]

The Kenaston Residence

Jan 7th, 2010 | By | Category: This and That

Even though I have always been one hundred percent on Team Aniston – I even have the sweatshirt to prove it  😉 – while visiting Palm Springs during Halloween weekend a few months back I became a bit obsessed with stalking the home where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie posed for their famous “Domestic Bliss” photo spread which appeared in the July 2005 issue of W Magazine.  It all started a few days before Halloween when I came across the following People Magazine article while […]

Heidi and Spencer’s New House

Nov 24th, 2009 | By | Category: The Hills Filming Locations

Ever since Season 5, Part II of The Hills premiered back in September, I have been getting email requests to locate the house Spencer and Heidi moved into in the debut episode which was entitled “It’s On Bitch”.   Thankfully, fellow stalker Virginie tracked down the duo’s new home pretty much immediately after the episode aired and posted a comment on my site which included the house’s address and a link to it’s former real estate website.  YAY!  Thank you,  Virginie!  Anyway, because I’ve been knee-deep […]

Marilyn Monroe’s Catalina House

Aug 28th, 2009 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

The most important item on my Catalina Island stalking list was the home where a very young Marilyn Monroe lived with her first husband James Dougherty during the years 1943 to 1944.  This was long before Miss Monroe became a Hollywood icon and household name, back when she was just a girl who was known simply as Norma Jeane Baker.  Norma married James in 1942 at the tender ago of 16.  Yes, you read that right – 16!!!  The family who was taking care of her at the time was moving out […]

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  […]
