Lou Glutz Motors from “Vacation”

Nov 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Fellow stalker Owen, of the When Write Is Wrong blog, recently embarked upon a mission to try to track down some of the unknown locations from one of his favorite movies, the 1983 classic Vacation.  He had quite a bit of success, too, managing to pinpoint two elusive spots, one of which was the Norwalk motel where Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) skinny-dipped with The Girl in the Ferrari (Christie Brinkley) – a place I was absolutely dying to stalk while in L.A. two weeks […]

Grand Central Air Terminal from “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure”

Sep 27th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While doing research for yesterday’s post (which you can read here), I came across a page on IMDB that stated that the bus station scene from Pee-wee’s Big Adventure was filmed at the Glendale Amtrak Station.  I knew from previous cyber-stalking, though, that the Pee-wee bus station scene was actually filmed a few miles north of the Amtrak depot at the now-defunct Grand Central Air Terminal (a location that I first learned about way back in March 2011 while writing my post on the nearby […]

The Glendale Amtrak Station from “Bulletproof”

Sep 26th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I don’t know about y’all, but this stalker is so darn excited for Halloween that I am practically bursting at the seams!  I have already decorated my apartment with all things orange and black (much to the Grim Cheaper’s chagrin) and can hardly wait for Monday when I can begin my Haunted Hollywood postings.  Only three more days to go!  Yay!    Anyway, while going through some stalking photographs from earlier this year, I came across pictures of the Glendale Amtrak Station that the GC […]

Clark Magnet High School from “Our House”

Jul 13th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

Back in March, a fellow stalker named Bill contacted me to ask for some help in tracking down the high school that Kris Witherspoon (my girl Shannen Doherty) attended in the 1986 television series Our House.  In his email, Bill included the links to several episodes of the series on YouTube (because it is maddeningly not yet available on DVD!), but the large brick structure did not look at all familiar to me.  So I called up Mike, from MovieShotsLA, and asked if he happened […]

Red Carpet Wine & Spirits from “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”

Jun 19th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks ago, a fellow stalker named Emily wrote a comment on my post about the Weaver house from fave movie Crazy, Stupid, Love. in which she informed me that the liquor store that appeared in the flick was Red Carpet Wine & Spirits (what a great name!) in Glendale.  As fate would have it, I had been looking for that wine shop for what seemed like ages and could NOT have been more excited to read Emily’s comment.  So I dragged the […]

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 Glen Capri Inn & Suites from “The Good Girl”

Oct 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Jennifer Aniston Locations, Movie Locations

A few weeks ago, I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to stalk the Glen Capri Inn & Suites – a historic and oft-filmed Glendale-area motel that has appeared in over twenty movie and television productions in the past six years alone.  I was most interested in stalking the property due to its appearance in the 2002 flick The Good Girl, which starred my girl Jen Aniston.  And even though I didn’t like The Good Girl AT ALL (it was just far too dark and depressing […]

The Schaffer Residence from “A Single Man”

Sep 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks ago, I dragged my new husband out to stalk an architecturally and cinematically famous house located in Glendale at the base of the Verdugo Mountains – the John Lautner-designed Schaffer Residence which appeared in fashion designer Tom Ford’s directorial debut, A Single Man.  I found this location thanks to fellow stalker Gary from England, who immediately set about cyberstalking the residence after watching the flick back in February of this year.  And even though I’ve never actually seen A Single Man […]

The Christmas Vacation Mansion

Jul 27th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last week I did something that I am almost too ashamed to admit to on this forum.  I, Lindsay Blake of, actually spent about two hours searching for a filming location that I – are you sitting down for this – HAD ALREADY FOUND!  LOL LOL LOL I’m not kidding!!!!  I guess I truly am a blonde!  Ever since fellow stalker Owen tracked down the Griswold house from fave movie National Lampoon’s Vacation, I have wanted to find the mansion which stood in for Clark’s boss, Frank Shirley’s, house in […]
