The Canadian Ambassador’s Residence from “Argo”

Jan 22nd, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Last week, while scanning through Argo to make screen captures for my post on the Veterans Affairs Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center in North Hills, which stood in for the Tehran American Embassy in the flick, I got completely sucked in and had to force myself to turn the thing off.  Then, the Grim Cheaper and I wound up watching the entire movie over again for the second time just a few nights later.  Needless to say, I love, love, LOVE the film and cannot recommend […]



Katie’s House from “The Ring”

Oct 9th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While doing research on the Malibou Lake residence that stood in for the office of Doctor Grasnik (Jane Alexander) in the thriller The Ring, I came across a page on fave website Washington State Film Locations which stated that the supposed Seattle-area house where Katie (Amber Tamblyn) lived – and died – in the 2002 flick was actually located in Hancock Park.  Well, believe you me, I just about fell off my chair upon learning the information as I had always thought that particular abode […]



The “Some Kind of Wonderful” Party House

May 7th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While I was stalking Steff’s mansion from Pretty in Pink, which I blogged about last Thursday, fellow stalker Mike, from MovieShotsLA, texted me to let me know that the party house from another classic John Hughes-penned ‘80s movie, 1987’s Some Kind of Wonderful, was located literally just around the corner on Hudson Avenue.  So I, of course, dragged the Grim Cheaper right on over there to stalk the place.  I have to admit that I had actually not seen Some Kind of Wonderful in years, […]



Steff’s House from “Pretty in Pink”

May 3rd, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

This past Saturday afternoon, a fellow stalker named “Pookie” posted a comment on my site in which she mentioned that the mansion where Steff (James Spader) lived in 1986’s Pretty in Pink was located just up the street from the the Residence of the Los Angeles British Consuls-General where Kate Middleton and Prince William stayed in July 2011, which I blogged about last month.  As it turns out, Pookie’s parents live right around the corner from the Pretty in Pink dwelling and she was lucky […]



Chateau LeMoine from “Southland”

Apr 25th, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

A few months ago, Mike, from MovieShotsLA, posted some photographs on his site of Chateau LeMoine, an uh-ma-zing castle-like property that was featured in the Season 3 episode of Southland (his favorite television series, second only, of course, to Beverly Hills, 90210) titled “Cop or Not”.  And while I have never watched Southland, I became majorly obsessed with the fabulously unique home.  So, a couple of weeks back, while on our way to stalk Franc’s wedding coordinator office from Father of the Bride, which I […]



AFI’s Warner Bros. Building – aka the Hospital from “The Artist”

Mar 28th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another locale from The Artist that I found thanks to John Bengtson’s fabulous Silent Locations blog was the Warner Bros. Building on the American Film Institute campus in Los Feliz, which stood in for the exterior of the hospital where George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) was admitted after being injured in a fire towards the end of the Academy Award-winning flick.  Amazingly enough, despite the fact that I have lived in Southern California for over twelve years now, for whatever reason, while I had heard of […]



Judge Crawford’s House from “Fracture”

Dec 7th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

After tracking down the hilltop abode Willy Beachum (aka cutie Ryan Gosling) called home in fave movie Fracture, which I blogged about last Tuesday, I became just a wee bit obsessed with finding the large brick mansion where Judge Gardner (aka Bob Gunton) lived in the flick.  Even though the dwelling showed up only briefly in the movie, because it was pretty much the only location I had yet to track down, I was absolutely itching to find it.  The fabulously extensive Fracture production notes […]



The “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” House

Oct 25th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of weeks ago, while perusing through Chris Epting’s Marilyn Monroe Dyed Here: More Locations of America’s Pop Culture Landmarks in order to get a little inspiration for my Haunted Hollywood postings, I came across an entry about the home used in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? I had actually never before seen the 1962 classic and, up until reading the blurb in Epting’s book in which he described it as being “creepy”, did not realize the movie was of the thriller/horror genre.  […]



The “Eye for an Eye” House

Aug 11th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of months ago, my good friend and fellow stalker Lavonna asked me to track down the supposed Pacific-Palisades-area residence where the McCann family – Karen (aka Sally Field), Mack (aka Ed Harris), Julie (aka Olivia Burnette, who also played Dorothy Jane Torkelson on The Torkelsons, one of my very favorite television series ever, but I digress), and Megan (aka Alexandra Kyle) – lived in the 1996 revenge thriller Eye for an Eye.  Amazingly enough, even though I absolutely LOVE me some revenge thrillers, […]



Liam Court’s House from “90210”

Apr 4th, 2011 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

This past Thursday afternoon, while out running some errands in the Hancock Park area, I decided to do a little stalking of the residence where Liam Court (aka cutie Matt Lanter – sigh!) lives on fave show 90210.  I found this location thanks to Geoff at the 90210 Locations website who posted the information way back in October of 2009.  And even though I do seriously love me some Matt Lanter, for whatever reason it took me almost a year and half to get out […]
