The Actors Studio – Marilyn Monroe’s Former Acting School

Aug 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations

There is pretty much nothing I love more than re-creating famous movie/television scenes and iconic photographs – as most of you well know!  Though I had long been obsessed with the notable series of images of Marilyn Monroe taken in front of The Actors Studio in New York in the ‘50s, due to the fact that the legendary school moved no less than five times during its early days, I could never figure out exactly where the shoot had occurred.  I poked around the facility’s […]

Villa Primavera – The “In a Lonely Place” Apartment Building

Oct 24th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While doing research on the Double Indemnity house, which I blogged about a couple of weeks ago, I came across some information about Villa Primavera – a courtyard-style apartment building that was featured in the 1950 film noir classic In a Lonely Place.  I immediately became intrigued with the West-Hollywood-area building due to an anecdote that was listed on the movie’s IMDB trivia page.  Apparently, In a Lonely Place director Nicholas Ray had lived at Villa Primavera upon first moving to Southern California in the […]

The Julien’s Auctions Hollywood Legends Exhibition

May 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: This and That

This past Saturday afternoon I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to stalk the Hollywood Legends exhibition currently being hosted by Julien’s Auctions, a Beverly Hills-area auction house which specializes in entertainment memorabilia, celebrity artifacts, and high-profile estates.  Prior to each auction it hosts, Julien’s opens up its exhibition hall to the public offering them a free and extremely rare opportunity to view unique and priceless Hollywood memorabilia in an exceptionally up-close-and-personal manner, which I  think is just about the coolest thing ever!  For those who […]

The “Six Feet Under” Flower Shop – One of the Last Places James Dean Was Seen Alive

Dec 17th, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

I promise to get back to my wedding blogging in the near future, but for today I thought I’d do a post about a location that I stalked this past weekend – the Blossom d’Amour flower shop where Ruth Fisher (aka Frances Conroy) worked on the hit HBO television series Six Feet Under.  While doing some research on the Fisher & Sons Funeral Home from the series, which I blogged about back in October, I came across the IMDB trivia page for the show which […]

The Griffith Park Merry Go Round from “The Mentalist”

Oct 21st, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

One location that I have wanted to stalk for almost two years now, ever since November of 2008 when it appeared in the Season One episode of The Mentalist titled “Seeing Red”, was the merry go round where Patrick Jane (aka Simon Baker) lured murder suspect Travis Tennant (aka Noel Fisher).  The only problem was that I had absolutely NO idea whatsoever where to find it, as in my ten-plus years of living in Southern California the only merry go round that I had ever […]

Griffith Observatory

Sep 14th, 2010 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

A couple of months ago I dragged my parents and my then-fiancé/now husband out to Los Feliz to do some stalking of the Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park – a place which I had never before visited despite having lived in Los Angeles for over a decade.  I had actually wanted to stalk the Observatory for close to 18 years –  ever since November of 1992, to be exact – thanks to the fact that it was featured in a Season 3 episode of fave […]
