The British Consulate from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Jul 15th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Much of my free time as of late has been spent tracking down missing locations from Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  Ever since writing my post on the apartment where Terry Dolittle (Whoopi Goldberg) lived in the 1986 comedy, I have been just a wee bit consumed with finding other spots featured in the flick.  So much so that I even purchased director Penny Marshall’s 2012 autobiography in the hopes that it might shed some light on the subject.  One locale that I did not need to […]



Terry’s Apartment from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Jul 6th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I’ve made no secret over the years of my love for Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  (You can read the posts I’ve done on the 1986 comedy’s locations here, here, here, and here.)  Whoopi Goldberg is literally perfection in her role as zany New York bank employee Terry Dolittle and I pretty much go around quoting her and the other characters on a regular basis (“Get Larry, the heavy-set guard!  Get Larry, the heavy-set guard!”).  So when a fellow stalker named Mick emailed me in July 2013 […]



The Pasadena Main Branch of Bank of the West from “Falcon Crest”

Nov 13th, 2015 | By | Category: TV Locations

For years now, I have been trying to track down the bank where Terry Dolittle (Whoopi Goldberg) worked in the 1986 comedy Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  It is one of those locations that always sits fixed at the back of my mind, images of it constantly floating around in my head.  So when I came across photographs of the Pasadena Main Branch of Bank of the West, which bears a striking resemble to the bank where Terry worked, on a Noirish Los Angeles forum, my heart […]



Liz’s House from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Apr 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

There are two kinds of people in this world – those who can watch movies over and over and over again and those who cannot.  I am in the former category.  During my teens and twenties, my parents owned a condominium in Hawaii.  We would vacation there every summer, along with other families who owned units in the same community.  Our condo was the kids’ hang-out spot (we had a VCR and large movie library) and, for reasons that no longer remain known to me, […]



Greystone Mansion

May 7th, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While most mansions in Beverly Hills are well hidden from prying eyes thanks to tall gates and large trees, there is one that is open to the public on a regular basis and it’s called Greystone Mansion. The 46,000 square foot mansion was commissioned in 1928 by millionaire Edward L. Doheny as a gift to his son Edward “Ned” Doheny, Jr. Ned only lived in the home for four short months before he was found dead in his bedroom, along with his secretary Hugh […]
