Melrose Avenue from “L.A. Story”

Dec 10th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another L.A. Story location that has been waiting patiently in my stalking backlog is the block of Melrose Avenue where Harris K. Telemacher (Steve Martin) and Sara McDowel (Victoria Tennant) walked and talked after attending a fundraiser for a private art museum in the 1991 flick.  Unfortunately though, because the movie was lensed over twenty years ago and that area of Melrose has changed quite a bit during the interim, I am unsure of the exact spot where filming took place.  But I sure did […]

The Former KCET Studios from “L.A. Story”

Dec 9th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While perusing through my extensive backlog of stalking photographs recently, I realized that there were a few L.A. Story locales that I had yet to blog about, one of which was the former site of KCET Studios in Los Feliz, where Harris K. Telemacher (Steve Martin) worked in the 1991 comedy.  I had actually stalked the spot way back in May, but, for whatever reason, never got around to writing about it.  So here goes.

The 4.5-acre lot located at 4401 Sunset Boulevard in Los Feliz […]

The Stuart Building from “That Thing You Do!”

Nov 19th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Back in early October, upon returning home from doing some That Thing You Do! stalking in Orange (you can read my posts on the locations I stalked here, here and here), I popped in my DVD of the 1996 flick to re-watch it for the first time in years.  I was absolutely shocked – and floored – to discover in the course of the viewing that The Stuart at Sierra Madre Villa, an architecturally-stunning Pasadena apartment complex that I toured while house-hunting in 2006, had […]

Watson Drugs and Soda Fountain from “That Thing You Do!”

Nov 7th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another That Thing You Do! locale that I dragged the Grim Cheaper out to stalk while the two of us were in the city of Orange in early October was Watson Drugs and Soda Fountain, which popped up twice in the 1996 flick.  And while I really wanted to grab a bite there, sadly the GC and I had just eaten prior to arriving in Orange.  It was still extremely cool to see the place, which is Orange County’s oldest drugstore and the city of […]

Patterson’s Appliances from “That Thing You Do!”

Nov 6th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

After stalking the downtown Orange spot where the That Thing You Do! mailbox scene was filmed (which I blogged about yesterday), I dragged the Grim Cheaper just a few feet south to stalk the storefront that was used as Patterson’s Appliances, drummer Guy Patterson’s (Tom Everett Scott) family’s shop, in the 1996 flick.  Thank goodness for the Seeing Stars website and its That Thing You Do! filming locations page, which had the address of Patterson’s Appliances listed, because, as I mentioned yesterday, my trip to […]

The “That Thing You Do!” Mailbox Scene

Nov 5th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Well folks, this post sadly marks the end to my 2013 Haunted Hollywood locales, which is especially depressing because this year was easily the Best. Halloween. Ever.  Once again, the GC and I (dressed up as The Bachelorette’s Emily Maynard and Jef Holm) headed out to our friends’ house in Malibu.  (And yes, I am aware that Emily and Jef are no longer together, but neither are Brenda and Dylan and we dressed up like them, too, one Halloween. 😉 )   Dick Van Dyke ended up […]

Angeles Abbey Memorial Park from “Alias”

Oct 21st, 2013 | By | Category: TV Locations

Today’s locale is one of my favorite Haunted Hollywood locations ever!  Way back in January 2012, fellow stalker Gilles from France sent me an email asking for some help in tracking down a mosque-like structure that stood in for a Moroccan airport in the Season 1 episode of Alias titled “A Broken Heart.”  Gilles included some screen captures in his email and, upon first glance, I guessed that the place was most likely a cemetery.  So I did a quick Google search for a mosque-like […]

Liberace’s Valley House from “Behind the Candelabra”

Sep 18th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned last month in my post about Sherman Way Adult Books from Behind the Candelabra (which you can read here), back in May fellow stalker E.J., of the Movieland Directory website, challenged me to find several locales from the HBO biopic including the L.A.-area home belonging to Liberace (Michael Douglas).  It was never made entirely clear where exactly in Los Angeles the house was meant to be located in the flick, but I believe that it was supposed to the pianist’s San Fernando […]

The Hyatt Regency Valencia from “Little Miss Sunshine”

Sep 5th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A couple of months ago, the Grim Cheaper and I sat down to re-watch fave 2006 dramedy Little Miss Sunshine and I just about fell out of my chair when I spotted the Hyatt Regency Valencia pop up in a brief scene.  I had actually stalked and blogged about the Santa Clarita-area hotel way back in November 2009 (you can read that post here) due to its appearance in Twilight.  Because the post was fairly brief, though, and had been published during the early days of […]

The Derby Restaurant from “Step Brothers”

Aug 16th, 2013 | By | Category: Movie Locations

During a recent visit to Los Angeles, the Grim Cheaper and I stayed at an Arcadia hotel that just so happened to be located right across the street from a nine-decades old eatery that I had always wanted to stalk – The Derby Restaurant, which was featured in the 2008 comedy Step Brothers.  As y’all know, this stalker absolutely loves herself any location with a history!  So I dragged the GC right on over there to partake of what turned out to be a fabulous […]
