Tracey Ross from “Beverly Hills, 90210”

Dec 15th, 2015 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

‘Tis finally the season – the season for holiday-themed filming locations!  As is the case every year, because Christmas locales in the L.A. area are rather limited, I waited to start blogging about them until the end of December.  And I should mention here that my postings over the next two or three weeks will be fairly limited, as well, due to some holiday events and trips that I have planned, including a shopping visit to L.A.  (I can’t wait!  There’s no shopping like L.A. […]

Westfield Culver City from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Nov 24th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Some filming locations are maddeningly elusive.  One that remained a thorn in my side for ages was the mall where Janey Glenn (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Lynne Stone (Helen Hunt) shopped in Girls Just Want to Have Fun, which, for those who haven’t been paying attention over the years, is one of my all-time favorite movies.  Thanks to some help from my friends Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, and Michael, of The Brady Bunch’s Golden Spoon fame, I was finally able to […]

The California Bank Building from “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”

Jun 3rd, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Since we’re on the subject of Girls Just Want to Have Fun, I thought I would blog about another locale from the movie that I recently hit up – downtown L.A.’s California Bank Building, which masked as the Dance TV (aka DTV) studio in the 1985 flick.  A couple of years back, Chas, from the It’sFilmedThere website, managed to track down the location via a helpful crewmember, but because nothing about the structure matched up to what was shown onscreen, I was never sold on […]

The “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” Park

Jun 2nd, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s post was a true labor of love – one that required stalking a location three separate times and a massive amount of help from a fellow stalker named Michael.  While most of the locales from the 1985 movie Girls Just Want to Have Fun (one of my all-time faves) have been tracked down and detailed on this blog, one that I have long wondered about is the park where portions of the dance practice montage sequence took place.  As luck would have it, I […]

Malibu Café at Calamigos Ranch

Aug 11th, 2014 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I recently headed out to the ‘Bu to grab a bite to eat at the Malibu Café at Calamigos Ranch and walked away with not only a new favorite restaurant, but an addition to my Must-Stalk List.  Mike, from MovieShotsLA, had told me about Calamigos Ranch years ago because of its appearance in a couple of Beverly Hills, 90210 episodes.  And though it took me a while to stalk the place, it was definitely worth the wait.

Calamigos Ranch was founded in […]

The Donna Martin Graduates Protest Site

Mar 28th, 2014 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

As big of a Beverly Hills, 90210 fan as I am, it will probably come as a shock to learn that up until recently I had yet to stalk the spot where one of the show’s most iconic moments was filmed – Burbank City Hall, aka the Donna Martin Graduates protest site from the Season 3 episode titled “Something in the Air.”  So, since I was in the area recently stalking The Wonder Years houses (you can read those posts here and here), I decided […]

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 […]

The Former Site of the Roxbury

Apr 2nd, 2012 | By | Category: This and That

In honor of my girl Shannen Doherty’s new reality series, Shannen Says, which premieres next Tuesday (can’t wait!), I thought I would blog today about one of the actress’ famed hangouts from her Beverly Hills, 90210 days – the Roxbury in West Hollywood.  Back when I was a teenager and knee-deep in my 90210 obsession (ah, who am I kidding, I am still knee-deep in it!), I clamored for any and all magazines featuring the show’s stars.  I would practically drool while reading of their […]

La Villa Consolata – The Day Spa from the “Driven” Episode of “CSI: Miami”

Feb 2nd, 2012 | By | Category: TV Locations

Back in January, a fellow stalker named Brandi left a comment on my post about the mansion from The Beverly Hillbillies movie informing me that the property’s indoor spa had not actually been used in the Season 4 episode of CSI: Miami titled “Driven”, as I had originally presumed, but that that spa could actually be found at a different ostentatious estate, this one on Mapleton Drive in Beverly Hills.  One quick online search and I discovered that Brandi was, indeed, correct and I immediately […]

The “Mommie Dearest” House

Oct 31st, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Before I get started, I would like to wish all of my fellow stalkers a VERY happy Halloween!  And while I will, of course, be posting pics of me and the Grim Cheaper in costume, because I always write my blogs at least one day ahead of time, I will not be able to do so until later this week.  It is for that reason that I will be extending my Haunted Hollywood postings through Wednesday, which is a good thing as I am having […]
