St. Elizabeths Hospital from “A Few Good Men”

Jun 5th, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

We all know the scene – a nervous Lt. Cdr. JoAnne Galloway (Demi Moore) briskly walks across a grassy field toward the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, while, behind her, a large U.S. Marine band playing a rousing rendition of “Semper Fidelis” marches in formation and a Silent Drill Platoon performs an enthralling and precisely-timed exhibition drill.  I am talking about the opening of A Few Good Men, easily one of the most famous segments in all of moviedom.  So I, of course, wanted to stalk St. […]



Sam’s Apartment from “A Few Good Men”

Jun 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

At the risk of saturating my blog with A Few Good Men locations, I’m back today with yet another spot from the 1992 courtroom drama.  (And I still have an additional AFGM locale up my sleeve, which I will be writing about soon.)  Last September, while in Washington, D.C. – where A Few Good Men was set and partially filmed – I dragged the Grim Cheaper, my good friend Nat, her boyfriend Tony, and her mom Marlys (yeah, there was a whole brood of us) […]



Danny’s Apartment from “A Few Good Men”

May 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

It is rare when a movie comes along and changes the course of your life.  For me, one such movie was A Few Good Men.  I walked out of the theatre after first seeing it in 1992 proclaiming that I was going to become a lawyer.  I was 15 at the time – a sophomore in high school.  I spent the next few years convinced that law was my calling, regularly and passionately professing my love of the film and its climatic “I want the […]



The “A Few Good Men” Softball Field

May 22nd, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I don’t know – or care – much about sports.  I do love me some Tom Cruise, though.  So when my friend/fellow stalker Owen, from the When Write Is Wrong blog, sent me his list of Washington, D.C./Philadelphia-area locales prior to my trip back east last September, I was thrilled to see the softball field from the 1992 drama A Few Good Men mentioned.  As noted in his files (which were extensive!), filming of the AFGM softball scenes took place on the baseball fields at […]



Idle Time Books from “A Few Good Men”

Feb 1st, 2017 | By | Category: Movie Locations

There’s pretty much nothing I love more than bookstores.  They run second only to Starbucks and film locations in my book (pun intended).  If I come across a good one, I can get lost amongst the stacks for hours.  So there was no way I was leaving Washington D.C. without checking out Idle Time Books, the quaint District literary shop that made a couple of appearances in A Few Good Men, one of my all-time favorite movies.

Idle Time Books was originally established in 1981 at […]
