Exploring film and historically significant sites. No biggie, just a hobby.
When in Oceanside one must visit the “Top Gun” house. The location of the house (built in 1887) was so idyllic that Kelly McGillis (who played Charlie) decided to stay at this bungalow during the making of Top Gun.

Locations from “Phone Booth”. By adding enough yellow cabs and sex shops the crew converted downtown LA into NY.

James Dean’s most famous movie, “Rebel Without a Cause”. A lot has changed in 60 years, the area is almost unrecognizable.

Filming locations from  "Last Action Hero", a very underrated Schwarzenegger movie. Took me a while to nail that apartment.

Filming location from the great and awesome “Fight Club”. Just like in “Se7en”, David Fincher loves to portray LA in a chronic gloom.

Another unchanged location from “Halloween”, the godfather of slasher movies. This was Jamie Lee Curtis’s first movie role.

Filming locations from “Halloween”, the most important horror film of the last 40 years and the one that started it all. Highly recommend.

Filming location from Tim Burton’s “Ed Wood” (starring Johnny Depp). Burton managed to find many period locations among the tacky, redeveloped streets of Hollywood.

Photos of the Charles Manson’s ‘family’ at the Spahn Ranch taken after the murders. I managed to locate the second photo. Surprising, those 44-year-old nails that held the hammock are still in the tree.

Final scene with Harrison Ford from one of my favorite sci-fi/noir movies “Blade Runner”. The interior of the Bradbury building looks absolutely amazing.
