Death Becomes Her (1992)

In Robert Zemeckis’ underrated 1992 black comedy “Death Becomes Her,” Madeline, played by Meryl Streep and Ernest, played by Bruce Willis, live at this estate in San Marino, California.  Later in the film, Helen, played by Goldie Hawn, pays the couple a visit with sinister plans.

Bruce Willis, who plays a mortician in the film, does reconstructive work on bodies in what is actually the kitchen of the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.  The mansion is owned by the City of Beverly Hills and frequently hosts productions.  The building has been used in countless films.  This room alone has also been seen in “Spider-Man 3,” “The Bodyguard” and “The Witches Of Eastwick.”  While the exterior grounds of the mansion are open the the public, the interior usually is not.  However, once or twice a year, the city does allow the public access inside.  It is one of our most highly recommended places if you’re a movie fan and can manage to get on one of these self-guided tours.  Short of a film studio, you’ll be hard pressed to find another place with so many film locations.
