Color Of Night (1994)

Much of the 1994 film “Color of Night” takes place at a mansion belonging to Bob, played by Scott Bakula, but which is occupied by Bill, played by Bruce Willis, for the majority of the film.  The house is known as the Circles on the Point mansion and can be found directly across from Point Dume in Malibu, California.

The mansion has appeared in several other productions, including the TV series “GLOW” and “Jean-Claude Van Johnson,” as well as the low-budget 2000 drama “Ritual.”  It is also worth noting that the house of Tony Stark in the “Iron Man” films, while a CGI creation, was superimposed to be located at Point Dume, which is directly across the street from this home, making it the closest actual residence Stark’s fictional home.

Here is the driveway to the house, which is seen several times in the film, including when Bill opens the mailbox to discover a rattlesnake inside.  It’s no longer the same mailbox, as the one seen in the film was built into a rock, but it’s located in the same area.

Here is a view of the front of the house.  The circular opening on the left is where arguably the most famous scene from the film takes place; Bill’s sex scene with Rose, played by Jane March.  The camera pulls back through the opening as the two fall into the pool.  The pool is the same one shown in the film, but is not visible from the street.

Point Dume is directly across the street, which is also seen in the film, when Bill and Bob ride their bikes up the trail.
