Air Force One (1997)

The 1997 Harrison Ford action movie “Air Force One” was filmed in several different locations, including Ohio, California, Washington D.C. and Russia.

When Vice President Kathryn Bennett, played by Glenn Close calls Russian President Petrov, he speaks to her from his bedroom.  This was filmed at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.  The same room was used in “The Big Lebowski” and “There Will Be Blood.”

The scenes of General Alexander Radek being released from prison were filmed at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio.  The former prison is of course most well known for being featured in “The Shawshank Redemption,” but it was also featured in the 1980s action film “Tango & Cash.”  This gate is seen in the establishing shot of the prison.  It’s not a real gate and was built by the production specifically for the film.  There was also a longer wall built on each side of the gate.  After filming completed, the property had the wall taken back down but left the gate.  Seeing it in person, it looks a bit strange, as it’s a gate to nothing on the side of the building.

The camera then moves above the gate and we see these stairs leading into the prison.

If you find yourself in Ohio, it’s well worth it to make a stop at the Ohio State Reformatory.  It’s one of the most memorable filming locations we’ve visited.

Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood (2019)

When word began to spread that Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood” would be using practical set dressing to convert Los Angeles back to 1969 block by block, we knew this rare occurrence was something we should capture as much as possible for the fleeting moments it took place.

We typically avoid visiting filming locations while a project is in active production.  There are so many moving pieces, restricted areas and things in the way, it almost always proves best to wait until a production has left.  However, this film proved to be an exception.  Documenting the locations in real time made for a much different, more challenging process.  Some areas, such as Hollywood Blvd, were lined with large crowds actively watching for nights on end.  Other places, such as the Spahn Ranch set, were quite low profile and known to very few.  The locations were so impressive, we’ve deviated a bit from our usual format to show some set dressing and behind the scenes photos.  Not everything made it to camera, so we thought it was worthwhile to showcase the level of detail that went into the project.  While there are some minor spoilers in this article, we did our best to avoid any major ones.

The early scenes of Rick Dalton, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Cliff Booth, played by Brad Pitt, on the set of “Bounty Law” were filmed at Melody Ranch in Newhall, California.  This is not Tarantino’s first time filming at Melody Ranch.  Some scenes from”Django Unchained” were also filmed there.  Melody Ranch does offer tours to the public, which is a rarity among movie ranches in Southern California.  However, the challenge is that it’s a very popular filming location, often booked for months at a time.  There are only a few opportunities a year you can successfully book a tour and it is typically on very short notice.  Here’s a look at several buildings seen in the film during the “Bounty Law” advertisement.

Rick Dalton lives on Cielo Drive next door to Sharon Tate, played by Margot Robbie.  The real entrance to Cielo Dr is seen multiple times in the film.  The houses seen in the film are not actually located on the real Cielo, but the Tate house is a pretty close representation of what was there in 1969.  Most of Cielo is actually public, but the path up to the former Tate residence is private.  The entrance area seen in the film is visible from the public portion of the road.

onceuponatimeinhollywood6

LOCATION: Cielo Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

The actual home used as the exterior for Rick Dalton’s house can be found in a cul-de-sac in Studio City.  It’s actually one of three locations used in the film to composite Rick’s home, as each of the individual locations lacked specific features needed for the story.  The Studio City home was used extensively, however, with many scenes recognizable to it.  Unlike Cielo Dr, Alto View Dr is a public road.

Cliff’s trailer, supposedly located on the grounds of the Van Nuys Drive-In Theatre, was a combination of two locations.  The drive-in sign was built by the production at the Saugus Speedway in Santa Clarita, which now serves as the site of the Santa Clarita Swap Meet.  Cliff drives past the white fencing and enters here.

Pussycat takes Cliff to Spahn Ranch, which was a very accurate recreation built at Corriganville Park in Simi Valley.  Originally the production hoped to film at the real Spahn Ranch, but due to the fact that the entrances were bulldozed over, it made the land difficult for building sets.  Much like Spahn Ranch, the nearby Corriganville is also a former movie ranch which hosted many westerns in during the 1950s and 1960s, before being destroyed by widlfires.  The land now operates as a public park, but there are many signs explaining the land’s film history and the frames of the old buildings are still in the ground.

The Spahn Ranch set took a couple months to build, but when it was finished, it shot very quickly and was demolished just a few weeks later.  Having done plenty of research on the real Spahn Ranch and The Manson Family long before this film was ever announced, we were quite well versed in the subject matter.  Standing in person at what was a near exact, full scale replica of Spahn Ranch remains one of the most memorable location experiences we’ve ever had.  The production design and attention to detail was incredible.  If you go there now, it’s empty land again, but here we’ll take a look at when the set existed.

Rick returns from Italy with his costar.  The couple is seen walking past the wall tiles of Terminal 6 at LAX Airport.  These tiles can be found along the pedestrian tunnel in the lower level and are only accessible to airline passengers and staff, as they make their way to baggage claim or the exits.  Tarantino also filmed Pam Grier in this area in the opening of “Jackie Brown.”

It was a unique experience walking through 1969 with the production and we hope these photos help you share in that experience.  There’s actually many locations we captured where the production shot, but were not featured in the final film.  Perhaps there will be a longer or alternate cut someday.  For now, we’ll keep to the places that made it into the film.

The Manson Family

The history of The Manson Family and their victims is long and vast, scattered all across California and beyond, spanning through the heart of Hollywood, into the far reaches of the desert.  We’ve previously we posted articles covering Spahn Ranch and Barker Ranch.  Here we will take a look at many additional sites related to the history of The Family, in semi-chronological order.  We do not endorse any of the crimes related to this subject matter. This article’s sole intention is to simply acknowledge the places where these events happened and show them as they stand today.

Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, who would become the second member of The Manson Family and one of the most devoted, did not get along with her father from a young age.  Not far from LAX airport, you’ll find the childhood home of Lynette.

mansonfamily1

Of particular interest is the lamp post in front of the home.  On the cement in front of it, Lynette scrawled her name as a child, which remains there to this day.  Eventually Lynette ran away from home, leading her to Venice Beach, where she met a recently paroled Charles Manson.

When released from Terminal Island in San Pedro in 1967, Charles Manson headed north to the Bay Area.  He played guitar at the UC Berkeley campus, where he would meet Mary Brunner, the first member of the Manson Family.  Here is the famous Sather Gate at the Berkeley campus.

Mason became a resident of the famous Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Fransisco during the “Summer of Love” in 1967, renting an apartment unit in this building.  It was in San Francisco that he also met future family member Susan “Sadie” Atkins.

Around this same period, Bobby Beausoleil, who would later become involved in the first of the Manson Family murders, was also in San Francisco.  He posed for a famous photo on the front stairs of this house, which at the time was occupied by underground filmmaker Kenneth Anger.  Anger filmed portions of his short film “Invocation of My Demon Brother” at the house, which featured Bobby Beausoleil and Anton LaVey, with music by Mick Jagger.

Eventually Manson would make his way back down to Southern California.  Susan Atkins joined Manson in his trek south, along with other Family members.  Sadie worked as a stripper at the Candy Cat One in Chatsworth, California.  The Candy Cat remained open for decades until 2017, when it finally closed its doors.  You can still see the faded letters where the sign once was.

Just across the street from the former Candy Cat One is The Munch Box, a staple of the San Fernando Valley that has been in business since 1956.  Charles Manson used to sit and eat at The Munch Box, waiting for Sadie to finish her work shifts.  A market also once stood in this area, which was one of the spots the women of the Manson Family would go digging through the dumpsters, looking for discarded food.

There are conflicting stories about how Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys came to know The Manson Family.  The most common story is that he picked up members Patricia Krenwinkel and Ella Jo Bailey in 1968, who were hitchhiking, and brought them back to his place on Sunset Blvd.  The story has been disputed, but what is known is that the Family began staying at Dennis Wilson’s home for a time.  During this period, Wilson and Manson undertook some musical collaborations.  Manson’s song “Cease to Exist” ended up being recorded under the name “Never Learn Not to Love” on The Beach Boys’ “20/20” album, though the sole songwriting credit went to Dennis Wilson.

Eventually the Family would overstay their welcome and Wilson split from them by selling the home.  The house still stands, but it is fairly difficult to get a decent view.  Fencing and trees surround the entire property along the street.  Here is a view of the driveway gate.

Across the street on Will Rogers State Park Rd, the road goes up an incline, allowing for views over the fence.  The trees still obscure most of the property though.  It should be noted that parking is difficult here.  Sunset Blvd is quite busy along this stretch and has no parking shoulder.  You can go up Will Rogers State Park Rd, but the nearest parking area is at the top, meaning you’d have a long walk down and back up to return to your vehicle.  Your best bet is to take one of the side roads in the vicinity, but many of them are private, so it can be tricky.

In early 1969, Charles Manson rented a house in Canoga Park, where members of The Family stayed with him.  They called the house the “Yellow Submarine,” due to its paint color.  By this time, Manson had already discovered Spahn Ranch, but he felt it was too disorganized for musical recording and wanted to use the home as a studio.  The Family’s time there would be brief and the house was eventually demolished.  Today, an apartment complex stands in its place.

The events that set the stage for the Tate-LaBianca murders really kicked into full motion in 1969 with the shooting of Bernard “Lotsapoppa” Crowe.  Crowe had agreed to a drug deal with Charles “Tex” Watson, who burned him and kept the money.  An angry Crowe called Spahn Ranch and asked for Charles.  The name mix-up put him on the phone with Charles Manson, rather than Watson.  Crowe threatened to harm Watson’s girlfriend if the situation wasn’t fixed, so Manson headed to his apartment in the middle of Hollywood.  There things escalated and Manson ended up shooting Lotsapoppa.  Leaving under the belief he had killed Crowe, when Manson watched the news, he saw reports of a murdered member of the Black Panther party.  Crowe had in fact survived the shooting and was not a member of the Panthers.  However, Manson erroneously believed he was on the hook for murder and that the Panthers would soon visit Spahn Ranch seeking retaliation.  Manson also believed that Watson owed him big for having taken care of his situation.

The apartment where Lotsapoppa was shot has long since been demolished.  It is now a parking lot for the famous Magic Castle.

More trouble would soon come when Gary Hinman set up a drug deal with a biker gang through Bobby Beausoleil.  While Beausoleil denies ever being a member of the Manson Family, he held many ties with them.  After the bikers claimed the drugs were bad, they demanded their money back from Beausoleil.  Beausoleil went to the house of Gary Hinman, along with Mary Brunner and Susan Atkins and held Hinman captive.  Believing he had received a large inheritance, they demanded money from him.  Hinman denied having money and also disputed that the drugs were bad.  Eventually Charles Manson would visit the house as well, slicing Hinman with a sword.

Bobby Beausoleil would then murder Gary Hinman, with words written in blood on the walls, in an attempt to make it look like a crime committed by the Black Panthers.  Not long after, Beausoleil was found asleep in Hinman’s car and charged with murder.  Here is the former Hinman house, which has since been remodeled and is obscured by trees and shrubs.  There used to be stairs leading up to the house, which have also since been removed.

LOCATION: 964 Old Topanga Canyon Rd, Topanga, CA 90290

With Beausoleil arrested for murder, the events fell into place for the first night of the Tate-LaBianca murders.  Many members of the Family have claimed the murders were intended to appear as copycat crimes, to make it appear as if Hinman’s killer was still on the loose, thus resulting in Beausoleil’s release.  Others have disputed this motive, however.

Steven Parent lived at this house in El Monte, California.  Parent had the misfortune of trying to sell William Garretson a clock radio on the night of the murders on August 8, 1969.  Garretson was staying in a guest house at the Tate residence when Parent paid him a visit.  As Parent was leaving, he encountered Tex Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Linda Kasabian.  Watson shot and killed Parent in his car in the driveway.

This is the entrance to the private road of Cielo Drive.  Much of Cielo is actually a public road.  It is only the portion leading up to the houses that is marked private.  It is at the foot of the private road where the killers parked their car, heading up the rest of the way on foot in darkness.

While that portion of Cielo Drive is private, the road directly across the street, Bella Drive, is not.  It too goes up an incline and from the top you get a clear view of all the homes along Ceilo Dr.  The house furthest to the left in front of the city skyline is where the Tate/Polanki residence once stood.  The killers’ original plan was to murder the occupants of every house along the block.  The Tate murders proved more difficult than they had anticipated, however, so they abandoned plans to enter the other homes.  While neighbors did hear sounds the night of the murders, the canyons echoed sounds and it was difficult to place where the noises came from.

After the murders, the killers traveled about 1.5 miles up Benedict Canyon Drive and stopped at this home on Portola Drive.  Here they used a hose to wash off the victims’ blood.  However, the homeowner discovered them and wrote down their license plate, which would become a heavily incriminating piece of evidence during the murder trials.

The killers then made their way further up Benedict Canyon.  They pulled over to this section of the road, across the street from 2901 Benedict Canyon, where they tossed the clothes they wore during the murders.  In 1969, this area was a wide shoulder where cars could pull over.  Now a guard rail blocks it, but there is still a strip of land there with enough space to fit a car.  Based on descriptions later provided by Susan Atkins, which described the area as mountain on one side and a ravine on the other, a local news station recreated the drive from Cielo, traveling at a moderate speed and changing their clothes.  When they finished, they pulled over to the nearest shoulder they could find, leading them to the precise location where the clothes were tossed.

The killers then made their way over to Beverly Glen Blvd, where they tossed the gun.  They believed this area to be an empty canyon where the weapon would not likely be recovered.  From the road above, this is the view they would have seen.  It was not an empty canyon, however.  At the bottom of the hill was a neighborhood and the gun was tossed into one of the back yards.

Not content with one night of murders or with how they were carried out, Charles Manson decided to accompany the group for a second night of killings.  After roaming around in search of a suitable site, they made their way over to the neighborhood of Harold True and eventually selected the house next door, belonging to Rosemary and Leno LaBianca.  The group consisted of Manson, Tex Watson, Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian, Patricia Krenwinkel, Leslie Van Houten, and Steve “Clem” Grogan.  Manson entered the LaBianca house and tied up the victims, telling them they were only there to rob the place and would not be harmed.

He then returned to the car with Rosemary LaBianca’s wallet and sent Watson, Krenwinkel and Van Houten in to do the killings.  He told them to hitchhike back to Spahn Ranch and he would take the remaining group out to perform a different set of murders.  Here is what the LaBianca house looks like today.  A gate and garage have been added and trees planted to obscure the view.  Much like the Cielo house, the address was also slightly changed.

Manson then took the second group to this gas station in Sylmar and had Linda Kasabian dispose of Rosemary LaBianca’s wallet in the restroom.  Here is the side of the building where the restroom once was.  During the trial, the prosecution alleged that this gas station was chosen in a predominantly black area, as to implicate black killers and bring about a race war called “Helter Skelter.”  One of the few blows against the “Helter Skelter” motive came when the defense noted that Sylmar was not a predominantly black area.

Manson, Grogan, Kasabian and Atkins then went to this apartment building on Venice Beach, looking to commit the next murder.  They came here because Kasabian remembered a resident there she disliked.  After knocking on a door and failing to find the correct apartment unit, which Kasabian later claimed to have done intentionally to avoid more killings, the group abandoned plans to commit murder here.  Upon making their way down the stairwell to exit, Susan Atkis deficated in the building before leaving.

While at the Sybil Brand Institute, Susan Atkins confessed to a cell mate named Virginia Graham about the Tate Murders. Graham in turn shared what Atkins had told her with homocide detectives, which eventually helped lead to the indictment of Charles Manson. The prison shut down in 1997, but today the grounds are still owned by the Los Angeles sherrif’s office, where it is used by warehouse companies and for filming purposes. Walking the grounds, however, it still very much feels like a prison.

On September 5, 1975, Lynette Fromme left her house on P Street dressed in a red robe and came to the California State Capitol building in Sacramento.  She stood at this tree and aimed a gun at then President Gerald Ford, who was walking past.  Secret Service members immediately subdued her with no shots fired.  For her crime, she served 34 years in prison before being paroled in 2009.  The easiest way to reach the tree where the incident happened is from the intersection of 12th St and L St.  Ford was leaving the Senator Hotel and crossed that intersection, heading for the California State Capitol building.

The final tenant of the original Cielo Drive residence before it was demolished was Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.  When Trent relocated from Los Angeles to New Orleans, he took with him one piece of the Cielo property; the infamous door that had “Pig” scrawled in Sharon Tate’s blood by Susan Atkins.  Trent purchased this former funeral home in New Orleans in 1995 and converted it into a recording studio.  He had the Cielo door installed as the front entrance to the studio.  Trent would eventually relocate back to Los Angeles in 2004 and abandon the former studio, this time leaving the Cielo door behind for good.  The building stood vacant until 2010, when it was purchased by a surgeon looking to convert the property into a retail area.  It has since been remodeled beyond recognition, but we managed to visit back when the original building still stood.

Down And Out In Beverly Hills (1986)

In the 1986 Nick Nolte film “Down and Out in Beverly Hills,” the life of a wealthy Beverly Hills family is turned upside down by the arrival of a homeless man.  In the film, the house is clearly visible from the road.  That is not the case today, as it is now surrounded by plants and trees, making it difficult to get a clear view.  Other than that, however, the house still closely resembles how it appeared in the film.  The home really is located in Beverly Hills, which is somewhat rare, due to the high cost of filming in the exclusive neighborhood, which causes most productions to find more affordable areas to stand in instead.

After the 1970 film “Love Story,” Harvard University banned nearly all commercial production on the grounds, due to disruption to students and damage to property.  Their anti-filming policy still remains today, thus the majority of the Harvard scenes for “The Social Network” were instead filmed at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.  However, a few shots of the real Harvard and surrounding Harvard Square can be seen in the opening credits of the film.  The producers sidestepped Harvard’s policy by filming on top of the Cambridge Savings Bank at Harvard Square (the bank was also used for a robbery scene in the 2010 Ben Affleck film “The Town”).   Portions of the Dudley House at Harvard Square can be seen in these opening credit shots.

Later in the film, Eduardo, played by Andrew Garfield, is seen being initiated into the prestigious Phoenix Society, citing the three lies about the John Harvard statue.  Once again, the real Harvard University was not cooperative in allowing any filming at the real statue.  This scene was instead filmed at Phillips Academy in Andover, MA (180 Main St, Andover, MA 01810), about 25 miles north of Boston.  Below is the real John Harvard statue at Harvard University, which was recreated for the film.

Several scenes in the film were actually shot around the Los Angeles area, far away from the grounds of Harvard.  Once such sequence involved the Winkelvoss twins discovering Facebook has begun allowing registration in the UK, which finally prompts the twins, played by Armie Hammer, to sue Mark Zuckerberg.  While this scene is supposedly set in England, it was actually shot at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.  The scenes were shot inside the Breakfast Room, which was also seen from the opposite side in “The Big Lebowski,” when The Dude looks at photos of the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers.

The Osbournes

In 2002, MTV found themselves a hit television show when they decided to start following the personal lives of rock legend Ozzy Osbourne and his family.  The show ran four seasons until 2005, filming inside the family’s Beverly Hills home.  Fans of the show are likely to be disappointed if they attempt to visit the actual house, however.  It is obscured by walls, gates and trees, making very little of the house visible to the public.  Here we offer what little can be seen.  The Osbournes have long since moved out.  The house later belonged to singer Christina Aguilera as well, who likewise has long since moved.

The Big Lebowski (1998)

“The Big Lebowski,” one of the great comedies of the Coen Brothers, shot all around the greater Los Angeles area.  Several of the movie locations are surprisingly difficult to gain access to however, so if you’re a fan of the film and want to check out the places where it was shot, just be aware it may be a more difficult process than you’d expect.

First, we start with the apartment of The Dude, played famously by Jeff Bridges.  The exterior apartment complex can be found in Venice, while the interiors were shot on a sound stage.  The complex has since been renovated, but still bears some resemblance to how it appeared in the film.

The apartment complex across the street can also be seen in the film.  This complex is frequently mistaken as being The Dude’s.

Just outside of the apartments on Venezia Ave, looking down toward Zeno Pl, you’ll see where The Dude confronts Da Fino, the brother shamus.

LOCATION: Venezia Ave, Venice, CA 90291 (in front of The Dude’s apartment)

The famous bowling alley in the film no longer exists.  It was the Hollywood Star Lanes, formerly located at 5227 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029.  The building was torn down in 2002 to make way for a children’s elementary school.

The Big Lebowski’s mansion consisted of two locations.  The exterior was shot at 10231 Charing Cross Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90024.  It is a private, gated property, closed to the public.  The interior of the mansion is the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.  The City of Beverly Hills actually owns the property, which is routinely used for filming.  The outside grounds are open to the public, but getting inside is more difficult.  Due to hosting productions and private events on a regular basis, only a few times a year does the city open the inside up for public viewing.  It can be done if you are patient and keep an eye out for these select dates, however.

Inside the Greystone Mansion, this wall is where The Dude talks with Brandt, played by Philip Seymour Hoffman, and looks at all of The Big Lebowski’s awards and achievements, including his “Little Lebowski Urban Achievers.”  It’s known as the “Breakfast Room” inside the mansion.

Brandt is seen walking these hallways of Greystone Mansion several times in the film, as are The Dude and Walter, played by John Goodman.

Another famous location inside of Greystone Mansion; The Dude talks to the distraught Big Lebowski in front of this fireplace, where The Dude is hired to find the kidnapped Bunny Lebowski.

The very same room was used in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “There Will Be Blood,” as Daniel Plainview’s office, where his son visits him late in the film.  It was also seen in “Air Force One.” A little tip for Lebowski fans, this room can usually be seen without access inside the Greystone Mansion.  If you go to the front of the building and look through the windows, usually there are no curtains and this room, which is on the ground level, left of the main windows, can be seen.  The hallway Brandt walks down can also be seen through a doorway window, just around the corner to the left of this room, near the fish pond.  Only the Urban Achievers room truly requires access inside the mansion to be seen.

The coffee shop where Walter tells dude he can “get you a toe by 3 o’clock… with nail polish” is Johnie’s Coffee Shop Restaurant in midtown Los Angeles.  The restaurant actually closed many years ago, but still operates as a filming location.  It has appeared in “Reservoir Dogs,” “American History X,” “Miracle Mile,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds” and many more.

Late in the film, The Dude pays a visit to Jackie Treehorn’s house.  In the film, the property is shown as being right on the beach.  Those beach scenes were filmed at Point Dume in Malibu.  In reality, however, the house is located in the hills of Benedict Canyon, nowhere near the beach.  It’s the Sheats-Goldstein House, one of the most unique and famous houses in Los Angeles.  It’s actually located just above Cielo Dr, where the Manson Family’s infamous murder of Sharon Tate and four others took place.  The house regularly hosts photo shoots for models and at one time even allowed porn shoots.  In 2016, the property was donated to LACMA, which hosts occasional events there.  The house is tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac, down a long, private drive and is not visible from the street.  Unless you are a professional photographer or model, the only way to get onto the property is most likely, similar to Greystone Mansion, to keep your eyes peeled for a rare, public invitation.
