Breezy (1973)

The 1973 Clint Eastwood directed film “Breezy” was shot in Southern California. In the opening scene, Breezy, played by Kay Lenz, leaves the home of Bruno, a man whom she’s slept with but doesn’t remember her name. The title sequence begins as she walks down Rothdell Trail. The road is most famous for also being the one time home of The Doors singer Jim Morrison, who lived with his girlfriend near the bottom of the street and penned the song “Love Street” about Rothdell Trail and the surrounding neighborhood.

LOCATION: 8001 Rothdell Trail, Los Angeles, CA 90046

While very little of the exterior of Bruno’s home is seen in the film, this is the only property there from the top corner Breezy starts down.

Here is the exact spot where the film’s title appears as Breezy walks.

LOCATION: Prospect Trail / Rothdell Trail, Los Angeles, CA 90046

Breezy continues down Rothdell Trail. While the street has changed a bit since filming took place, it is still very recognizable overall.

Breezy walks over the the iconic Canyon Country Store. This is all geographically accurate and you can walk the exact same route seen in the film, if you’re so inclined.

LOCATION: 2108 Laurel Canyon Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046

The Canyon Country Store is referred to specifically in “Love Street” as “this store where the creatures meet.” At the height of the 1960s counterculture movement, the Canyon Country Store served as a meeting place for musicians, such as Joni Mitchel, David Crosby and Mama Cass Elliot, all of whom penned songs about the neighborhood, with the latter even living in the basement of the store for a period. The store is still open today and remains a popular spot for locals.

Breezy hitchhikes next to the parking lot of the store, where a strange man picks her up.

Frank, played by William Holden, lives at this home, located in Tarzana. Breezy first meets Frank outside the home and much of the film takes place here. The home has since been remodeled, but the unique triangle design is still very identifiable. In fact, the home is sometimes referred to as the “Triangle House.” While the home is unfortunately not visible from the street, here is an aerial view. There are also extensive real estate photos and videos available online of both the inside and outside of the home, if you wish to see more.

LOCATION: 4946 Vanalden Ave, Tarzana, CA 91356

Frank has lunch with Betty, played by Marj Dusay, at the famous Yamashiro Hollywood restaurant. Originally constructed as a private residence in 1914, it was sold just ten years later. After becoming a boys military school, it wasn’t until 1948 that the building began to be restored to it’s original appearance. The restaurant has appeared in countless productions, such as “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Gone in 60 Seconds,” “Nocturnal Animals”, “Blind Date,” “Playing God,” “Death Wish II,” “Sayonara” and many more . It also appeared in such TV shows as “Perry Mason,” “I Spy,” “Route 66,” “My Three Sons” and more. The restaurant is famous for it’s views overlooking Hollywood.

In one scene, Anna’s daughter Samantha, played by Jaynee-Lynne Kinchen, hears crying from her back yard. She looks through the fence across the street, where more homes from the Warner Bros. Ranch can be seen, albeit from a partially obstructed perspective. First she sees part of the Griswold house from “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” The same house can also be seen in “American Beauty,” “WandaVision,” “Hocus Pocus” and more.

The Beach Bum (2019)

The 2019 stoner comedy “The Beach Bum,” directed by Harmony Korine, was filmed in Miami and the Florida Keys. The film stars Matthew McConaughey as Moondog, a man who indulges in every form of pleasure and debauchery he can find. Early in the film, Moondog joins a singer on the stage of the Schooner Wharf Bar in Key West, where he sings and recites a new poem he wrote. The bar and restaurant, which calls itself a “last little piece of Old Key West,” is a local favorite, with frequent musical performers. What is seen in the film is not unlike the real experience.

LOCATION: 202 William St, Key West, FL 33040

Before heading up to Miami, Moondog feeds a stray cat some water at the Hogfish Bar and Grill. This is another local favorite just outside of Key West and well worth a visit.

LOCATION: 6810 Front St, Stock Island, FL 33040

Moondog’s house, where he lives with his wealthy wife Minnie, played by Ilsa Fisher, can be found on the famed Star Island in Miami Beach. Moondog is seen approaching the home on a boat, where he climbs up onto the property. While Star Island isn’t technically private, it does have a guarded entrance and you’ll have to speak with the guard in order to gain access. There are many boat tours that will take you around the island, however. Just disregard their information about filming locations, as most of it is fabricated and incorrect.

LOCATION: 46 W Star Island Dr, Miami Beach, FL 33139

This area is shown in quite a few scenes of the film.

The front of the house is briefly shown in one scene, as Moondog approaches on a bicycle as some police officers stand outside.
