About the Book

Did you ever wonder where Beaver Cleaver’s house was? How about the mountain where King Kong had his hideaway? Or Mr. Roark’s mansion and lagoon on Fantasy Island? Of course, all were in Hollywood.
This is a photographic guide to 382 sites in and around Los Angeles that have been used in film and television. Some are well known (Mann’s Chinese Theater, the Hollywood Bowl, the Los Angeles Zoo); others are obscure (such as the Hollywood Hills house used in Double Indemnity, the garden from Dark Shadows and the Indian head rock seen in Noah’s Ark). The sites are grouped geographically, and each entry includes the exact address and photographs of what the location looks like today. A brief plot background is also provided.
