About the Book
The first of its kind, this guide to various California filming sites covers five decades of science fiction, fantasy, and horror in chapter plays. Covering over sixty serials, many familiar locations are documented here, including the rugged terrain of Red Rock Canyon, which served as a stand-in for Saturn in Buck Rogers; the Bronson Caves and Griffith Observatory, which appeared in Flash Gordon; and the famous Iverson Ranch, which appeared in Batman, Superman and many other films.
Covered locations include the skyscrapers that appeared alongside Captain Marvel in The Adventures of Captain Marvel, the location of The Green Hornet’s apartment and filming locations for five silent serials. The compendium’s in-depth storytelling is enhanced by photos of film memorabilia, postcards, serial descriptions, accurate instructions to locations, notes and more.
