Raising Hope (revisited)



Click here for my previous trip to the Raising Hope house.   Back then, it looked more like it does on the show.. no grass, etc. But it looks like they put grass back while on hiatus.  Still one of my favorite shows on tv....









House (1986)


The home featured in House is located in Monrovia, California.  (Click here for the House II: The Second Story location.)

Escape From New York (1981)


The movie was filmed everywhere but New York... mostly in St. Louis, but the shots of the Liberty Island Headquarters were filmed at the Sepulveda Dam in LA....

The movie also stars the great Tom Atkins...


Changeling (2008)


This film really grew on me and I think Angeline Jolie puts in one of her best performances.   Following are some of the many locations used in the film.   First up, her house and street are located in San Dimas.
