Every once in a while, I’ll come across some old house or some building facade that I’ve seen in the B&W classic movies from Hollywood’s Golden Age and Silver Age (we’re currently in the Lead Age) and I wonder what happened to all those other old locations. Recently, I discovered this website – DEAR OLD HOLLYWOOD – that catalogs this bizarre obsession of mine. I thought you might want to give it a look. Robby Cress, who established the site and ran it for like seven or eight years, does a clever job with finding movie stills and modern day images of those old haunts.
Just the other day when I was driving to a friend’s, I stumbled across Lynne Bracken’s house from L.A. CONFIDENTIAL.
