    1. Hello, thank you for the info as I have since updated the page. I am really surprised I didn't figure that out myself. Thank you again.

  2. You are correct about the 5000 block of N sheridan. I posted on your Code Of Silence section as well about the Limo. I know these things because i was in the Limousine business for many years in Chicago. The N Sheridan location was mentioned by me, when I was dating a girl that lived near there, and it was mentioned to me that they were looking for a place that had the large staircases on the backs of buildings in the city.

  3. 0:13 The picture of the policeman talking to the detective. This was on Pinegrove and Diversey. The patrolman was my English Teacher from Loop College Mr. Gutierrez.

    1. Sorry. I take the location back. But that is Mr. Gutierrez. He also had a line in the movie when they were filming on Pinegrove and Diversey; "You called for backup, we thought there was a riot!"

  4. Cheech and Chong filmed a movie called "Things are Tough All Over" it was also filmed north of Irving by the EL tracks in similar areas as "Running Scared"

  5. The shot where the car gets tagged is 4911 N winthrop ave. Buildings have since been built to the south of it and some details of the building have changed but it is definitely it. Easy to compare on google maps street view.

  6. On A Stakeout And Getting Their Car Picked Up By The Garbage Truck, watch the TV show Monk, on demand Comcast, season 6, episode 2, that looks just like the same alley, that would be San Francisco

  7. Snakes apartment is specifically 4645-4647 n Magnolia Ave 4647 unit 3N. That is a fact but it's unclear if they filmed in that unit.

  9. Where's Martini's Bar?

  10. In the first exterior Key West shot the Island in the background could be ''Wisteria Island''. But not sure...

  11. Yes that shot is Wisteria Island in the back. The bar they are purchasing is actually 276 Margaret St in Key West. Looks a little different today but the large building on the pier and the island in the back ground and the man made pier where the large boat is in the background are all still here.
