  1. This is a great nice, nice work. I love looking at the comparisons. Even though this movie was shot in 1987 - 25 years ago - I'm amazed that some of the locations look almost identical.

  2. I love love love this movie!!!!!

  3. A strange thing is: The white house seen In the background during the big kiss (647 S. Hudson Avenue) is also visible when Watts says good night to Keith and Amanda (one minute before the big kiss). So in the good night scene the shots of Watts were made at 647 S. Hudson Avenue, and the shots of Keith and Amanda at 516 S. Hudson Avenue (approx. 200 feet away). Great movie. And Mary Stuart Masterson looks so fine.

  4. At this link, an interesting article on the locations from this movie. An in-depth slide show, they talk with the location people from the movie, matching up the scenes, I think this is the jewelry store site :

  5. madame siam 1723 n Hudson ave los Angeles ca 90028 This is a location I think might be the underground basement club scene where the March violets are playing and watts meets up with Keith. Might not be the right place but it's sure worth looking into. Just thought I'd share.

  6. Jewelry store is across from 8934 Pico St, right next to where the gas station scene was filmed, I think.

    1. Exactly....looking in google earth---thanks!
