    I've never seen Vanishing Point,

    Just the remake of the 'Challenger scene' with the crazy girls/ Kurt Russell in Tarantino's Grindhouse presents: Deathtrap

    ( not even sure I'm getting the title right, but I LOVE Challengers and pony/muscle cars & scenes)

    a guilty pleasure movie of mine!

    Vanishing Point is one of the reasons I own a Challenger today. At one point, I owned two (hey, everyone should have a back-up). This is me when my hunnie says she needs eggs and milk:

    Countless westerns have been filmed in the Alabama Hills, which are, in fact, in California. Giant round granite boulders and spires give it away. Mt. Whitney looms in the background.

    That's now basically true for Atlanta and the entire State of Georgia.

    Not sure if it qualifies as 'iconic' but this location was used in a recent blockbuster:

    I had noticed a lot of movie credits in Georgia recently, did I read correctly that Pinewood has opened up shop/studio there?

    I grew up in LA, so filming locations are everywhere. But this spot was particularly cool:

    [​IMG]

    That's where the Terminator 2 crashed his truck through the wall and down into the spillway below while in pursuit of Arnold and the kid.

    Significance? This is directly across the street from my High School friend's house. I don't know why they picked that particular spot, it's just a nondescript intersection in the middle of the San Fernando Valley. But probably because it was in a quiet neighborhood where they could block off traffic without too much disruption.

    Dave's dad watched the whole thing from his front yard. It took about a half a day to build the breakaway wall, set everything up, and crash the truck.

    The tree from the movie "The Ring" was a hand made prop that sat out in a pasture here in the Pacific Northwest long after the the film crew left town. I saw it many times on the way to my friends house until the wind & rain finally took it out. Most of "The Ring" was shot in various locations in Washington state.

    In Tin Cup - Remember Costner's "Texas" driving range where he worked as a golf pro with Cheech? That wasn't Texas...it was down the Sonoita Highway SE of Tucson along the Greaterville Road turnoff. I was there during the filming one day, in fact, it's possible I unknowingly drove my VW Bus along the dirt road in the background through a scene being filmed. I noticed the traffic on the highway was stopped which meant they were rolling, but nobody was stopping traffic on the dirt road near those prop billboards. I looked closely for myself in the movie, but nay...once again my best work ended up on the cutting room floor.

    It was here, in the flat part to the left. All the movie trailers & equipment were parked on the hills to the right. The Santa Ritas in the background.

    White Line Fever was filmed in & all around Tucson. Here a great Then & Now shoot someone did.


    And how many thousands of times has Golden Gate Mountain appeared onscreen over the decades, behind Old Tucson Studios...

    The movie “Killerr Diller” was shot in Booneville, MO. I helped my uncle plant a bunch of trees there once while I was in college up the road in Columbia. We drove around town while eating lunch; it was spring and the redbud trees were violently in bloom.

    When I saw Killer Diller it seemed like familiar scenery; when I saw it was done in Booneville that kind of made my day.
