    It's the schoolhouse from "The Birds" located in Bodega, CA. Hitchcock seamlessly made it appear to be located in Bodega Bay, the setting for the movie, which is about five miles away.

    Is one of our favorite movies- and love how the color, light/darkness just pops! in this film. Bodega Bay is a character.

    Plus, I will ALWAYS be in love with Tippy Hedron. Beautiful.

    In 1973 I drove west from Denver along U.S. Route 6 which was being converted to I-70...very rough going, especially through Glenwood Canyon as shown in the movie when the cops were chasing him. Since I didn't take pictures the movie is my photo album.That Interstate wasn't finished until the 90s, to give you an idea of what a job that was. It looks to me like parts of V.P. were also filmed along U.S. 40 beside the relatively small (at that point) Colorado River but I could be mistaken.

    About a mile and a half from where I am sitting is the site where I constructed a split rail fence for the movie Lucky Numbers . The concept was to alter a few posts , drive the car through and rebuild it for the farmer to use going forward . The stunt driver missed the altered posts and proceeded to total the only car that they had for the stunt . My posts stood just fine and they only got 1 take as a result . I still have the thank you letter from Paramount in the office .

    My parents lived in Tucson in the 60's. Been to Old Tucson many times coupled with Grand Canyon and Nogales visits.

    I've been here 50 years as of this past August. I haven't once been to Old Tucson! I even lived just down the road from it twice, drove past it at least once or twice daily, but never went in, never took family or visitors there. And (sigh) now it's gone (well, maybe not for good). I was there once in the early 60s during a boyhood visit, that was enough.
    Nogi & the Canyon are way more visit-worthy with their implied elements of risk.

    Vanishing Point (1971) Spoiler Alert! WOOT!

    DO NOT READ!

    Do not look at the attached clip! Do not pass Go--and do not collect $200 either!



    The original version of Vanishing Point has the car crashing into bulldozers set up my the copz. The filmmakers had several Challengers they used for the film, but they didn't want to destroy one in the final scene.

    So they used a Camaro.

    Vanishing Point was also shot in and around Rifle, Colorado... the old bridge was the one that Kowalski roared over.

    I live (lived, I guess since I believe they recently moved it) about five minutes from this instructor’s home from the movie.

    Re: Vertigo. Mission Dolores in SF and Mission San Juan Bautista. Very fine. San Juan Bautista is a good town.
