The comments in the thread about Film Noir made me think about movie locations that you can actually visit, not counting studios. My son, when he first moved to L.A., made a special trip to visit the stairs that were in the Laurel & Hardy short "The Music Box." Similar stairs that were in a Three Stooges short (the one in which they are delivering ice) is somewhere else not too far away but I don't think he visited that location. Speaking of stairs, I've never visited the stairs in Georgetown, D.C., that were in the movie "the Exorcist," but I've never seen that movie. The one movie location that I made a point of visiting was in Fawnskin, California, near Big Bear. The location is in the first scene in an obscure semi-sci-fi movie filmed there in the late 1950s. Little is changed but somehow there's no magic in visiting a location like that. Same with visiting a battlefield.
