Film Locations / Re: How are the interiors in Mini Hollywood?
« on: September 03, 2011, 07:20:28 AM »

On the web site "Places of memory", I publish only places I am sure of. In Mini Hollywood, the interiors are disappointing. There are not what you are expecting. Either they have been completely transformed or the decor were set in another place (Italy probably).
Another point is that many other films were shot in Mini Hollywood. They may have modified the interiors.
I was not allowed to enter other places.

Here is some pictures of the interiors now (where one can believes the films were shot):

The bank counter :

The bar :

Clint's hotel counter (behind a glass panel; there is no access) :

Clint's hotel staircase (behind a glass panel; there is no access) :

The interior of the bank is a kind of museum for the cinema. On can see very old film projectors, posters ...


At last I found the place. It was a difficult task.

Here is the result on my web site :

Film Locations / GBU The other side of Langstone Bridge
« on: September 07, 2010, 06:57:59 AM »
An interesting trip to access to the other side of Langstone Bridge through the gorge of the Arroyo coming from Contreras.
On the map, it is the shortest way to go to Sad Hill cemetery.

Read and see more ...

Film Locations / Re: Rojo's residence in Casa de Campo Madrid
« on: July 12, 2009, 12:32:43 AM »
The Casa de Campo (Country House) is the largest urban park situated west of central Madrid, (Spain). It was formerly a royal hunting estate. Its area is more than 1,700 hectares (6.6 sq mi).

You can see it on the maps of my previews posts.

Rojo's house in For a fistful of dollars.
I think it could be useful to show the maps of the Casa de Campo in Madrid

How I find this place was a headhache. It took me about 5 month to find the place.
First of all, I read the information on Christopher Frayling's book "Something to do with death" where it says the place is in the Casa de Campo in Madrid "a museum of rural life and folklore". Actually, there is not such a museum in Madrid.
I tried many research on Internet. I found not a single clue.

Finally, during a trip to Spain, end of june (2009), my wife and I went there in Casa de Campo with screen captures of the film.
To start with, we went to the information center. Though the ladies in charge there, placed several phone calls, they cound not help.

Then we went to the zone where are the "Pabellons" (Pavilions). At least I had a first clue, when I entered a restaurant and showed the pictures to a lady . She send us to the "Pabellon de Toledo", a restaurant called "La Pesquera". Inside I recognized the arch of the main door. My wife found the small arches hidden behind folding-screens. I asked a confirmation to a guy in charge. His answer was not sympathetic.
Then, we went  to another restaurant next to this one. We met two witnesses who recognized the pictures. They were there before the "pabellons" were destroyed.

This is it.


Film Locations / Rojo's residence in Casa de Campo Madrid
« on: July 05, 2009, 11:20:24 AM »
I found what used to be the Rojo's residence. It remains only the 3 door arches of the cellar.

The place in the exhibition zone called "Feria del Campo" in the Casa de Campo Madrid. Of the all the "pabellons" (pavilions) built in the 50's only part of them remain but have been modified.

The house was the "Pabellon de Toledo". Now it is a restaurant "chic" called "La Pesquera".
Position : 40°24'51"N   3°43'57"W

Picture of the callar in the film :

Main door arch now :

Small door arches (now toilet entrances : Right for ladies, left for men) :

In the following weeks, I will publish new pictures of my 2009 trip in Spain


General Discussion / Sergio Leone and Television Commercials

Somebody asked sometime ago, I can't remember where and when, about Sergio Leone and the ads.
I found 2 informations :
 1) In "Les cahiers du cinéma" : In january 1989, Sergio Leone went to Zimbabwe to make a film for the ad of a french car "Renault 19". It is called "The elephants". (The elephants, the bridge and the GBU music).

 2) In the Christoper Frayling' s "Something to do with death". At the end of his book, in the
     "Complete filmography "chapter, he refers to those ads :
      < 1974-89
        Glaces Gervais,  Renault 18 (ruins of Petra), Renault 18 (diesel unchained), Riz Lustucru,
        Pain bonne fournée, Whisky J & B, Europ Assistance, Palmolive, Talbo Solara, Dany Danone,
        Renault 19 >
