  • It's not out yet, but it has Will Farrell in it playing a soccer dad/coach. (Editor's Note - "Kicking and Screaming" was the working title at the time it was being filmed in Kersting Court and Best Buy Drugs)
  • I can think of TWO movies that are not on your list and should be.   "In Sickness and in Health", with Tom Skerritt in 1992, and "Pastime" with Jeffrey Tambor, late 80's, were both filmed in part in Sierra Madre; and---I can say with a bit o' pride---they were both filmed in my very own house on Montecito.  (I think my wife sent you a note earlier about the Skerrit movie, but she couldn't think of "Pastime.")   Also, you list "Mississippi Burning", which I'm pretty sure was not filmed anywhere near here, as opposed to the similar in title "Ghosts of Mississippi", which indeed was filmed at that big estate over on Highland Ave.... If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.... cheers, B. Eastland   PS---"Uncle Sam", with Isaac Hayes, was also filmed at my house, but I don't think it ever made it to the theaters....
  • "The Seven Little Foys" starring Bob Hope was filmed at the Pinney House on Lima.
  • "In Sickness and in Health" was filmed in part at our home on E. Montecito during  1992.  It starred Tom Skerrit & Leslie Ann Warren, among others. --  K. Eastland
  • "Laguna Heat" - HBO TV miniseries - starred Harry Hamlin, filmed in part at our former home, 756 N. Auburn - Bill Coburn
  • "A film with Cameron Diaz and other well knowns.... I believe it is named "The Last Supper." I was told parts of "The Jerk" as well. The gas station scene I think. Oh yeah.......and "Holocaust" I think is the name. Filmed entirely in Sierra Madre. It is about a small town that goes through a nuclear tragedy. Hey this was fun.........I'll keep in touch and let you know if I spot anymore! I'm sure I will."   Sincerely, Malulani Kelly
