Adobe Revel team member Richard Coencas shares photos of the famous movie locations he’s stumbled upon in his travels.
From time to time, I come across something that rings a bell. A moment of deja vu. But it’s not me having been there before, but instead I’ve stepped into an iconic scene that I’ve seen many times before, on the big screen, or small. These few photos are just some moments where I found myself looking at some scene and saying, “I know that.”
The first photo is the Old Mission San Juan Bautista in California. Alfred Hitchcock used that location in the film “Vertigo.” The mission did not have a tall bell tower for Kim Novak to jump from, so he added it. This is how it really looks.
The next shot is the iconic shot of the Golden Gate Bridge from Fort Point that is also reminiscent of Hitchcock’s “Vertigo.”
The last shot is Vasquez Rocks in Southern California. It may look familiar from any number of Westerns and science fiction movies that were filmed there. I always think of Captain Kirk fighting with the lizard creature, the Gorn, in the original “Star Trek” series.
