(perfect cherry on top) Anyhow, I was kind of dissappointed with 'Daisy'.I tried to get into it but I just couldn't. Love this stuff! He arranges to have Wood picked up from her home on the pier and brought to the studio. You would think the film Inside Daisy Clover, with a cast starring Natalie Wood, Christopher Plummer, Robert Redford, Roddy McDowall, and Ruth Gordon would be a somewhat entertaining film. Interesting sidenote on this film... it the movie William Frawley, of I Love Lucy fame, saw moments before he collapsed and died of a massive heart attack on Hollywood Boulevard on March of 1966.
Loved these photos though. Above McDowall and Wood enter soundstage 16. Above is another shot of the pier as it appears in the film. Inside Daisy Clover is a fantastic film. I'll make sure to follow the rules of the award. Sometimes bad is good. I kinda liked this movie, but I agree that it was pretty distracting to watch her as a teenager!I've always wanted to stalk around Santa Monica Pier to see these exact locations, so thanks so much for posting this! HiI actually own the very RECORD BOOTH that Natalie Wood used at the Santa Monica Pier in "INSIDE DAISY CLOVER". I had been looking forward to watching it on one of my Sunday classic movie-a-thons which I end with a new Mad Men episode on Sunday nights. Here's the website if you want to learn more abou the WB tours: http://www2.warnerbros.com/vipstudiotour/. Robby you are so right not the best movie, but I still enjoy it for some perverse reason. Santa Montica Pier Bridge (February 2010). I've been on the tour before, but it would probably take me all day (or more) to try to find where those scenes where filmed! Edit. Hi Simmone,I've covered two films from the 1970s that have filmed in Venice. Natalie's breakdown scene was on the money and the whole movie was very atmosphereic and forboding. Natalie Wood, Christopher Plummer, Robert Redford, Roddy McDowall, and Ruth Gordon, Lucille Ball's Dressing Room - Behind the Scenes Look. Above Roddy McDowall, one of the studio execs, meets with Wood at the Swan Studio lot. Needless to say, "Inside Daisy Clover" is not on my list of favorites.
The sanitarium reminded me of Pauline Frederick's home. In this blog post I have captured some of scenes from both the studio and the pier to compare how the locations appear today. Look it up on Google images. As you can see from the images, these locations have changed, but not as dramatically as one might think. I know the Malibu beach house blown up had belonged to silent star Barbara La Marr. Here are the links to the posts:HARRY & TONTO http://dearoldhollywood.blogspot.com/2012/02/harry-and-tonto-1974-film-locations.htmlTHE BIG FIXhttp://dearoldhollywood.blogspot.com/2012/02/big-fix-1978-film-locations-part-two.htmlI'm sure I'll get around to more in the future. Once again, welcome back and I've awarded you the One Lovely Blog award:http://hollywooddreamland.blogspot.com/2010/02/one-lovely-blog-award.html. Above is a screenshot showing the trailer that Natalie Wood and Ruth Gordon (Wood's mother in the film) live in located on the pier. 30's singers were not great to begin with. Thank you - I loved this post. I also saw that movie then and kind of thought the same thing....ehhh....soso. I've tried to watch since but can't even get through it. Couldn't sing; couldn't dance; and the acting...well, surely they could have gotten a better Maria. I had not heard of this film but will have to check it out to see as you said the WB Studio and Santa Monica Pier. My 2 cents, the film gets better with each viewing for me. ps.thanks for the wonderful blogging.
And thanks for pointing out that funny pointy roof building on the pier. The booth actually still has the scratch in the wood to the left of the window seen in the opening sequence.
Dexter Haven, Many thanks for the award! Above is the entrance to Swan Studios which is really the Warner Bros.
In the background we can see what is the main executive building on the Warner Bros. lot. She later sends the recording to the movie studios hoping she will be noticed. Quite the contrary. Loved it then-still love it today (when I watched it again). Merry Go-Round Building, Santa Monica Pier (February 2010), Santa Monica Pier as seen in Inside Daisy Clover. The booth is not a prop -it's real and WORKS! Quite the contrary.
Thanks, Kevin R. The "funny, pointy-roofed building" you pointed out in the background of Natalie's & Ruth Gordon's home on the SM Pier is the Merry-Go-Round building. Especially on a nice day! It is certainly fascinating to see the places the movie was filmed, even though it is a crummy movie. I think I'll have to give the film a few more runs - see if it is one of those films that grows on me :). And here's the really strange thing: it has doodling in it from its lifetime spent at Graumans Chinese Theatre, including "James Dean" scratched into the woodwork looking very very similar to known handwriting of James Dean.Email me at RecordBooth@gmail.com and I'll send photos!Bill. Not necessarily for the story or having to stretch my imagination to believe Natalie was a 15 year old.I love the old Hollywood behind the scenes, the cars, the beautiful homes and sets. Inside Daisy Clover - Film Locations Inside Daisy Clover (1965) You would think the film Inside Daisy Clover, with a cast starring Natalie Wood, Christopher Plummer, Robert Redford, Roddy McDowall, and Ruth Gordon would be a somewhat entertaining film.
Sorry- got to disagree.
Natalie really bored the heck out of me in this one. Always an honor to be recognized by peers. It looks to be the same tree from the "Inside Daisy Clover" movie still. I love this blog! I just hated it. It doesn't seem like my comments on your blog are going through?
These booths are extremely rare as it is (only about 100 were ever made), and this is the only one ever seen with windows. Below is the same building as it appears on the Santa Monica Pier today. I couldn't tell where this was on the lot immediately, but then I noticed the different rooftops and was able to match them up. I can't believe it's still there...I wonder how old it is?I think IDC is not a great movie--terrible script.However, I thought Natalie Wood made the perfect Maria in WSS.Even Deborah Kerr ("The King and I") and Audrey Hepburn ("My Fair Lady")were dubbed; it was a very common practice in Hollywood.Rita Moreno was dubbed in WSS, by Betty Wand; Just about everyone who had a singing part in WSS was dubbed, except Tucker Smith.Love your site and appreciate all of the work you have put into it.
Above is a screenshot of the building as seen in the film and below is the same building as it appears today - and it still has the merry go-round! Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica, California, USA (pier and carousel scenes) 5 of 5 found this interesting Interesting? In fact the only one that didn't bore me was Ruth Gordon but I was teetering on that one too. And I think "Splendor in the Grass" is definitely one of Wood's better films.Sarah,Thanks for the comment. WB Soundstage 16 Entrance (February 2010), Above is a screenshot showing some of the soundstages on the Warner Bros. lot and below are the same buildings as they appear today. I agree Natalie Wood was a very fine actress, esp in Splendor.
It follows a tomboy who becomes a Hollywood actress and singer. Showing all 3 items Jump to: Filming Locations (2) Filming Dates (1) Filming Locations. As for Natalie Wood, she was damn lucky to get "West Side Story." I like the film mainly for the scenery but I have to say that the book is one of my favourite reads in the world.
I knew I would probably strike a nerve with some for dissing a Wood film - but hey - everyone finds interest in different things :) And you should sure make a trip to the Santa Monica Pier at some point. The only change I would have made is making Daisy older. Inside Daisy Clover (1965) Filming & Production. I'll have to get a better picture of that one too next time I'm at the pier now that I have a better sense of where it and those scenes were actually filmed.
Inside Daisy Clover is a 1965 American drama film based on Gavin Lambert's 1963 novel of the same name, directed by Robert Mulligan and starring Natalie Wood. The building to the right is the Mill where they create many of the sets and the set pieces. Hi da90027. That's awesome that you've got access to the lot!
I wondered if you know of many films that are set in Venice around the 60s 70s?Thanks, Simmone. Amazing! I've also heard recordings of Natalie singing the songs from the film that were not used and she does an adequate job. Robby do you happen to know what homes were used? C.K. Studio lot in Burbank, California. It wasn't her best. Below is a shot looking where the trailer stood in the film. Yes No. Those soundstage photos are neat; did you go on a tour of the studios? Sorry but I loved the movie. Nevertheless, I think the film is worth watching to get some glimpses of the Warner Bros. studio lot as it appeared in the mid-1960s as well as the Santa Monica Pier. Hi Tom,No, I didn't go on the tour as I already have access to the lot, but there are tours available. Always fascinating to see the changes. I think what bothers me the most is watching Natalie Wood play a 15 year-old tomboy when she was already in her late twenties.
The studio gate seen in the film is completely fake.
If the film was accurate, Wood's chauffeur would be driving towards the exit of the studio, not entering the studio. This film is terrible! This film is terrible! Did you notice the tree across from the building (courthouse?) Thanks Dave. And I couldn't agree more about Natalie Wood's casting in "West Side Story." She's a beautiful actress, but as far as the talents that her role required for that film, I'm shocked someone else didn't get the role of Maria. At the beginning of the film Wood walks into the old Merry Go-Round building found at the front of the famous Santa Monica Pier to make a record of herself singing. If you look carefully you will notice a funny pointy roof building towards the back of both images. In fact there were two tour groups who passed me while I was taking my photos. So, although the film is terrible for entertainment value I still recommend watching this film if you're interested in seeing the Warner Bros. lot and the Santa Monica Pier as they appeared in the 1960s. Enjoy your blog-thanks for the photos. Loved seeing the changes. I just watched "Inside Daisy Clover" on TCM.
I saw the movie as a teen-ager when it first came out. Cool! The soundstage where the people are standing in both images is currently being used for the television show.
