I was watching this movie the other day and thought: that’s….
[Update: Let me begin by saying that I got this one wrong. I’m not a Westsider and my first guess, when it went by, was that this is the Malibu tunnel. Nope, it’s not.
[Michael Ryerson correctly pegged the movie as “Harper” and suggests the tunnel is on Las Virgenes Road or Kanan Dume Road. Mary Mallory, Greg Clancey, William Stansel and Lee Rivas opt for the Sepulveda tunnel. Arye Michael Bender and Barry OB like the tunnel on Topanga Canyon. B.J. Merholz says Malibu Canyon and Walt Daily says it’s a tunnel in Needles, Calif.
[I didn’t have the time to follow all the routes on Google Street View to verify which is right – so many stories and only one Larry Harnisch.]
For fun, here’s a list of tunnels on state highways. It doesn’t list tunnels on county highways, however.
Most of “Harper” is interiors and (rather tacky) process shots… There are a few exteriors (freeways, a gas station, twisting mountain roads)… and this fun shot:
So much for the Porsche.
But this is what I really like about “Harper.”
