I was watching this movie the other day and it made me think of the location shots for “The Caine Mutiny.”
Oddly enough, the location used in the opening credits looks nothing like those used in the film. Apparently continuity was not a concern. This sequence appears to be a set (note the lighting).
Unless sunlight comes from two directions….
[Update: This is the 1952 film “About Face.” Please congratulate Michael Ryerson, Bruce Panaccione, Mary Mallory, Gary Martin, James Zeruk, Coto, LC and Duane Laible for identifying the location and the film; and Mike Hawks, Dewey Webb, Herb Nicholas and Bronson Bias for identifying the film. ]
And look who’s in it as a mystery cadet. Note: People who style hair in period films, please pay attention to the men’s haircuts.
This, however, is not a set…..
Wait a minute. Those buildings….
This looks suspiciously like a Los Angeles institution of higher learning…
The building in the background to the right looks particularly familiar. Hmmmm.
Never mind the crowd, look at the building.
Hm. Looks awfully hilly to be USC.
If I didn’t know better I would almost guess that those are the Baldwin Hills in the background.
Finally an overall shot… And then we go to…
Hey, wait a minute! This doesn’t match the last shot!
Continuity was apparently not a concern.
No, wait! Now the outfield looks like this!
I’m going to quit before my head explodes. Any ideas on our mystery location(s)?
