Historic L.A. in ‘Illegal’ | Part 5

Illegal, 1955
In this portion of “Illegal,” we have a long chase sequence. I’m not able to identify all the locations so any help would be appreciated.

Illegal, 1955
I’m guessing this is Fourth Street, shooting toward Bunker Hill.

  1. Gordon Pattison says:

    The first shot is 4th Street looking West toward Bunker Hill. In the distance, you can see the bridge where Grand Avenue crosses over the 4th Street cut so this is after 1954 when the cut was done. There seem to be two cars pursuing the Ford. One is a 1955 or 56 Lincoln I think. The other appears to be a 1954 Mercury sedan.
