From the original Halloween movie (1978) with Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, this was the Myers’ residence. During the time of the shooting, this home was vacant and at a different location. It was later relocated to this site which is down the street from where it originally set. This current location is actually right across the street from the hardware store that Myers burglarized. Today it is is a business office still in the city of Pasadena.
Check out my Screen Shots album for another view of this location.

1912 – Thomas Ince creates the first modern movie studio, “Inceville”, in Santa Monica, CA, and begins mass-producing westerns. Three years later, Carl Laemmle acquires 230 acres in the sparsely-populated San Fernando Valley and creates the Universal Film Manufacturing Company, with an entire functioning city – Universal City – devoted to making movies. Laemmle opens his studio to tourists, who can watch the filmmaking action on the set.

While the films of Pickford, Chaplin, and Bara offer escapism, other filmmakers seek to portray a harsher reality. In 1913, Carl Laemmle agrees to distribute TRAFFIC IN SOULS, an exposé on the illicit practice of luring immigrant girls into prostitution. Despite warnings of box office poison, the film is a financial success and the message is applauded by critics. In 1916, Thomas Ince produces CIVILIZATION, one of American film’s first grand epics and an anti-war plea for peace. But the film comes too late: the United States enters the Great War in April 1917. By the war’s end, the once-unstoppable French and Italian movie industries are crippled by the conflict in their backyards, but American moviemaking survives unscathed. What was once a market ruled by international film is now Hollywood’s for the taking.

Part III coming soon…
