Hollywood Plays Itself

Authors Harry Medved and Bruce Akiyama have come up with a book that's a must for any movie buff who steps foot in Southern California. "Hollywood Escapes" features famous movie settings across the region, such as the "Star Wars" sand dunes, the chapel from "Kill Bill" and the Indian caves seen in "The Doors."

You can find the book here, or show up at Book Soup on Sunday for a book signing featuring Medved.

Medved e-mailed us to spread the word that he'll conduct a walking tour of famed movie sights along the Sunset Strip after the book signing:

We are hosting a free walking tour of Sunset Strip landmarks, as seen in such diverse movies as THE DOORS, THE TRIP, I LOVE YOU, ALICE B. TOKLAS, RIOT ON SUNSET STRIP and MURDER, MY SWEET – it follows the book-signing at Book Soup at 8818 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood at 2 pm.

Harry also let us know that there are several Franklin Avenue-adjacent spots mentioned in the book, including Runyon Canyon, Wattles Park, Bronson Canyon, Cedar Grove, and others.
