    Earlier in the thread we talked about daVinci's. I didn't realized the name was mentioned in NO MORE MR NICE GUY (2), when she sort of met Mitch and he called her a cab. (Or I just forgot if it was mentioned here earlier.)

    Hey.
    Lucy.
    Have you been to da Vinci's yet? - No.
    I haven't.

    Again on Da Vinci's. In S04E02, Lucy and friends are sitting around the S/F pool, wondering what to do "tonight". One friend suggests "Da Vinci's". They go and later that night after getting her buzz on, Mitch sends Lucy home in a cab.

    The address is 7402 Greenville Ave, Dallas.

    Doing a little research, looks like back then Da Vinci's was public by day, private membership club by night, frequented by the so-called jet-setters and wannabe's. Sometime around then it turned into public at night as well. Based on the scene, it looks like this location is slightly downhill, with cars passing on Pineland.

    I found this pic at the location. I'm assuming front columns in this pic are those which supported the porte-cochère in the previous pic. At picture time below it looks to be part of outside dining/hanging.

    Here it is after the fire. What's seen below has since been demolished. What's shown is a different, smaller entrance. The port-cochere could've been in front of this entrance, or could've been in the section destroyed in the fire. It's possible the entrance below was to the private club, and the port-cochere was a separate restaurant entrance. I've been searching and cannot find any old pictures of Da Vinci's.

    Had these questions posed to me a couple of weeks ago and just saw them.

    Do you have idea where Nurse Johnson's house is located from the episode The Lady Vanishes? And also do you know where the houses are that Jeannine O Brein shows to Bobby in the episode I dream of Jeannine from season 13 of Dallas?

    Do you know where the scene was filmed where JR and Bobby are walking towards Harv's office and he meets them half way. The scene takes places in the episode Daddy Dearest from episode 9 of season 13 of Dallas.

    the bridge crosses Avenue of the Stars in Century City. https://goo.gl/maps/8uBr9Q1VWdu3UeVAA

    I could never find the houses she shows him. But I think one of the houses is the same house that the tanker captain lives in!

    Definitely the same. I remember both recently, and also had the same house number. Good info on the foot bridge.

    Clubs da Vinci & Elan...from TEXAS MONTHLY July 1979. ELAN is mentioned earlier in this thread, near the building where Harve's office is.

    I like the subtly different age ranges of the clientele - the 42 and 43 year-olds are just hanging on at Elan before riding out their disco twilight years at Da Vinci’s. Lucy and crew should have been somewhere else the night of the Mitch encounter. Maybe they were looking for older men?

    “Lots of chrome, spacious comfortable seating near the dance floor, mirrored ceiling” matches up to what we saw onscreen in s04e02. No arty nudes though.

    I had some time to plug away on Los Angeles CAD this afternoon. I started with the tanker captain’s house. We can see the house number 10815 on the house as Bobby approaches in s13e10. Compare this to the *neighborhood* to 10815 Pickford Way in Culver City. https://goo.gl/maps/5h8zSSqctC4b4qLj8 The surrounding homes and lot arrangements seem to be a match. The home appears to be a rebuild from what we saw onscreen. Thoughts?

    There were other houses Jeanne showed Bobby, but I don’t have leads on those.

    Definitely an upgrade. Have to go watch that scene again. It was a corner, for sure. Yeah, I kill a lot of time doing this too...tho' without your success or creativity.

    end of the season, so LA... was that the last scene in what was originally intended to be the season finale, before the scramble to write two more shows, leading to "let's shoot the bastard!"?

    Yep...this was followed by THE WHEELER DEALER and A HOUSE DIVIDED.

    LA? I didn't realize end-of-season ep's were done in LA in their entirety. I know the production team planned out the seasons' shots for Dallas. So I thought this would be Dallas. But thinking about it, Bobby took the briefcase to an LA pawnshop. So to me it could be either, unless I missed something along the way, which happens...

    Reminds me of Curtis Lake at Lover's Lane and Dickens.

    That was filmed at Valhalla Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.

    98FC2203-38C6-422E-9B84-1DBE9437F964.jpeg

    It was also used as the burial locations for Hillary Taylor, Jock and Ellie in J.R.’s dream in Conundrum, and the phony gravesites of Nicholas Pierce’s parents.

    I haven’t been able to get on here lately. When I try the boards are always down.
