“Halloween’s” 30th Anniversary…

Friday, October 31st, 2008







Two of the original houses from the 1978 hit film Halloween, starring Jaime Lee Curtis, are on Orange Grove Avenue, a tree-lined street in Hollywood. Many of the other locations in the film can be found in Pasadena and Alhambra.

In the film this was the Wallace residence where the murder of Laurie’s (Jaime Lee Curtis) best friend, Annie, took place. The house has changed as the garage on the left has been added since the film was made.

Across the street is the Doyle residence, where Laurie was baby-sitting Tommy. The house has changed very little in the last 30 years. The brick pillars are still in the front, however, there are now hedges between them. In the film, the children can be seen running out of the house and between the pillars and onto the street.
