Book Review: Hunting Hollywood by Rick Garland

Hunting Hollywood by Rick Garland is a new filming locations book released on January 10, 2015 that explores Garland's favorite childhood and adult TV shows and films. Garland's book is rich in detail that begins each TV show or film with a brief plot synopsis, anecdotal stories, filming location address (and additional directions for locations without an address), and screenshots from the TV Show/film along with photos of the actual location today. The book is over 400 pages but is a quick read and easy to locate your favorite TV show/film by using the table of contents or the filming location (by city) using the index. 

The book covers a variety of filming locations mostly in the greater LA area with roughly 30% located in the SFV which was obviously my greatest area of interest. Some of the locations I was aware of  but I was still humbled to learn of locations for The Brady Bunch pilot house in Studio City, various North Hollywood locations from Scrubs TV show, and the Casino staircase from Back To The Future 2 in Universal City. 

With a majority of filming conducted on the streets of LA, this book is a handy reference for classic 70's, - 2000's TV shows and films. You can get an idea of Garland's favorite TV shows/films from the table of contents at the Amazon Look Inside! feature by clicking on the book image.

The book can purchased from for $18.30, $4.99 on Kindle, or free for Kindle unlimited subscribers.
