This scene was shot in Long Beach. “I call it a California bungalow, victim of the Philadelphia Experiment,” says John Watts of Cerritos. (But it’s not a hoax: We can still see the brave little bungalow, which appears to be pushing back.)
“What a tragedy,” our visitor continues. “Who in the world would ever dream of doing this?” We wonder, was the bungalow encroaching on the lot next door, so a judge allowed the lop? The commercial enterprise made an offer the homeowner couldn’t refuse? This town has no setback requirements?
By the looks of the rosebushes and a chair on the half-porch, curtains in the windows, and a bow on the door, somebody still lives in the bungalow. Do rooms on the right crash up against a concrete wall? And why does the bunker have an exit onto the porch? Very mysterious.
