It is always fun to go and see film locations everybody knows. This time the trip was up to the “Bat Cave,” just around the corner. Literally around the corner, as the most famous cave of all caves sits right there in Griffith Park.
Here it is:
Not too exciting? Well, then take a look here – with Batman and Robin in action. The clip is short, only 3:31 minutes and quite entertaining, because one sees a few examples of other films, where the Bronson Caves figure too.
To name only a few, scenes in these films and tv series were shot there:
I Am A Fugitive On A Chain Gang (1932)
Sagebrush Trail (1933)
Julius Caesar (1953)
The Searchers (1956)
Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956)
Have Rocket, Will Travel (1959)
Ride The High Country (1962)
Lost Horizon (1973)
The Scorpion King (2002)
As an aside – whenever one sees snow in these movies, it is artificial. Griffith Park might sport famous scenery, but when it comes to snow, the props people have to get to work.
