Thank you! Dad owned the Chevron station across from Hart Park. Mom worked at Hubbard’s Dry Goods it was great to see it. Great memories.
My dad had Tex Williams Village on San Fernando Road outside of town.I miss home!
Well then, I will have to stroll through Newhall in my “Frank Sinatra tribute” look singing “Suddenly”. I am already in a Volkswagen GTI commercial, being one of 8 selected off YouTube singing ” My Way”!!
Very nicely done. I really enjoyed the modern day comparisons to the film locations used.
This film was full of wonderful memories of my life which I always felt were boring. Sleepy little town, etc. Now I would like to see it again!
The Frank Sinatra movie Suddenly was filmed in Newhall and Saugus. Here is a short film that intersperses clips with today’s locales.
