I do not sell these models. This site is only dedicated to my private collection.



Locations Detail


   Starting from today, possibly once a week, I want to start a new section in this site that will not deal with modeling, but it will discuss about a TV series very dear to us, "The Dukes of Hazzard". To be more specific, this section will discuss about the set in the Warner Bros studios used in the late 70's and early 80's to represent the Hazzard County. In each episode, I will examine a building linked to some particular episode or some character from the series, showing how it was during the filming of "The Dukes of Hazzard", as appeared in other series or movies and possibly how it looks today. I will use some photos taken by me during my visit to Warner Bros Studios in 2009 ... sooner or later I would like to visit it another time so I will update my photos! But now let's start! I found a photo of the central square of the set where they all buildings in the set were numbered.

   Today we start by describing the building (marked by the number 20) that in "The Dukes of Hazzard" was the Boss Hogg's house. This building has the characteristic of having two faces: one facing on the street was just used as a Boss Hogg's house. Below you can see a frame extracted from just one episode, where you can see the Boss Hogg's Cadillac parked right in front. Before that, it was used as a main residence in the series "Jimmy Stewart Show", series not very know by us in Italy.

   This building was used as the old residence of Deckard (Harrison Ford) in Blade Runner: you can see it in one of the photographs that Deckard looks when he tries to recall his past.

   This building was used as a house of James Dean in "East of Eden": The following picture is a comparison between the building in a recent photo and a frame of the movie.

   Below another comparison between a frame of the film "East of Eden" and the building in a recent photo.

   Also in the 80s, right towards the end of filming of Hazzard, the building was also used as the home of the main character of the movie "Deadly Friend". The main character is Matthew Laborteaux, famous for his roles in "The House on the Prairie" and "Whiz Kids".

   In more recent times has been used for Sookie's house in the TV series "Gilmore Girls". In this case, the town took the name of Stars Hallow. The second face, on the back of the building, has never been used in Hazzard, but has become more famous for being the home of Lorelay in "Gilmore Girls". The garden in front of this second face, however, was used for scenes in the garden of the farm of Uncle Jessie.

   This part of the building was also used in the TV series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Cronicles" and recently has been changed and is now used as a dwelling in the TV series "Pretty Little Liars".

   Here it's how I found these two buildings during my tour in L.A. in April 2009.

   Below you can see more pictures about the Boss Hogg's house with the famous Cadillac parked right in front and some shots of the interior.

   In these two pictures you can see some corners of the house used at the time in "The Dukes of Hazzard" and then in "Gilmore Girls" (you can see from the cabinet that Boss Hogg opened and the wooden columns).

   In these two images, however, you can see how the set it was modified internally: the first image refers to the visit I made in 2009, while the second refers to the last changes made with "Pretty Little Liars" (you can always notice the same cabinets and wooden columns).

   Finally, a 3D air picture from Google Maps where you can see the location of the building relative to the rest of the square.

   See you next week with some other interesting building of our Hazzard!
