St. Charles & Carpenter Avenue footage


Quite a find! Not My own, but still a graduation day at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School in North Hollywood, CA, albeit mine was Jr. High. The uniforms are all the same, as is the building and surrounding structures, rendering this piece of footage timeless.

Additionally, the location was also used in one of the scenes in the background of "Merchants of Death" in the Knight Rider series.

As an amusing side note, after the recent sex scandal disclosures of February of this year, Cardinal Roger Mahony was relegated to quietly reside at this perish and was stripped of public duties. ∞

An educational film shot at Carpenter Avenue Elementary School in Studio City, CA, where I attended from 5th-6th grades. However, this film was made before I arrived. Considering it is quite beautiful and idyllically set in the local hills, I can see why this location was chosen. Seems like they went on a zoo field trip that day.

Also, this school was highlighted in the film Monster Squad where the boys attended. ∞
