DICKIE ROBERTS: FORMER CHILD STAR
About The Production
Filmed in and around Los Angeles, "Dickie Roberts:
Former Child Star" takes place in a variety of locations and locales
including Hollywood, West Hollywood, Holmby Hills, Torrance, Monrovia and
The production spent a week in a beautiful, upscale
neighborhood in Pasadena where they shot the exteriors of the houses of the
Finneys, the family that Dickie hires to help him relive his childhood, and
their uptight neighbors, the Gertrudes. The remainder of the film was shot on
various stages on the Paramount Pictures lot.
One of the first scenes of the film, entitled the "Quake
by the Lake," was shot on Stage 16. It was a lifelike recreation of a
celebrity boxing match between Emmanuel Lewis, portraying himself as the former
child star of the real-life television series "Webster," and Dickie
Roberts (Spade), portraying the former child star of the fictitious television
series "The Glimmer Gang."
Next, on Stage 15, the production shot the interior scenes of
Grace and George Finneys' (Mary McCormack and Craig Bierko) house as well as
Sam and Sally's (Scott Terra and Jenna Boyd) tree house. There, the adult
Dickie makes his regression into childhood, and ultimately, his progression back
to the life of a normal person.
