Karate Kid Part III (1989)



One of my favorite bad movies.... the Karate Kid Part III went "back to basics" but couldn't recapture the spirit of the original (see those locations here and here).

First up, Daniel and Mr. Miyagi set up shop on an abandoned building.   The building is gone (or was never there to begin with)....

Across the street is the pottery shop, next to the train tracks....

The villain lives in the Frank Lloyd Wright house up in the Hollywood Hills, as all villains do.....

And of course, a quick visit to the South Seas Apartments....

Me and Ralph!
