Carbon Copy (1981)



Revisiting the 1981 film, Carbon Copy, was an.... experience.  It's no wonder that Denzel's debut has been buried in the vaults for so long.  Nonetheless, I decided to catch up on some of the locations for the movie.  As of this update, I was only able to get to a few so far, keep watching for future updates.
First up is the house, better known to me as the Mommie Dearest house...

The cheap motel is gone and has been replaced by an In 'N Out....

Here is the walk down to the motel they take later...

The Bagel restaurant is long gone, but the sign is still there...

The basketball court was going to be a toughie to find, but luckily I can count on franchises never leaving their location.  In this instance, the Winchell's and Baskin Robbins een across the street...

I had some trouble getting this shot from my car, but here is the first shot of their clunker going down the street...

The spot where they yell at the biker to get out of the way...

And the spot where they stop by the police officer...

The spot where he looks for some day labor opportunities has changed the most.   The only building that still exists in the spot is this one, which sported a green roof in the film...

Keep watching for more updates!
