Teenagers From Outer Space (1959)


My favorite episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 has always been Teenagers From Outer Space.  It wasn't until my last viewing that I thought about trying to track down some of the locations used in the film.  Some were tough to find, but all are mostly still here.

First up is the gas station, which of course has gone through quite a bit of renovation, however the house next to it is mostly the same...

Betty's house is one of the few houses on this Hollywood block which is still standing....

I had to get  a shot of the pretty wild woman who lives there and was kind enough to let me go in the back...

Alice's house is a filming location staple seen in  Rebel Without A Cause, Secret Admirer, and more...
