Location Information Update

We really appreciate the steadily increasing interest that the Site seems to be enjoying, not only from within the UK but from other parts of the Globe which all helps to fill those elusive "Unknown Locations" gaps. Recently, many of those contacting us have, or been able to, support their information with at least Google Images but two recent pieces of information lay hidden within the screen grabs.

Nick Hart recognised Morgan, a suitable Case for Treatment 049 and 050 as White Lodge in Richmond Park, home of The Royal Ballet School. Nick lived there as a child and one of his earliest memories is the hammer and sickle being laid on lawn and has just acquired a copy of the DVD to go down memory lane. Now it is identified all we need is someone to visit and take those shots.

By coincidence, another Nick (Cooper) tracked down O'Lucky Man! 037 to Tottenham Court Road underground station, now under serious redevelopment due to Crossrail. His support Website references can be seen with that screen shot.

Thanks to you both for solving those locations.

Does Vincent Price thrill you, or make your blood curdle?

Which ever it is we can, perhaps, add to your experience as we have been in correspondence with Peter Fuller, curator of The Sound of Vincent Price blog and the Vincent Price Journal. With the benefit of all that knowledge he also conducts walks in London based on Vincent Price's connection there, including Theatre of Blood and has been kind enough to acknowledge the help that Reelstreets has given him in pinpointing some of the more obscure locations. He has recently won a Rondo Award for his blog My First Trip Abroad - Vincent Price (July-August) 1928) which can be found at:

Peter is currently writing a feature about the locations for his blog as well as for The Spooky Isles website.

If you want to further sink your teeth into something meaty have a look at: and

We wish you further success with your blogs.

FILM: Prince Valiant (1997)

Richard Lysons is currently working on an article concerning the film Spring and Port Wine for the Manchester Bolton and Bury Canal Society Magazine and says that he will give Realstreets a decent "plug", so thank you for that Richard. As it is holiday time he is kindly drawing our attention to the fact that the 1997 film Prince Valiant with Katherien Heigl and Joanna Lumley had its exterior and interior scenes shot in North Wales. The Movie Map North Wales (2006 edition) listing:

Penrhyn Castle, Caernafon Castle, Capel Curig, Beaumaris, Llanfair PG, Blaenau Festiniog, Beddgelert, Trawsfynydd, Gwrych Castle.

There is an interesting short "behind the scenes" clip on Youtube at

Does anyone have a copy of this film so that we can take some grabs and use Richard's knowledge and interest to cover this film? Maybe YOU have a holiday booked in Wales!
