After enjoying watching Harold and Maude on the UC Berkeley lawn http://www.bampfa.berkeley.edu/film/FN20398, my co-watcher suggested to visit the places of the scenes. We typed ‘ “Harold and Maude” filming’ scenes into google and found this: http://www.boffo.us/haroldandmaude/

The holy cross cemetery was impressive but left us with little clues that would help us to recognize scenes. Quite to the contrary though visiting the national golden gate cemetery. What a scary place to be, though I have to admit it has some power of attraction as off-putting as this might sound.

How cool would it be to have a map that includes literature and filming scenes. Imaging you go on a trip and Google Maps or Open Street Map shows you the exact locations of movies and books you love. I typed  ‘ “book scenes” and google maps’ and found this: http://www.placingliterature.com

I like the internet:-)
