The heart of Belgravia. Seaford House, 37 Belgrave Square, London SW1.
A better angle to replace my effort on 17/4/09. SJ
Richard Burton enters Seaford House.
Burton and Barry Foster in possibly Paddington or Victoria area.
No I was wrong: it's the Earl's Court area, to be precise the junction of Courtfield Gardens and Barkston Gardens, SW5. Blistering detective work by Neil Rigby who provided a proving still from Google, now replaced with a real shot. SJ
The sign behind says Arlington.
Burton's "unspeakable" hotel: I wonder whether the Arlington was real. Note the railings. SJ
Roger Moore outside the Tower Hotel, London E1.
Much the same though tricky for the car to park there nowadays. SJ.
Burton arrives at Richard Harris' "Hampstead" house.
Amazingly Neil Rigby has found this one, sensibly going back to the film to check before and after the then shot. It is nearby Twickenham studios. Baronsfield road, Richmond TW12QT. Copyright Google. And well done.
Stewart Granger and Foster at Richmond Lock on the west side.
Looks like Twickenham.
And is: this is Marble Hill Close, first found by "cpo77" on Britmovie. SJ
Reverse shot. Definitely Twickenham-ish.
And nice and close to the St Margaret's studios as well as the school fields seen below. SJ
Burton and Jack Watson at no 47.
And it's still no 47. SJ
Marble Hill, Twickenham, Middlesex.
Still a rugby pitch. SJ.
Harris overlooking the rugby pitch.
Now shot tweaked with Photoshop. SJ.
- 'Now' required
South Africa. Rather a challenging "now" opportunity.
Burton and Moore back in Belgrave Square though it's dark, they're in a car and it's only obvious when seeing the film.
Almost identical to 012 but set three months later. Filmed at the same time probably.
Rugby posts down for the summer. Seasonal variation for Reelstreets good value! SJ.
Burton and Paul Spurrier at Marble Hill.
