Re: House Of The Rising Sun Location Disclosed

Before this location was disclosed, I was wondering what are the words embedded in the ceiling (see red box in the picture below). It all makes sense now! The partial cue to the HOTRS was hiding in the scene after all! TEN........GI.....C..TT..Co. <=== you can make out only a few letters! Tennessee...

Okay, now it's time that we figure out where the main Comtron building is! http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/1876/01pilotmpg003978025.jpg In the past, some have mentioned it being located on Avenue Crocker in Santa Clarita, but multiple scans of the area have turned up nothing...

Re: House Of The Rising Sun Location Disclosed

Okay, I've just gone through the entire scene, and that screenshot is definitely taken from the HOTRS/Tennessee Gin & Cotton Co. location, and not the Cal Islands one. The house roof in the background is quite distinctive, coupled with the fact that it appears that no such style of house was bu...

Re: House Of The Rising Sun Location Disclosed

As can be seen from my post count, I seldom post on here , but I read this thread frequently, I have to say, major props to 1982 on finding/knowing/naming this location, surely one of the Holy Grails (along with the cube Comtron HQ) of Knight Rider locations.

Re: House Of The Rising Sun Location Disclosed

Thanks Bryan, and thanks for the arrows. They point out the correct spot. I can assure you it is indeed the correct location. Pictures are far and few if any, at least publicly. Privately, I know of group cast pictures at the location. For a comparison between then and today, there is one way that I...

House Of The Rising Sun Location Disclosed

For years, many have wondered where, or looked for the location of the “House of the Rising Sun” from the pilot episode “Knight of the Phoenix”. A while back, I mentioned revealing the location. For those interested, I will now do so. The closest clue had been a place called “Cal Islands” in Santa C...

Re: A Shameless Reminder Plug

I tried to clarify the meaning of Larson’s statement that he made on the Knight Rider DVD set with another author. In his response, he was highly insulted at being corrected, insisting that the so-called “original 4” Larson received were indeed the “first 1982 Trans Ams” produced as per Larson’s own...

Good luck with your book. Your interviews should help you with filming locations, if you thought of it. I don’t know if you got to interview Charles Napier before he passed away, but that was an opportunity for the “House Of The Rising Sun” location and to see some cast photos taken there. Of course...

A very sad time in Hollywood............

Along with the losses of Eddie Fisher and Tony Curtis,

"The Typewriter" of Stephen J. Cannell has been silenced.

Re: KITT in Smokey and the Bandit 3?

The Trans Am in Smokey and the Bandit 3 was a 1983 model, not a 1982. Pretty much a standard optioned car. It had a basic interior, not the same as used on the Knight Rider car. The model shown is inaccurate as it has the wrong seats. Probably just a left over 1982 model with an action figure. i do...

Re: Volo Museum's KITT

The car is indeed a Mark Custom "Replica", top to bottom.

Nothing about the car is or was screen used.

It is a replica Mark made from an 1983 Recaro Trans Am.

The Volo Museum is the same place "greeknight" got his Jack Sessums miniature model.
