And, for fun, Curbed LA put out a map of the locations used in The Artist (the only Oscar nominated film to be shot entirely in LA). For extra credit, here’s a blog about other silent film locations in LA.
For Extra Credit: Here’s David Denby’s (somewhat cranky) commentary in The New Yorker about the difference between silent films of old… and The Artist.
