Glad you liked it Greg.

Lior , this wasn't on the set -- it was taken at a Gas Station. Hopefully Sandi may tell us more about it. :D :smt006

Yes, but surely the gas station is the one used in the movie at the start - ie, he's wearing the suit that he wore for that scene - he's not "off duty", but on location?

Here's what Sandi wrote about it on the Insiders.......


Here is Elvis in Van Nuys filming .... this was at a gas station in town, not a movie set . Pam lived right across the street and we'd spent the night at her apt. We look out the window because we heard all this commotion- movie trucks, lights, cameras etc. etc - although we couldn't see Elvis we knew he was there because we spotted some of the boys so you've never seen 4 girls get dressed, make-up on and across the street as fast as we did!!! We weren't prepared so this is the only photo that was taken because there was only one shot left on the camera

Finding out where Presley filmed the gas station scene in Clambake, is frickin' awesome! My entire adult life I have searched locations they used in filming his films. I would love to see some then and now shots. Hint hint :lol:! Seriously, thank you for letting me/ us know where the scene was filmed! It's funny how much location work in and around LA was actually used in the latter films, when compared to a few mid - 60's shot entirely on soundstage - studio lots! Man, if I was living in the States, I'd know what I'd be doing and that my friends would be a road trip (if it was safe to do so!) with my digital camera!

Hopefully Sandi will see your post Funky you never know, if we find out the exact address someone may take some now pics for you....providing they live nearby of course.

Funky -- this is from Sandi

**Pam lived on Sepulveda Avenue at the time and it was right across the street from there but I don't remember the cross street. I looked in an old address book I kept (actually, I kept them all--especially the ones with all of Elvis' phone numbers in them from various homes) I actually coded the darn things so if I lost the book, no one would know whose numbers they were! Anyway, no address for Pam - just a phone number

Elvis was at Winchells that day with Shelly Fabulous and Will Hutchins according to the info she wrote. She actually dated it by saying that she got the autograph exactly one week before Elvis got married....that would make it April 24th, 1967 by my count...........hope that tidbit helps............uf



UF to the rescue!!! Thank You :D

If so, there's a mobil station on one corber, a chevron on another, a CVS on one and a McDonalds on the other

Hi Gang,
I finally had a chance to drive by this area today and I think there is a good chance that the gas station location for Clambake is indeed the Chevron station at Sherman Way and Sepulveda. After I have made some new screen captures from the movie, I will go back to take current photos to be sure that we have a match. Stay tuned.

The gas station location / site is at the southeast corner of Sherman Way and Balboa Blvd. in Van Nuys. The gas station is now a 7-11, but across the street diagonally you can still see the sign showing that the Waadt Appliance Store is still there 47 years later. Also… next door to where the gas station stood the window where Elvis and Will Hutchins order sandwiches is still there at Mama's Donuts, 16844 Sherman Way, Van Nuys.

I live about 10 miles from there. I drove by there a while back and took some pics. If anyone is interested I'll try to post them. Seems that I can't attach them - may need to put them on photo sharing site and link to them...

"Clambake" was filmed in March & April, 1967. It was released on 11/22/1967.

That is really neat information. The appliance store must do one hell of a business! Please post the pictures, that would be awesome.

Dug around a bit and found some neat photos from this day's shooting on Sherman Way in Van Nuys, CA:

Sitting with co-star Will Hutchins at the Mama's Donuts window - March 1967
After the scene was finished and the window closed, Elvis signed some autographs.

Signing autographs by Mama's Donuts windows - March 1967
Pal Marty Lacker in the background.



Turns out TV actor Lee Majors, then starring in ABC's "The Big Valley," came by to say hello. He'd have a cameo in the film.



670300_w Patti Chandler_Harvey Yeary_Majors_Mildred Yeary.JPG
Chatting with Patti Chandler, Harvey Yeary, Majors, Mildred Yeary - March 1967
Chandler was Lee's girlfriend, the Yearys were his step-parents, visiting from Kentucky. Screen-grab from home movie made that day.

Looking at Mama's Donuts and the 7-11 lot on Sherman Way - September 2014
You can see the green-framed, windows at Mama's Donuts where Elvis was signing those autographs!
Where the truck is parked is probably where Elvis stopped his red Corvette to fill up with "Heywood" gas.

Minor correction to the first line of your post, it should read "Sherman Way, not Sherman Avenue".

Thank you for the additional photos.
