Parts of LAL were filmed at Malibu - in fact, the opening shots of the movie were shot in Malibu using one of the mountain roads and then a corner where the road crosses PCH.
They also filmed near Santa Monica Pier where the footage of Elvis driving on the beach was taken.
They did some filming on a private road ... the last house on the road was what they used for Bernice's house in the movie. It belonged to two bachelors who rented it out to the production company for a couple of weeks for filming.
Next was Marineland--I'm sure you've seen the shots of Elvis and Susan Henning taken there. The convertible had a camera mounted on the hood and there were wires everywhere--I've got a photo of that somewhere
The Citizen-News building in Hollywood where the fight scene was filmed,,,and yes the "woman" in green was actually a man dressed as a woman. Although you can't see it in the photos, up close it was obvious "she" needed a shave...and her voice was definately male ... Lunches were catered on the set (in the back parking lot on big picnic tables that had been set up...Elvis, Vernon, the crew,a few fans, everyone all sat together for the lunches and snack breaks. It caused quite a buzz!
Oh, and Elvis never really wanted to admit the woman in green was a man, as much as everyone tried to tell him it was! I think he was in denial - pretty funny!!
