Please watch this video from :12 to :16.




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJuapp9SORA


I recognize that this was 25 years ago and that the intersection may no longer look like this. I played around on Google. The intersection of 110 and W. Redondo Beach Blvd., looking east, is my best guess.



Appreciate any help. Thanks!

If the 110 freeway is in front of you and North is to the right, you'd be facing west. It could be Redondo Beach Blvd, as you go further east, it become Compton Blvd. There aren't a lot of streets that travel under the 110, which basically means , it is south of downtown. If it is Redondo Beach Blvd, the 110N entrance has been moved and a nursery is now there. The other place I was thinking it could have been is Sepulveda and the 110.

I understand, but I see a McDonalds behind the freeway, on the left. At first, the only McDonald's near the 110 I could find was the one at 15235 S Figueroa St, Gardena, CA 90248. So I was thinking the freeway directions might have gotten inverted due to construction (a longshot, I know).



But it turns out there is one at 850 W Rosecrans Ave, Gardena, CA 90247. So there's a more likely candidate. But the area today looks so different than it does in the video.



So, in short, the mystery continues . . .



Thanks all the same for your help.


P.S. It does kind of look like West Sepulveda and the 110 structurally, but it's just not clear. In the video, there is a McDonald's sign behind the freeway (i.e., west of the freeway), on the other side of the street as the "Sleazy-E" actor. Today, there is no McDonald's there. Obviously, it could have gone out of business within the past 25 years. This is why I need your guys' help.

I couldn't identify a McDonalds, but on the right size is a Chevron and possibly Shell gas station. It is at the 1:29 mark. It looks like there is Ross there now.

Rosecrans looks unlikely because it is above the freeway. Although they could have raised the road to go above the freeway, the buildings around it are on the same level.
