Remember the '80s classic FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH?
OK, remember the characters Rat and Stacy (Brian Backer and Jennifer Jason Leigh)?
Images from here.
Remember the scene when Rat and Stacy had their big date at the Swiss restaurant? You know ...with the scary looking waitress and when Rat forgot his wallet. That scene was filmed at the Matterhorn Chef. It's just around the corner from me. It was a well known Valley landmark. It's now the new home for another well known Valley restaurant, Barone's (which used to be on Ventura Blvd.)
Images from here and here.P.S.
Watch the movie again and go there. The interior decor is less Alpine now but you'll still recognize it. I love useless trivia like this, especially when I live near it and from a movie that I love.
The Billy Bob Thorton version of BAD NEWS BEARS had many scenes in there.
