STORY & PHOTOS
1997’s “LA Confidential,” an old-Hollywood murder mystery starring Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, and Kim Basinger, exposes the seedy underbelly of scandal, police corruption, and tabloid journalism, and won two Academy Awards. Living up to its name, the film was shot almost entirely in Los Angeles and Hollywood, and at some legendary Hollywood landmarks.
One not-so-glamorous location is the Hollywood Center Hotel, where Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey) finds the dead body of Matt Reynolds (Simon Baker).
The hotel is just as rundown and sketchy looking in person.
