The park is located where the southernmost tip of the Sierra Nevada converges with the El Paso Mountains. Red Rock Canyon is an approximately 27,000 acres unit located along State Highway 14 in Kern County, about 80 miles east of Bakersfield and 25 miles north of Mojave.

Bronson Canyon, or Bronson Caves, is a section of Griffith Park in Los Angeles, California that has become famous as a filming location for a large number of movies and TV shows, especially westerns and science fiction, from the early days of motion pictures to the present. Its craggy and remote-looking setting, but easily accessible location, has made it a prime choice for filmmakers, particularly of low-budget films, who want to place scenes in a lonely wilderness.

Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park is a 932-acre park located in the Sierra Pelona Mountains, in northern Los Angeles County, California. It is in Agua Dulce between the Antelope Valley and the Santa Clarita Valley north of Los Angeles and seen easily by motorists driving the Antelope Valley Freeway.

In 1935, Universal Pictures assigned Stanley Bergerman as executive producer on the film Werewolf of London. Bergerman suggested the Vasquez Rocks as the location for what was supposed to be Tibet. Since then, Vasquez Rocks have been used innumerable times in motion pictures, various television series and in moving and still photography advertisements, and continue to be used in them today.

*The Bradbury Building* is an architectural landmark located at 304 Broadway at West 3rd Street in downtown Los Angeles, California. Built in 1893, the building was commissioned by Los Angeles gold-mining millionaire Lewis L. Bradbury and constructed by draftsman George Wyman from the original design by Sumner Hunt. - Wikipedia

A number of films and TV episodes have been shot at the Bradbury Building (though despite what you may have read, Double Indemnity was not one of them)

Franklin Canyon Park is a public park located near Benedict Canyon at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains. The park comprises 605 acres, and is located at the purported geographical center of the city of Los Angeles. The park features a 3-acre lake, a duck pond and over five miles of hiking trails. The lake and pond are visited by birds in the Pacific Flyway. The park was used for the hitchhiking scene in It Happened One Night, and the opening credits of The Andy Griffith Show.

I just watched the low-budget but tightly made noir Without Warning! (1952). Like the earlier Cris Cross did with the Bunker Hill neighborhood, WW preserves on film a part of Los Angeles that no longer exists, in this case the pre-Dodger Stadium Chavez Ravine, then a semi-rural Mexican enclave.

There's also a scene set in the Los Angeles River basin, two years before Them!
