The Filoli Mansion, Canada Road, Woodside, off Highway 280 between San Francisco and San Jose (tel: 650.364.8300, admission charge)
The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is the setting for 1976 thriller Two Minute Warning.
Heaven Can Wait location: The mansion: Filoli Estate, Woodside, California
Confusingly, this is not a remake, not of Ernst Lubitsch’s 1943 Heaven Can Wait, but of the 1941 Here Comes Mr Jordan.
The mansion, whose name derives from the family motto: ‘Fight, Love, Life’, was seen in the opening credits of TV soap Dynasty, featured in Wayne Wang’s Joy Luck Club and was more recently seen as Michael Douglas’ home in David Fincher's The Game.
The football game was filmed at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, 3911 South Figueroa Street, Exposition Park in Los Angeles.
