The movie was set in California. I noticed California plates on one of the cars when I walked up Hastings. "There was bloody ice on the street," a Downtown Eastsider pointed out afterwards, laughing.
Photo: Note the snow on the roof of the police SUV which was in an accident on the block where the Halle Berry movie was being filmed. This photo was taken around 8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 14, just a couple of hours before Berry was running through the intersection at the end of the block.
The Downtown Eastsider watched three takes of Halle running through the intersection. "Each time, the cars got faster", he said.
He was chuckling about the big afro hairdos on the Black guys trying to look like they were right out of the sixties. One guy with an afro whose job it was to walk toward the intersection during each take, told the Downtown Eastsider that Berry was playing a woman with a dual personality. He explained that during this scene, she had just switched personalities and was getting herself out of a situation her other personality had gotten her into.
