Wally's Filling Station
When Jack Thompson gave me his theory on the location of
Station I didn't buy it at first. This is
because I was sure that the opposite side
of the street was
lined with trees.
In the attached composite, Andy pulls into Wallys with his car
pumps and the building. Goober is standing by the
Regular pump, looking
towards the building. As Andy and
Goober converse with each other, the
camera keeps cutting
from Goober's point of view (looking at Andy) and Andy's
of view (looking at Goober.)
From Goober's view we are still looking towards the building
(we can see the
soda pop machine behind the squad car.) From
Andy's view we see the
opposite side of the street, and it
is lined with trees. But this is a fake.
If we were
allowed to see Andy's real point of view and beyond, we'd see
the USMC quanzit huts!
As I scrutinized it, I realized that from the medium shot when
Andy pulls in
Goober is standing by the SUPER pump, but on
the close-ups looking a Goober
he is in front of the REGULAR
pump. The trees that we are seeing in the
background are the
same trees in the backgound of the shot where Andy pulls
to the pumps.
These are my composites showing Wally's Filling Station:
