Glendale On Film: Double Indemnity

Tropico's beautiful Southern Pacific Railroad Depot is a crucial location in Billy Wilder's wonderful film noir Double Indemnity, based on the novel by James M. Cain. Here's a screen capture of the station in the film accompanied by shots I've taken recently.

A photo of the depot in 1927.

The current depot was constructed in 1923 and replaced the original Tropico Station (ahem) built in 1883.

Buster Keaton used this station in a silent film, "The Collegiate" about 1926 or 27
