Then we see Gina and Trudy enter a hotel lobby that is being used as an art studio. This was filmed at the Park Central Hotel, 640 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. The unique floor pattern and the neon sign in the window- “The Central Lounge” helped identify this location. We have seen this location used previously in The Savage.

Then we see Crockett continue to investigate. Location unknown.

Then we go to a roof-top celebration. This was filmed atop The  Grand Doubletree Hotel located at 1717 North Bayshore Drive next to the Miami Woman’s Club.

Special thanks to Bill Brothers for his excellent, on location re-creation pictures. He was kind enough to send them to me so I could share them here. Thanks Bill. They are the four pictures in the column below right.

As seen in The Savage.

The locker scene was likely filmed at the studio.

Then we go to Watson Island where the St. Vitus Dance is docked. Well at least for this first establishing shot we are at Watson Island because this is re-used footage.
