L.A. Noire film reels and landmarks guide

50 film noir classics and 30 old-Hollywood sights are yours for the taking. Here's where to find them

Landmarks %26ndash; Hollywood

25. The Brown Derby

Disappointingly, this isn't the original, hat-shaped Brown Derby, but so long as the iconic restaurant is in here somewhere, we're happy. It's the easternmost landmark in Hollywood, and you can find it just south of Hollywood and Vine, on the eastern side of the street.

26. Crossroads of the World

From the Brown Derby, head south on Vine and make a right onto Sunset. You'll find this open-air mall just after Seward Street, but if you hit Las Palmas you've gone too far.

27. Musso %26amp; Franks

Musso & Franks is still a Hollywood institution, and it can be found by taking Las Palmas north from the Crossroads of the World, and then making a right onto Hollywood Boulevard.

28. Max Factor Building

From Musso & Franks, follow Hollywood Boulevard west, then turn left on Highland. It'll beon your left.

29. Grauman's Theater

To find the world-famous Grauman's Chinese Theater (which is disappointingly lacking in celebrity handprints), just follow Hollywood Boulevard west. It's right between Orchid and Orange.

30. Hotel Roosevelt

Directly southwest of Grauman's Theater, you can unlock the Roosevelt by following Orange Drive just south of Hollywood Boulevard.

With that, you should have all 30 landmarks, and the Star Map Achievement/Trophy. Enjoy the slight bump in Gamerscore/Level, and check back soon for videos and for more L.A. Noire guides.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
