L.A. Noire film reels and landmarks guide

Film reels – Hollywood


37. White Heat

In between Mariposa and Alexandria are a bunch of two story apartment buildings. You're looking for the big green-and-beige one just south of the center of a short, unmarked street.

Head around to the south side of the building, and you'll find a staircase going up. Take it.

At the end of the walkway above, you'll find the next reel.


38. The Narrow Margin

Just northwest of the intersection of two unnamed streets between Hobart and Ardmore, you'll find a red-roofed mansion behind a hedge wall. Here's what it looks like if you're heading south on the north-south unmarked street: 

Head into the mansion's driveway and continue to the area behind its garage.

There's a whole garden back there, and your destination is at its west end.

Head up to the fountain and you'll see the next reel waiting for you, plain as day.


39. Sunset Boulevard

In hiding Sunset Boulevard anywhere other than Sunset Boulevard, Team Bondi missed a small opportunity to look clever. But whatever. You'll find the next reel at a little shopping plaza on the north side of Melrose, near the western end of the street.

Look underneath the tree at the plaza's center, and the next reel is yours.


40. The Woman in the Window

This one's a little tricky, just because it involves finding your way through a row of idential dwellings. From Wilton, turn onto Lemongrove, and take a left between second and third houses to the south.

Behind the houses, you'll see a small common area, at the center of which is a picnic table.

Get close to the picnic table, and you'll find the next reel sitting on its edge.


41. The Spiral Staircase

Just east of Santa Monica and Wilton, you'll find Samuel's deli on the north side of the street. Your destination is the little park next door to it.

Once you're in there, look left toward the building, and you'll find the next reel sitting under a large tree.


42. The Night of the Hunter

At the eastern edge of Fountain Avenue is the Hillside Motel, and at its southeast corner, you'll find its front entrance. Go ahead and stroll on through.

Jog north past the parking lot, and you'll find a large common area with a swimming pool.

At the northern end of the pool, you'll find The Night of the Hunter.


For you.


43. Odd Man Out

A few blocks northwest of the Hillside, you'll find a tract of squat little houses. Your target is the sea-green one in the southern row, second from the street if you're coming from St. Andrews Place.

Yeah, this one right here. Head around to the other side of it.

On the back porch, you'll find your next reel.

    Had to register just to thank you for this guide, no way was I finding all of these in under 10hrs using the Social Club map. By far the best guide to finding the reels anywhere on internet. Thankyou!!

    Only created A account to make this comment about youre guide. Well done, really excellent job, I really liked it with the pictures made it rather very easy to find them quickly. Took me maybe a good 2Hours or something to collect them all. Only used the Film reels Guide though. Again well done.

    Am i the only one who thinks the ramshackle farmhouse looks a lot like John Marston's house?
  • thochaos - May 28, 2011 11:31 a.m.

    This was really helpful. I would never have found any of the reels without this guide and it made the last few landmarks extremely easy. Thanks!
  • zer0hvk - May 28, 2011 5:46 a.m.

  • leeloo - May 20, 2011 4:08 a.m.

    Thank you for an awesome guide. Managed to get all landmarks, still working on the film reels.
  • FVDub - May 19, 2011 6:49 p.m.

    It is absolutely incredible that you have made such an awesome guide so soon after the game has come out. THANK YOUR GR!
  • Darkrose2222 - May 19, 2011 6:43 p.m.

    Thanks for this I appreciate it. I am not sure if your aware of this You don't have to crash through gates to get certain items. He will easily hop over the fence even if there is a wire on top of it. I mean of course if you want to have fun you can do so. There are some easier ways to get some of the Items instead of what you are telling people they have to do. But I do love this site so Thanks again.
  • 435 - May 19, 2011 7:51 a.m.

    Many thanks, my friend.
  • elpurplemonkey - May 19, 2011 12:22 a.m.

    I saw that tweet also- you stayed in the office until 3am or so doing this right? That's insane, but thank you very much for it.
  • GamesRadarMikelReparaz - May 18, 2011 6:52 p.m.

    @WonsAuto: Hey, thanks for the support. You can go after this stuff after finishing the game - in fact, the best way to do it is by going into the "Cases" menu and picking Free Roam (which becomes available for each desk as you finish them, and is also great for going after any street-crime cases you didn't get to before).
  • WonsAuto - May 18, 2011 6:25 p.m.

    Another awesome open-world guide by Wikiparez. Can you collect this stuff after beating the main story, or does it have to be before? Also, I saw your Twitter feed early this morning, can't believe you stayed at the office so late to work on this. Your ridiculous work ethic shan't go unappreciated!
