After watching Double Indemnity, I was inspired to find that amazing Dietrichson house where Barbara Stanwyck’s character, Phyllis, lives. In the film it’s described as being in Los Feliz. When I found the address, it was actually less than a mile away from me in Hollywood.

The house, located at 6301 Quebec Drive, looks exactly the way it does in the movie. It’s a lovely walk through the Hollywood Hills above Franklin Avenue, and I definitely recommend walking…the streets are winding and parking non-existent. And the view is much nicer on foot!
As it turns out, there really is honeysuckle growing in the neighborhood!
