Movieland Mystery Photo [Updated]

[Update: This is the filming of “Poltergeist II.” Please congratulate Hockey Kevin for identifying the film. The crew is shooting at Celtic Street and Variel Avenue in Chatsworth, jewel of the northwest Valley. My first years at The Times were spent at the Valley Edition, headquartered on Prairie across the street from the Winnetka-6 Drive-in (RIP).



We have three mystery photos today, all from the same production. These folks are busy making a dust storm!


Here’s our mystery camera, mystery sound boom and mystery guy standing around.

All we are is dust in the wind!

I think Larry is having a blast (like shown in the photos) torturing us deluded folks out here and I think the hepcat at the left in one of the photos looks like William Katt.

Could this be from Poltergeist?

"Big wind blew in from Winnetka. Big noise blew right out again." Taking the song a bit literally...
