    I recently watched “college” and noticed the high school in the beginning on the film. It looked VERY familiar to Chino High School’s old campus in california that had been demolished in the 50s. I am a recent chino high graduate and did a mural of that building. so with all that said, would you happen to know what high school or building that is used in the film? if your interested in seeing pictures of the old chino high building, send me an email and i will show you so you can see for yourself.


  2. Hi Adam
    Thanks for your note. That formal style of high school architecture was fairly common at the time. As I show in my book, Buster used Glendale’s Union High School for the exterior scenes from the movie.
