    I’m going mad because I can’t work out where the first scenes were filmed at the beginning when they first meet whilst hitchhiking. Does anyone know? It looks like northern California because the scenery is similar to that in Dirty Mary Crazy Larry.

    Thanks for any help.

      I live in Ojai, Ca. and ride motorcycles on many backroads and I have been on that road. It has to be somewhere north of Ojai I can’t forget those rocks coming out of the ground. I hope when I am on that road again I will remember this movie. Kern or SLO county.

    It WAS California, but that’s as specific as I can be. There’s a podcast episode of The Projection Booth on iTunes dedicated to Scarecrow, provides some great info. Interviews with dir. Schatzberg and writer Garry Michael White.

    Regards P R B.
