The movie studio in # 10.26 (DVD count) / 9.26 (original count) is Lorimar Studios (formerly MGM; nowadays Sony Pictures Studios) at 10202 West Washington Boulevard, Culver City, CA 90230.

I am not entirely sure about the street in the scene, but think it's 5th Street east of sound stages 24 and 23.

In # 9.31 (DVD count) / 8.31 (original count), the street J.R. drives along with Angelica in the passenger's seat is Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. The street sign for the cross street visible just under Steve Forrest's opening credit is the 300 North block of McCadden Place. They are driving around various streets in Hancock Park until Angelica hops out and J.R. drives off.
I haven't ID'd the exact streets in the remaining segments, but the street lights and the overall look gives away that it's Hancock Park. Although I have no proof yet, I assume these scenes were probably filmed the same day as Pam & Mark's wedding, which was shot on the grounds of a heavily filmed Hancock Park mansion at 365 South Hudson Avenue.

Hope this helps, @TJP!

In the season nine finale Angelica takes J.R. for a ride at gunpoint. When Angelica is finished talking, he drops her off where a car is waiting for her.

This home is located at 123 S Hudson in Los Angeles.

J.R. is then seen pulling away down S. Hudson towards W. 2nd Street.

The home at the end of the street (5180 W 2nd) as it looks today.

This activity is shown by the red marker in the upper section of the map below. Also marked is 365 S Hudson. You’ll remember this from a few posts ago as the location where Pam and Mark marry in the same episode!

In # 11.14 (DVD count) / 10.14 (original count), the establishing shot of Dr. Styles' mansion is stock footage that originated on "Flamingo Road" where the same residence was Michael Tyrone's (David Selby) house. Arden Villa (a.k.a. the Morton House at the time) at 1145 Arden Road, Pasadena, CA 91106 has been an extremely popular filming location for decades and is probably also remembered as the Riebmann home in Buenos Aires / Argentina in season 4 of "Falcon Crest" and (later repainted yellow) as Michael Sharpe's house in season 9 (# 212) of "Falcon Crest". It stood in for the Carrington Mansion on "Dynasty" a couple of times, particularly the southern exteriors with the lily pond.

The interiors of Dr. Styles' mansion were shot elsewhere.

In # 11.16 (DVD count) / 10.16 (original count), the scene with Sue Ellen, Kimberly and the others is filmed at Westlake Lake and The Landing again (see my previous post # 968). In this screen capture, the northern side of Boccaccio's is in the background:

Dallas-DE11.16-35.17.JPG


Note that The Landing has been remodeled since filming. Some parts have been annexed so Boccaccio's patio is significantly smaller nowadays.

In # 11.20 (DVD count) / 10.20 (original count), the establishing shot plus the later exterior scene of Clayton's new office is what is nowadays known as the office tower of Comerica Bank at 15303 Ventura Boulevard, Sherman Oaks, CA 91403.

The building used to be the headquarters of the Telepictures company. When Lorimar merged with Telepictures in 1986, they kept some of the offices in that building to serve as the International TV Distribution offices of Lorimar-Telepictures.

Did anyone notice that the same court reporter / stenographer appears in many of the court scenes? Not only on "Dallas", but also on "Falcon Crest". Does anyone happen to know this extra's name? The only thing we have been able to find out about her is that she was a real court reporter at the time and had to bring her own steno machine for the scenes when she was hired as an atmosphere person.

In # 11.22 (DVD count) / # 10.22 (original count), the exteriors of April's hotel are portrayed by what is now the Hilton Los Angeles / Universal City. The establishing clip is older stock footage though, as you can see from the sign under the port cochère, which still says "Sheraton Premiere" (the previous name); by the time of filming this episode, it was known as the Registry Hotel:

Does anyone have any idea where the exterior shots for John Ross' boarding school, Ballard School for Boys, were filmed towards the end of season 11 (DVD) / 10 (original)?

While the establishing shots of Sue Ellen's movie studio are usually from The Studios at Los Colinas in Texas, the actual scenes on the studio lot and on the sound stages are from Lorimar Studios (formerly MGM, nowadays Sony )in Culver City, of course.

In # 12.13 (DVD count) / 11.13 (original count), the executive offices where Sue Ellen comes out is the Crawford Building on the lot:
Dallas-DE11.13-19.14.JPG


Shortly after, the camera is facing in southwestern direction on the studio lot's A Street:

In # 12.14 (DVD count) / 11.14 (original count), the scene with April and J.R. is obviously from Century City, CA as you can see the distinct triangular twin highrises in the background:

In # 12.18 (DVD count) / 11.18 (original count), the circular driveway where J.R. meets Bruce Harvey and Don Lockwood is actually the entrance to what used to be the MGM Plaza Building in those days. Located across the Madison Gate to Lorimar Studios (formerly MGM), its physical address is 10000 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232.

When Lorimar bought the studio lot from MGM in 1987, MGM moved its headquarters to this building across the street, which was originally called the Filmland Building. The building was finally renamed Sony Pictures Plaza in 1992, but Sony sold it off a few years ago. After slight remodeling, particularly of the color scheme of its outer shell, the building is now knows as One Culver.

The interiors of the casting agency for Sue Ellen's movie in Hollywood are inside the MGM Plaza Building, now One Culver (see my previous post # 979). In the following scene, you can even see the red / white "Lorimar Studios" sign across the street (visible above Sue Ellen's head), which was installed on the top of sound stage 5. The view through this office window is in southwestern direction:
Dallas-DE11.21-05.21.JPG


The restaurant where Afton performs in this a restaurant Lorimar loved to film at. I don’t remember the name, but it was located at 1000 Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA 90401. I think it was called Santa Monica Seafood at a later time, but the whole building and its interiors were totally remodeled in the 1990’s:

The Munich Airport in what used to be West Germany (now Germany) is the then-real Airport called "Flughafen München" or, more precisely "Flughafen München-Riem" (both exteriors and interiors). München-Riem Airport was closed in 1992 and replaced by a bigger airport outside the city of Munich:
