Yet Even More from The Rookies

A great chase sequence with the Hello, Dolly! street also appeared in Season 1, Episode 4 of The Rookies. The bad guy was being chased around the back lot of a movie studio and ended up running along the elevated train track. You can tell in the top photo that the background buildings were simply painted on a flat plane to look real. There's a French word for this painting technique (can't think of it, but if I do, I'll let you know).


  1. Trompe-l'oeil effect

  2. Thanks. I knew there was a French word for it. Just don't ask me to pronounce it!
