"Iron Man" director and Queens native Jon Favreau included his love of 40's era kitsch in Swingers, and now Favreau once again sends a love letter (a hyperactive, blow-shit-up love letter) to Los Angeles in his latest movie. Disney Hall plays a prominent role in one scene, and the now-sold Santa Monica Ferris Wheel makes a cameo in another. Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.'s character) home exterior is in Point Dume overlooking the Pacific. Interiors were shot on a sound stage, but did anyone notice more than a passing resemblance to Lautner's Elrod House in Palm Springs?
