Hi, regarding your Pulp Fiction mistake referring to Echo Park as a suburb of L.A. It's a constant whenever a national writer for Vanity Fair, NY Times or one of many NY-based publications — they make these kind of mistakes and it drives me crazy. Invariably, its the Valley that leaves them baffled: `In this leafy enclave of Woodland Hills, a city with the look and feel of Middle America yet just a stones throw from the movie capital of the world...' etc. etc.
I used to work in South L.A. for a weekly newspaper at 54th and Crenshaw, right near LA DERA Heights. In Reservoir Dogs there's a scene where the gangsters are driving in a car and Chris Penn refers to La DORA Heights. Always bugged me.
