Day 338 - Julia Child's House

Day 338.

So we know Julia Child lived in a house. That is an indisputable fact. You know, because all of the Julia Child scenes that took place in her house, Julia Child's house. But do we know what that house looked like? Okay, I guess we know that too.


BUT, what about her actual house? I assume they didn't shoot the movie at her actual house because, well, no movie does that. For logistical purposes. It's probably expensive to shoot at real dead celebrity chefs' houses anyways. But like I was saying, what did Julia Child's real house look like? This calls for some investigatory journalism.


So we know that her house was in Cambridge, MA. So that boils it down to... oh... only 44,032 houses. But wait!


We know her address, thanks to Alfred A Knopf, Inc.! But how do we find out what her house actually looks like? To Google Maps Streetview!


Well that looks nothing like the house they used in Julie & Julia! Where are the black shutters? Where is the mail truck? Where is the black mailman? What a sham! Man, that really makes me angry. You know, when something based on a real thing in a movie isn't EXACTLY LIKE THE REAL THING.


Okay, so that's pretty close, I guess. You know, I guess she did have black shutters back in the day. Still though--IT AIN'T THE SAME.
