Whittle Place


Whittle Place is a quaint, unassuming street consisting primarily of early 20th century townhouses and a long row of fig trees that canopy the street, from end to end.


Whittle was originally chosen as the film location of Werner Ricksberg's highly-anticipated 1983 romantic comedy "So you say there's a chance", starring Dan Trumble and Olga Sinclair. According to a leaked script, several pivotal scenes were to be filmed in Whittle Place, due to the beautiful, historic aesthetic and cute urban feel. However, on the final month of production, storm-damaged root systems caused several fig trees to tip over, destroying several of the cast's trailers and killing Ricksberg instantly. Trumble was maimed by the accident and needed one leg amputated, and Sinclair escaped injury.

The outpouring of grief over the loss of beloved romantic comedy director Ricksberg led to public outpouring by the film community. Famed action director Steven Crest filled in to direct the rest of production, and Trumble returned to act his final scenes thanks to a complex array of support wires and trick photography.

Ricksberg was posthumously awarded Best Director at the 1984 Hollywood Film Awards, as well as receiving a lifetime achievement award, presented by Olga Sinclair.
