PIRATES IN REDONDO BEACH
Redondo Beach was up for grabs last week when Pirates of the Caribbean lowered their anchor there to film scenes for Pirates III. Actually the location boat was out in the ocean but the beach town was loaded with equipment trucks, huge trailers, and looky-loos. Everybody wanted a glimpse of Johnny Depp. And they got one. Each night after filming wrapped, Johnny showed up in the parking lot of Captain Kidd’s fish restaurant where he posed for endless pictures with children and signed autographs. A restaurant employee was amazed “He was SO nice to everyone and spent hours with his fans.” No sign of Orlando Bloom.
