Frenzy (1972)

dir. Alfred Hitchcock

A politician's speech is interrupted by the discovery of a woman's body in the Thames - London County Hall, Belvedere Road, London SE

The pub where Dick Blaney (Jon Finch) and Babs (Anna Massey) work - The Globe, 37 Bow Street, London WC2

The pub where Dick Blaney overhears people discussing the necktie murders - The Nell of Old Drury, 29 Catherine Street, London WC2

View of Covent Garden - Henrietta Street, London WC2

Brenda Blaney's matchmaking agency was located in Dryden Chambers. That passage no longer exists but the archway and iron latticework at 119 Oxford Street, London W1 still marks the old entrance.

Brenda Blaney's home - 31 Ennismore Garden Mews, London SW7

Dick Blaney is waiting for Babs - Leicester Square, London WC2

The Coburg Hotel - Hilton Hyde Park, 129 Bayswater Road, London W2

Blaney swears to Babs that he's not a murderer - Hyde Park, just opposite London Hilton on Park Lane

Blaney goes to see his army pal - London Hilton, 22 Park Lane, London W1

New Scotland Yard, 8-10 Broadway, London SW1

Bob Rusk's (Barry Foster) flat - 3 Henrietta Street, London WC2

The truck stop where Bob Rusk gets out of the potato truck was Wally's New Café. It was once located on North Western Avenue, Watford, Hertfordshire WD25, off A41 near Hartspring Lane. It was later replaced by a modern superstore.

The prison where Blaney is taken - HMP Wormwood Scrubs, Du Cane Road, London W12

Blaney is transported to a hospital - St. Mary Abbott Hospital, Marloes Road, London W8. The hospital closed in 1992, and most of its buildings were demolished, but much of the original main building (seen in the background of the screenshot) survives. The site was redeveloped into a luxury housing complex called Stone Hall Gardens. It's a gated community and the access is limited to its residents.
