The Pacific All Risk Insurance Co in the Wilder masterpiece Double Indemnity (1944) where Fred MacMurray and Edward G Robinson work is set in a downtown Los Angeles office building that is set to look like the Bradbury Building.  However, in the scene in The Artist (2011) where George Valentin-on the way down – bumps into Peppy Miller-on the way up  and on TCM 11/6/16 -D.O.A. (1950)  where the great Edmund O’Brien is literally  a NOIR dead man walking to avenge his killer was actually filmed in The Bradbury Building.
