The Rockford Files - EPISODE: White on White and Nearly Perfect (1978)

I thought I would never find the location of this strip joint used in the 1978 filming of the Rockford Files... but with some luck I actually located the building where this strip joint actually was once located on Sunset Blvd. 

ABOVE & BELOW PHOTOS: Jim Rockford pulls into the parking lot of "Blackwell's  Disco & Strip Joint". In the below photo the small yellow sign can be seen belonging to this strip joint. BLAZE & AMBER Stripping Nightly. WOW, strippers names really have NOT changed much in 40 years!

BELOW 7 PHOTOS: Lance White (Tom Selleck) and Jim Rockford (James Garner) drive down Sunset Blvd in 1978 - In the background you can see different local businesses such as "Travelodge", "Motor Lodge" , Schonlaw Chevrolet on Sunset Blvd and more 

UPDATE: From a viewer - The "motor hotel" in the pictures is the Saharan Motor Hotel at 7212 Sunset Blvd
