- There was a bit of controversy when it came to the scene of Rabbit and his mates torching the house in which a girl had supposedly been raped. Fearing for the city’s image, permission was initially refused, but an agreement was finally reached and 122 Beresford Street, in Highland Park, was duly burned. By the way, the site is just a few blocks away from Walt Kowalski’s house in Gran Torino.
