Part of the movie “All The President’s Men” was filmed in Chevy Chase.
In 1975, two scenes from the movie “All The President’s Men”, were filmed at 7009 East Avenue in the Town of Chevy Chase.
“All The President’s Men” premiered in 1976 and depicted the duo of Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) and their uncovering of the connection between the 1972 burglary of the Democratic Party Headquarters in the Watergate Complex in Washington, DC, and a White House Staffer.
Actors Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford, and Jane Alexander filmed two scenes for the movie at the home at 7009 East Avenue. Sound trucks and other equipment trucks stretched from East Avenue to Bradley Boulevard for eight days during 1975.
It is even said that between takes, Dustin Hoffman would play touch football with the neighborhood children.
