This original matte painting (believed to be by Albert Whitlock, right, top) is on display at Universal Studios, Hollywood. It's featured in the climactic sequence where the gas station catches fire. The black section shows where the location-filmed footage will appear. On the right is a still from the movie showing how the live action and fire effects footage blends with the matte painting.

You also got to work with the legendary matte painter Albert Whitlock, who did so much innovative work with Hitchcock and on films like Earthquake and The Hindenburg.

Cundey: Whitlock had been on staff at Universal and had his own shop there, and I would go over to his studio and talk to his cameraman, Bill Taylor [ASC].
...
Whitlock was another old-school guy who knew how to take a painting that had no real life and make it look real with little touches here and there - shadows, clouds that appeared to be moving, things like that.
