Joel, 61, chimes in with, “And then we discovered, ‘Oh, this is hard. Why are we doing this?’ ”. The pair rewatched Bible epics such as “Quo Vadis,” “The Robe” and “Ben-Hur” for ideas on the sword-and-sandals sequences. “That’s a hard slog. How many times can you sit through ‘The Robe’?” jokes Joel. “Hail, Caesar!” was shot at studios and on locations around Los Angeles. Hobie’s cowboy movie was filmed at Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park, where countless Westerns have been shot. The Bible epic was staged at the Bronson Caves in Griffith Park. A nightclub sequence was done at the Hollywood Palladium. For the water ballet sequence, the water tank on the Sony lot, where Esther Williams’ films were shot when the lot was MGM’s, was used.

Take stock. As you categorize, separate out items to donate and toss. Be ruthless.Clean. Garages get filthy. While it’s empty, sweep, wipe, dust. Plan. Now that you can size up what you want to keep, think through and sketch out a storage plan. Give everything a home, starting with your car or cars. Consider frequency of access. For instance, holiday decorations can go in overhead space, while garbage bins should be close to the door. Outfit. For very little cost, you can get systems that make garage storage practical, accessible, and neat. Because you want to maximize floor space for parking, think up, up and away. Pegboard, hanging rails, magnetic strips, shelves that attach to either walls or ceiling joists, cabinets and plastic bins (avoid cardboard) can help you make the most of every inch of wall and ceiling. Last week, my handyman installed pegboard ($25) on one garage wall. I spent another $18 on a variety of pegboard hook systems on which I hung everything from long-handled garden tools and pruning shears to saws, brooms, and bungie cords. On another wall, he mounted a track to hang our bikes ($40). And on the back wall, we put metal shelves ($40), where we store ice chests, outdoor seat cushions, the picnic basket, and cleaning supplies. When everything was off the ground and on the wall, I did a little happy dance.
