Largely because Roman Polanski could not set foot in the United States, filming took place in Germany made to look like Massachusetts.
Some part of the movie was filmed on the German island of Sylt as a stand in for Martha's Vineyard. To look more American it was dressed up with an attention to details: American style cars, US signage, added telephone poles (phone and energy lines run mostly underground in Germany), wooden houses, American extras, etc.
Lang's beach house set was built entirely in a studio. The Cape Cod views through the windows were the result of green screens. [thanks to jfloyd]Can you help? Do you know any of the S. California (or any other) filming locations used for Ghost Writer? [Please send them in]Locations Links
