Summary

Summary

For all those fans who wonder where their favorite movies were filmed or what it would be like to visit the sites, this book is the ultimate resource. It features information on blockbuster, cult, and art house favorites from Saturday Night Fever to Men in Black , from Belle du Jour to Ben Hur. The entries for individual films include brief descriptions of key scenes shot at the location, travel details, photographs, film stills, behind-the-scenes information, and insights as to what these places are really like. Also included are full-color features on major sites of special interest-- Vertigo 's San Francisco, Woody Allen's Manhattan, and a world Star Wars tour, among others--along with more obscure locations that have become sought-after travel destinations simply because of their connection to the movies.
