Each week, you’ve been sending in your favorite New York City films, and it’s no surprise that you often have a soft spot for those that make the most of a certain location. We’ve already covered many of the movies readers love, but there are still plenty left to share.
Frank Hughes points out that “Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins” “is full of great scenes filmed all over New York, including at the Statue of Liberty during the refurbishing for its centennial.” Robert Braisted mentions the Jennifer Jones fantasy “Portrait of Jennie,” “a film with beautiful shots of Central Park, including actual sheep in the Sheep Meadow!” And Perley Thibodeau loves Fred Astaire’s dance number set “atop the Washington Square Arch in ‘The Belle of New York.'”
The darkly comic “Romeo Is Bleeding” is a favorite of Gabriel Gonzalez’s, thanks to “the way it depicts Coney Island, one of New York City’s most undervalued neighborhoods.” Andrew Sparberg is partial to the Jane Fonda/Rod Taylor romance “Sunday in New York,” “a dated but cutesy comedy with great New York backgrounds, including a memorable scene on a Fifth Ave. bus.” The 1952 dialogue-free spy drama “The Thief” inspired architect Jerry Fritz, in part because of the climax at the Empire State Building. “I think this film is one of the things that got me interested in architecture,” he shares.
Marianna Zonenberg adores “Big’s” FAO Schwarz piano duet, while Emily Intravia asks, “What better way to introduce kids to New York than with ‘The Muppets Take Manhattan’? You get bus station lockers, rats in Sardi’s and a mugging in Central Park!”
Finally, Patricia Contino proposes “Superman,” because “there are so many New York moments in the film. The Daily News building standing in for the Daily Planet, Lex Luthor’s underground Grand Central lair and, most of all, Lois and Superman flying by the shining Twin Towers. Who knew that one day, watching that sequence would be so sad and wonderful at the same time?”
