Many movies are synonymous with the locations where they were filmed. This is a lighthearted, round-the-world tour of famous movies so you, too, can go "on location." Exact addresses, review-style essays and city maps take you there, whether on a Harry Potter tour of London, a Breakfast at Tiffany's trip to New York, or a jaunt to the Rome nightclub where Matt Damon and Jude Law partied in The Talented Mr. Ripley. This richly illustrated volume presents 18 cities and their world-famous films.--From publisher description.
