Did you ever want to go to a country or a city because one of your favorite movies was set there? That’s happened to me quite a lot and I actually have a list.
Over the years, I’ve been to a few places on that list, like the French Riviera/Monaco, which I had wanted to go to because of To Catch a Thief (1955). And it’s as beautiful in real life as it is on the screen. I’ve also been to Venice, which was the setting for Summertime (1955). Venice is quite possibly my favorite city in the world, apart from London. It is just ridiculously gorgeous. There’s something about it that sets it apart completely from every other city in the world. When you’re there, it almost feels like you’ve gone back in time. I can’t wait to go there again.
Vienna, Austria is one of the places I want to go, because of The Third Man (1949) and the Ultravox song. Also Hartford, Connecticut, which is the birthplace of Katharine Hepburn. Oh and Miami, FL, but that’s mostly because of The Golden Girls.
