I love how, in The Road, Braddock PA was used for some shots because it already looks post-apocalyptic.
I just watched Spy Game last night, and was annoyed to discover my home town disguised as East-Berlin.My hometown is Budapest.
I hate it when I discover it masquaraded as something else in movies.
Like when it was Buenos Aires in Evita. Or when they made it Berlin in Atomic Blonde. Or Beijing in The Martian. Or Moscow in Red Heat. And the list goes on...
But I love it, when Budapest is Budapest in the movies.
Like in Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy.
Or in Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol.
Or in Gloomy Sunday – A Song of Love and Death.
Or in An American Rhapsody.
Well to begin with, THERE WERE NO HIP-HOP SCENES IN THE MOVIE!Mary Pickford made Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm in a town where I misspent part of my youth… I guess we’ll have to ask @Toto'sDad about the movie
Back then we only had Horse-Hop and we were happy to have that!Well to begin with, THERE WERE NO HIP-HOP SCENES IN THE MOVIE!
Rob Roy is a great movie.I've just found out this week that this movie, the 1959 version of
"The 39 Steps" was filmed in various locations within a 5 mile radius of where I now live.
The tea room in the film is still exactly the same and somewhere I go regularly for a cuppa.
In the book/film most of the Scottish scenes are set in the border lands between Scotland and England, 150miles south of here.

Ironically this film is actually set in my immediate neighbourhood.

The field next to my house was a regular place where Rob Roy grazed his cattle en route to market 8 miles away.
His patron the Duke of Montrose owned my house and rented it out to tenant farmers until it was sold in the early 1920s.
Not one scene in the film was shot within 150 miles of here.
