Oh Kaz, these are new stories to me. You've been holding back, Sugar! lol

Sounds like fun. Larry's New York sister's ex-boyfriend was a driver for big bands all across the country and got us into some concerts for free. He sent free t-shirts to us once as well.But that was it. He was going to introduce us to Jethro Tull once but we couldn't wait outside the stage door any longer than we already had. Your connections were more fun, it sounds like to me.

Wow Patty, who woulda thunk there were enough things happening in Baltimore to have that many movies.;-)
Just being silly.
See this link for movies made in Tucson (not including Westerns with Old Tucson Studios as a Backdrop).

My hometown of Sheffield was the location for the Full Monty!

Mike, some of these movies were made in many different parts of Maryland, not just Baltimore, although many many were. But Maryland being a small state, none of them were shot too very far from where I live, so I included them all.

And believe me, Baltimore may not be NY but it's not a hick town either. Most people who visit here find it much different than expected. It's had a bad rap for years, but many settle here after they discover the good parts unknown to the masses. Also, I say "Baltimore", but mean the metropolitan area, the counties and so forth.

Yes, Arizona makes sense as lots of movie locations. it being closer to Hollywood than many parts of the USA, it stands to reason, financially and logistically, that is would be used. And of course, like you say, many Westerns are included. Our area is being promoted more and more and the directors and producers are biting like crazy. It's an untapped region with many options. Guess you know the TV series, "Homicide" was shot here too.

Patty--when I was in Baltimore, I thought the trash boats cleaning up the canals were a hoot. It was a lovely city, though--nice shops and stores, upscale hotels and restaurants, plenty of things to do for singles and families alike.

Mrs. Thing, for the Baltimore Tourism board. LOL

I'm in Illinois, actually. There's a small town here where they were filming. And my cousin got her pictures in Indiana.

Well, of course there's that film (Notting Hill) and many films, music videos and tv dramas are filmed around here.

WowWowWow, Patty! Why, exactly, do you think Maryland is so popular with movie location finders? Great that it is, of course, for one thing, it must bring money into the state & that's always welcome (I'm told my local Victorian gothic church in Harry Potter got hardly anything, shame)

Yes, I'm sure the local businesses and Md. govt. welcome the movie trade. Also, there are many historical, as well as modern cosmopolitan areas that can be great for scenes and backdrops. In addition, there are so many pockets of neighborhoods with various ethnic cultures and flavors that I'm sure the the state can be utilized greatly. The rural regions and eastern shore of the state are vastly different, in fact, each area, like EUropean countries, differ a great deal. As I have mentioned here over the years, we are considered "America in Miniature" because of the city, small towns, farms, the ocean, hundreds of water tributaries, lakes, the bay, and harbors, cosmopolitan life, various, ethnic heritages, the mountains, beaches, prominent and numerous educational institutions and world renown medical facilities, anything from small businesses to big businesses. We have pro sports and many collegiate sports and wonderful facilities for them. The U.S. Naval Academy is here and we are close to Washington, D.C. and have 3 major airports within an hours drive, one only 18 minutes from my house. The latest "Money" and "Forbes" magazines rated the county where I live as one of the top 10 best places to live in the country for a family and to raise kids. (I just read it in the newspaper two days ago.)

it's always fun how the big movie stars who have never been here until filming a movie praise this area. They are usually very surprised by the hospitality, the great ethnic food and seafood and diverseness of the area.
