I spend what some might consider an inordinate amount of time here trying to track down the precise locations of various photos of rocker-types loitering around the city, but every now and then, I deviate from this and pick from the world of film (as I’m currently obsessed with this single frame, but enough about that already). In any case, two of my favorite fellow bloggers have recently published posts that are well worth your time and perusal if you are similarly fascinated by this stuff.
My regular co-conspirator Bob Egan of PopSpots has a sprawling new post on his site that pinpoints the precise locations of several iconic films – from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” to “Death Wish” and all points in between (including a Flaming Pablum favorite, “The Warriors”…see ablove). True to his signature aesthetic, the esoteric minutia is rich and plentiful. Check it out here.
On a similar tip, the equally scrupulous Scouting New York has posted another installment in a series of posts that go into slavish detail about key New York films. This time he’s concentrating on Billy Wilder’s “The Apartment.”
Enjoy! Tell’em I sent’cha.
