Fun quiz. A good addition would be Fight Club: Wilmington. Even though the city is never named in the course of the movie you can pick it up from clues.

Two problems. 1. Every other clue has two films, and I cannot think of a single alternative film set in Wilmington. 2. Not only is the city never named in the film, it's not identified in the screenplay or novel, and none of the filming was done there. Listen to the director's commentary sometime, and he'll tell you that some of the buildings that (SPOILER ALERT) get blown up at the end of the movie are based on Wilmington, but that they had to substantially embellish, because Wilmington's downtown is so tiny with no big skyscrapers.

No he doesn't. He said that the city is definitely and obviously supposed to be Wilmington, as this is the headquarters of most credit card companies in the United States, but that they didn't want to get sued. So actually every single building being blown up at the end of the movie is a real life building that is owned by 20th Century Fox (the company that produced the film). They just composited them into a single skyline.

Considering the % of popular movies that are produced in the United States I'd say that managing to make 8/20 of these cities outside the US is pretty impressive.

"Win just one for the Gipper." In Rudy, there is one shot where a long-haired student can be seen running across campus in the background. He is my SIL's brother. He woke up late for class that day and started hoofing it across campus, not realizing he was running right through the filming. The director yelled and asked if he would come back and do it again, as it made a nice background shot. He complied and was captured on film for posterity. The moral of the story is, if you want to get into the movies, oversleep and be late for class.

South Bend: a town in the far centre north of Indiana. I don't think that I'd ever heard of it either.

Actually maybe I have... I seem to remember doing a big quiz on American cities in some way just before and seemed to remember that it was in the north of the state. To be honest I had to check the Indiana bit though.

Call me dense but I never realized that Driving Mrs Daisy was set in Atlanta. I always assumed it was one of the many random smaller towns in northern Mississippi/Alabama that ended up with a sizable Jewish population. Before you laugh there are a lot more than you realize. All contextual clues in the movie pointed to it being a small town.

High Noon was filmed at my local church. Little House on the Prairie was filmed at my dad's best friend's house. Back to the Future was filmed locally... Basically most authentic western themed movies and tv shows were.
