Just saw "Call Northside 777" last nite on TV. It's a film noir with Jimmy Stewart. Very Chicago.

Cleveland: Antwon Fisher, Major League, Welcome To Collinwood,

Movies like Happy Gilmore, the latest Spiderman, and Christmas Story were filmed here among others.

I know many, many other films but I am drawing a blank.

I grew up in the area of Cleveland where that was actually filmed. Driven by the house many times, ate at the restaurant in Asiatown many times, LOL

Chicago-The Untouchables and A League Of Their Own. I honestly think that other than a few movies, most of the best movies related to Chicagoland aren't filmed in the city mainly but rather in the suburbs. Ex. Home Alone I and II, John Hughes movies, Wayne's World I and II...etc...

Short Circuit is mostly in Astoria, Oregon I believe. I don't know if the town is ever mentioned, but they do make it clear they are in "O-re-gon." (Trying to give the effect of how Johnny 5 says it)
