Film + Travel: North America, South America Museyon Guides, $15.95 It's always fun to see how your city appears on the big screen. In this entertaining guide, eight writers offer their cinematic take of movie locations: San Francisco, New York, the South, Mexico City, Puerto Rico, Canada, Argentina and Chile. Some of the sites are iconic (scenes from Steve McQueen's Bullitt, for example) while others are not as well known. Director Julie Taymor shot inside Frida Kahlo's house for her bio-pic Frida; in Mexico City. And then there's that ultimate chameleon of a country, Canada, which often on film pretends to be something that it is not: Alberta filled in for Wyoming in Brokeback Mountain; Winnipeg as 1950s-era New York in Capote; and Toronto for Chicago in Chicago. A fun guide for cinemaphiles. ~ June Sawyers, 7/19/09 --The Chicago Tribune
