Review

Places You ve Seen at the Movies From the banjo and guitar face-off near the Chattooga River, where Deliverance was filmed, to Marilyn Monroe s billowing dress over a subway grate at Lexington Avenue and 52nd Street in New York in The Seven Year Itch, movie scenes often evoke a strong sense of place. The creators of Museyon Guides Film + Travel, a new travel guide trilogy, have taken this idea and run with it, locating some of the most memorable scenes from the movies and organizing them into books focusing on North and South America (198 films, including Gone With the Wind and The Official Story from Argentina); Europe (199 films, including Lawrence of Arabia with its desert scenes done in Spain); and Asia, Oceania and Africa (139 films, including Mad Max and Lost in Translation ). Chapters are introduced by writers, producers, directors and historians and are full of color photography, history and trivia. Each book costs $15.95. In September, Museyon Music + Travel; ($17.95), a travel guide for those seeking out the best in global music, will hit the stores. ~ Hilary Howard, July 5, 2009 --The New York Times

Book Your Vacation Film + Travel: North America, South America; ($15.95, Museyon Guides) is part of the Museyon series subtitled A Curated Guide to Your Obsessions and that's exactly what this book does it leads the film fanatic on a tour of locales where famous and obscure movies have been shot. Longing to run the Chattooga River in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains from Deliverance? Want to swing by the Oak Bar in New York City's The Plaza Hotel where Cary Grant's character was abducted in North by Northwest? How about spending some time at Boone Hall Plantation outside of Charleston, S.C., where some scenes from The Notebook were done? Stills from the movies, as well as photos from the destinations, are included, along with additional information on the film or locale where available. The index lists the year and the country where the film was made and the DVD distributor. ~ Kyle Wagner, 06/21/2009 --The Denver Post

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

I was in a local NYC bookstore and saw this title. it is so cool. it's a guide to locations where movie scenes were actually filmed. i bought it right there on the spot and put it to use. it's always fun to travel your own city through a new set of eyes. It also covers San Francisco and a bunch of cities in the South (Savannah, New Orleans, etc). i highly recommend!
oh, and there are a ton of great color photos as well.

As a movie buff with dreams of traveling (but not the budget), I am LOVING this guide! Well written by a bunch of interesting authors, but still full of cool facts and trivia. And the pictures will put you right there. I just can't wait until I can actually visit some of these places ... although I got to say, the description of New York was spot-on and even full of stuff that surprised this New Yorker. Would love to give/get this as a gift.

I may have read the description wrong but I was expecting a book about movie sites covering more area. I have traveled and visited many sites just for fun but this book was very limited in the area it covered.
