A book I contributed to, Museyon Guides Film + Travel: North America was praised in The New York Times. My segment on the South, which included Deliverance and Gone With the Wind, was mentioned with praise.
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”).
A great project, it was truly fun to work on.
