Another national landmark of course is Monument Valley, filmed in many a John Ford western like FORT APACHE

Petrified Forest NM and its neighbor Painted Desert NM show up in an early Gable film actually called THE PAINTED DESERT (1931)

Niagara Falls shows up a lot, but I always think of it in REMEMBER THE NIGHT

Buddy the Elf also visits the Empire State Building

And the GHOSTBUSTERS (in #2) have to animate The Statue of Liberty

BORN YESTERDAY (1950)

JEFFERSON MEMORIAL, LIBRARY OF CONGRESS, STATLER HOTEL, NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART, U.S. CAPITOL, and THE WATERGATE STEPS where Judy Holliday and William Holden attend an outdoor summer concert of the National Symphony Orchestra, a concert which was then-regular.

Enough about the East Coast! Here's some hometown love:

James Dean at Griffith Observatory in REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (also shows up memorably in LA LA LAND)

And, of course, the wonderful noir (filmed in color) Niagara starring Marilyn Monroe and Joseph Cotten.

Timely category, at least for me: I'm taking the TCM: Mad About Musicals course and I asked on the discussion boards if there were many musicals from other countries. I know of none, so I can't contribute a single film title, but I am looking forward to others' contributions.

" The Red Shoes " starring Moira Shearer

And the great Jessie Matthews with Sonnie Hale-- "Evergreen" by Rodgers & Hart being one of their best

Die Dreigroschenoper and My Fair Lady are both set in Britain. They're technically "British musicals."

Very recent example is LES MISERABLES -- of course it's a European stage musical already, but the film was made by a British company and a British director, Tom Hooper, which explains all the British & Aussie leads :)

(I'm totally in love with their British Gavroche) :)

Oh, yeah, Evelyn Keyes in The Killer That Stalked New York is fantastic noir. Here are two more noirs: Panic in the Streets (1950; bubonic plague) and City of Fear (1959; radiation poisoning).

Those three films would make a great triple feature on TCM one evening.

And if those three aren't enough doom, gloom, and disaster, there's 80,000 Suspects (1963), I think a British film about smallpox in Bath, England. I haven't seen it, but the descriptions I have read about it fit the classicategory.
