And they all changed their names to what we know them as, as actors.

Yes, they all had extensive location shooting in my state of Connecticut. "It Happened To Jane" with Doris Day and Jack Lemmon was set in Maine, but they needed a railroad for Doris to get her lobsters to market, so they used the Essex Steam Railroad, which is a tourist attraction in the south central portion of the state. Max Showalter (aka Casey Adams) liked the area so much that he bought property there and made it his home. "The Man In The Net" was filmed in the northeast corner of the state, in and around Woodstock. It was in black and white. The house that was Alan Ladd's in the movie is actually a victorian mansion in Woodstock called Roseland that is open to the public in the summer. It is always painted a deep shade of pink and has extensive rose gardens. "Parrish" starred Claudette Colbert and Troy Donahue and it was filmed in the tobacco growing area around Windsor, which is just north and east of Hartford. Almost all of those fields are gone now, with business parks occupying many of them. "Everybody Wins" with Nick Nolte and Debra Winger is a private eye story filmed around the city of Norwich, in the southeast part of the state. Good job, Musicalnovelty. Now it's your turn.

Okay, some clues...

It's nothing to do with the actors in the films.

Nothing to do with the years they were made or released.

Nothing to do with the studios that made the films.

Nothing to do with the music, photography, editing of the films, or whether they're comedies, dramas, in color or not, in wide screen or not.
