Movies, and TV in Atlanta

Recommended Posts


Driving Miss Daisy was one, I think it was shot out in Decatur. There have been tons of music videos shot here in Atlanta. There was a investigator movie shot in downtown Atlanta using the Marriott Marquis, but I can't remember the name!

Correct me of I'm wrong, but wasn't "Gone With the Wind" in Atlanta?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Yep, but it was only set there. It was filmed in Hollywood.

Trivia I learned from a stuntman who knew one of Gone With the Wind's stuntmen:

--When Rhett is carrying Scarlett through the burning of Atlanta, Scarlett is actually played by a male stuntman in that scene!

--The cost of creating an Atlanta set to burn was too expense, so they just set the New York set from King Kong on fire and had Rhett carry Scarlett through that.
