Hi,

I am looking for your recommendations of 70's movies set in 70's New York.

I have seen an enjoyed Annie Hall, Manhattan, French Connection, Saturday Night Fever etc,.

Anything that captures the mood and feel of the 1970's New York interests me so if you have any titles to put into the hat I thank you in advance.

Rob.

A list of New York-based movies of the 70's would have to include almost any Woody Allen movie (except Love And Death) and a lot of Neil Simon plays/movies.

But also include...

Taxi Driver
The Seven Ups
Where's Poppa?
Across 110th Street
Kramer Vs. Kramer
Shaft
Death Wish
Bang The Drum Slowly
Klute
Marathon Man
An Unmarried Woman
The Sunshine Boys
The Out Of Towners
(the original 1970 version)
The Panic In Needle Park
Joe
Plaza Suite
Network
King Kong
Mean Streets
Love At First Bite
The Landlord
(a truly underrated film!)
All That Jazz
Three Days Of The Condor
Superman
The Taking of Pelham One Two Three


I was going to include New York, New York and the Godfathers, #1 and #2, but they take place in the 1940's.

Hope this helps! [Smile]

And many classic Sesame Street clips also evoke the feel of 70s New York as well.
