Hello LA readers!
Today we're doing something a little different and looking at some of the most iconic films in history where the city of Los Angeles plays a major role. If you go through the history of cinema, you'll find this is no small task. LA is where most movies are conceived of, greenlit and financed, so it's no surprise that there's a plethora of stories that use the sprawling metropolis as a backdrop.
From film noir to high-stakes action to movie musicals, there's a good chance that some of your favorite classics take place in the City of Angels. I struggled to keep this to only 10 films, so feel free to reply to this email and let me know why I'm an idiot for leaving "Die Hard"/"Blade Runner"/"The Big Sleep"/several Robert Altman movies off the list. You'll definitely have a point. -Jonathan
