Los Angeles is as much of a star as the celebrities that call the City of Angels home; over the years it's stood in for Japan, Hawaii, Manhattan, New England, Casablanca — even a planet of apes. Sometimes Los Angeles even gets to portray...Los Angeles! From classic films to the latest blockbusters, L.A. has provided generations of directors an amazing variety of movie locations.
