Filmography Christopher Moloney

Journalist Christopher Moloney had an epiphany while walking through Central Park one day, “Every day I walked past tons of locations from popular—and not-so-popular—movies,” he explains. He decided to start printing out stills from the films and comparing them to their real-life counterparts. “Since then, I’ve re-created more than 250 scenes around the city.” His work—which includes movies as varied as Midnight Run, The French Connection, and Shaft—can be found at his Web site, FILMography.

The car crash during the famous chase sequence in William Friedkin’s The French Connection was unplanned but included in the final cut of the film because of its realism. The man whose car was hit (the white one) had just left his house a few blocks from the intersection to go to work and was unaware that a car chase was being filmed. The producers later paid the bill for the repairs to his car (x).
