Subject: This is for the new website, Only On Film

Written By: ChuckyG on 07/09/04 at 10:10 am

http://www.onlyonfilm.com

Incase you haven't seen it yet, I have a new website which deals strictly with places that no longer exist, but can still be seen in old movies and TV shows.  I think the most prominent of these is the World Trade Center, since it's such a prominent part of the 1970s-2000s New York skyline, and was one of the main reasons I wanted to create this site.

I welcome discussion of any place that no longer exists in this message forum (doesn't have to strictly be stuff that appears in film, that's what the website is for after all). 

I of course want everyone to check out the new website if they get a chance, and even help out by adding new information.  Since it's a new website, I'm very interested to hear what people think of the design, how easy it is to use, what's confusing, etc.

Chucky, is there a way to add an image when you first submit a movie?  I wanted to add an image of "Working Girl" (http://www.impawards.com/1988/posters/working_girl.jpg) but wasn't sure how to do it.


Currently it has to be approved first.  (which I just did). 

I should probably work on allowing them to be uploaded when a new movie is added.

did you want me to do it for you, or do you feel comfortable doing it yourself?

Well I can do it once the submission is approved.  :)

ETA: Chucky for some reason I put Rubixgirl as the name of the movie, but its supposed to be Sleepless in Seattle.  :-[

I fixed it... did you enter your name?  there isn't a field on that page for a username, you have to make an account (which should be pretty painless) and log in to have it creditted to you.

Welcome new site!

Something on my mind for some time was 'what ever happened to the old spook/fun houses at amusement parks?

After checking web sites, I've found pictures of some of them they were like playgrounds for kids and adults. I found due to vandalism and possible law suits from falling after getting dizzy spinning in a barrel or getting a bright light in your eyes after turning a hidden corner!IMAGINE!!

Too bad the young people today have to get their fun watching tv or having to travel away to get their fun.

My favorite places for these were Geauga Lake-Ohio and Cedar Point-Ohio

Hey Chucky,

  A great film for images of buildings that are no longer standing is The Cooler(2003), with Alec Baldwin and William H. Macy. At the end of the movie the closing credits roll over footage of old Las Vegas casinos and hotels being demolished. A lot of them look familiar, though the only one I could name for certain was the Sands. (If you haven't seen this movie yet, check it out...it's great!)

that would be good... I made a list before I started the website of Las Vegas casinos that have been destroyed, but couldn't think of any movies that would feature them...

I havent seen Bugsy myself but due to its timeline would it contain some of the older casino's ?

I can picture a scene in Rainman that would show some that have been destroyed now.

I like the site Chucky. Somehow I can see that the WTC page will have the most contributions.

thanks... when you upload an image, you have to pick the right movie link, otherwise it goes in the wrong spot.

not your fault.  Clearly something on the page is misleading you, I need to redesign it to make it a little more straightforward I guess.

As well as places have you thought about things such as Concorde?  I realise this could be more difficult to specify as many things that appear in films no longer exist but perhaps there are some 'design classics'?

that was originally what I had planned on doing, but I thought it would help to focus on buildings and places, since it gets a little too open ended.

Geauga Lake still has that, as does Canfield Scaregrounds at the Canfield Fairgrounds.

Not having seen either of them, I can't be certain, but I would have thought the likes of the original Ocean's Eleven (1960) and Viva Las Vegas (1964) might show some.

WTC features heavily in the nightime scenes in Coyote Ugly. They can also be seen a few times in Cruel Intentions.

Gangs of New York (2002) finishes with a shot of the WTC against a 2002 Manhattan skyline.
This shot is particularly important. The Gangs of New York release date was postponed due to the 9/11 events, and the last shot with the WTC was at risk of being edited due to the controvesy of it. Director Martin Scorcese opted to keep the shot in the film, as the scene desribes how time has the unfortunate power of changing and obscuring people's memories of the past, and hints at a risk of future generations never knowing what the World Trade Center ever was. Luckily for us websites such as this one (www.onlyonfilm.com) help prevent that ever happening.

Another movie that features the Twin Towers is Escape From New York, when Snake Pliskin lands his glider on one of the roofs, and goes down to the street thru the building. Am I the only one who finds it strange that the movie not only featured the towers, but also had a scene that had a plane fly into a building.(albeit, not one of the towers) Kinda creeps me out watching it now. ???
