Films Set in New Orleans

For the past two weeks, horrific scenes of devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina have seared our collective consciousness. Here in Houston, the epic proportions of the tragedy are all too real as our city tends to thousands fleeing the wreckage. As for myself, the past week was spent gathering clothing for the survivors and much-needed supplies for our local SPCA. I hope to start volunteering at the Houston FOOD BANK soon. As a nation, we’re in this for the long haul. If you haven’t yet, I urge you to DONATE either money, needed items, or your time to help rebuild the lives of those living in the Gulf Coast.

On a lighter note, here is a nice list of classic films set in and around New Orleans from the folks at the Classic Movies website. For a more tongue-in-cheek list, the Metrobloggers of New Orleans has a list of cheesy and bad films set in their fair city. I take minor exception with them for listing THE BIG EASY (1987) as a bad film. I like The Big Easy, or should I say, I like Dennis Quaid in The Big Easy!
