1. How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

Inspired by a book by Abe Burrows of the same name, the original 1961 musical composed by Frank Loesser has been recently popular after a Broadway revival in 2011-2012 starring Daniel Radcliffe and, later Nick Jonas. Set in New York, the show is about J. Pierrepont Finch, a wind0w washer, who after reading the book “How To Succeed” follows the advice being given to him by the book’s “voice” on how to succeed in business without really trying.

The musical was a big success winning multiple Tony Awards and the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was revived several times. The success launched a film adaptation released in 1967 starring Robert Morse, Michele Lee, and Rudy Vallee. While a lot of the movie was also filmed in Samuel Goldywin Studios in Hollywood, California, there were some shots that were done in New York at 270 Park Avenue, Manhattan.
