9. The Producers


The Producers began as a Mel Brooks film in 1968 starring Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder. For many, this version of the film cannot be beat. However, in 2001, the movie was adapted into a musical staring Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, which won 12 Tonys. Its popularity resulted in a new version of the film replete with the songs from the musical. Viewers will easily recognize Central Park’s Bethesda Terrace and Mall, the Plaza Hotel, and Rockefeller Center, amongst other New York City settings.
