The iconic Chicago blockbusters of the 1980s, including "The Blues Brothers," "Risky Business" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" along with more recent hits like "The Dark Knight," are imbued with Chicago's presence. Chicago's distinctive look is an integral part of their narrative landscape. And yet the city, much like the mercurial lake which it sits upon, never seems to appear the same way twice. Other, lesser known productions have harnessed Chicago's chameleon-like qualities and showcased areas not normally seen in the more mainstream Hollywood films shot here.
