Watch the World Trade Twin Towers play a part in the movies of the past. Fascinating. See Ava Gardner, King Kong, Superman, The Wiz, Bruce Willis, so many. The movie name is seen on the screen. So sad the towers were not built back exactly as they were. What a tribute that would have been. What a thumb in the eye to the Koran’s calls for death that would have been.
Seeing how directors frame their shots to perfectly capture the Towers is an amazingly effective way to remind us just how iconic they were.
The video, edited by Dan Meth, shows everything from shots of them still under construction in 1972’s The Hot Rock, to Snake Plisken landing atop one in Escape from New York, to little, lost Kevin McCallister visiting them in Home Alone 2. Meth describes his video like this:
