  1. Hello Yuri. I am also obsessed by finding out where my favorite movies where shot. I did a small fanzine after the film "peur sur la ville" by Henri Verneuil, taking pictures of the film locations 40 years after, and I would like to send it to you. Can you please give me your postal adress ? You can write me back at
