The Eiffeltower played a major role in A view to a kill James Bond where there is a parachutejump from the tower and a pursuit that starts from the Pont Alexandre III in a bateaux-mouche.

The Pont Alexander III with its exuberant décor is known as the most beautiful bridge of Paris and can be seen in Anastasia with Ingrid Bergman, the sixth season of The Sopranos and in Ronin where Robert de Niro and Jean Reno have a deal under the bridge.

When the Walt Disney cartoon Anastasia came out in 1997, we were staying with our boys then 8 and 5 at our apartment Montmartre Studio-loft. We went together to the movie theatre on the Champs-Elyseés and had a great evening specially because the kids did recognize several places they had visited that day.
