As with "Ferris Beuller", most John Hughes films deal with Chicago in one way or another.  So do the teen films "Adventures in Babysitting" and "Risky Business".  And of course there is "Chicago".

Hey folks,

This may seem like a pedestrian idea, but I am supposed to help out with a 
list of films that center on Chicago, from the mainstream to the less 
so.  Could you send me any suggestions you might have that would add to the 
below list?  The turnaround time is just a day or two, so if you get this 
after tomorrow (Saturday), forget it.

1---The Blues Brothers.
2---The Untouchables
3---High Fidelity.
4---Ferris Bueller's Day Off
5---The Fugitive (PG-13), 127 minutes.  Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee Jones, and 
that drain pipe
6---North by Northwest (1959)
7---Flatliners (1989)
8---Streets of Fire (1983)
9---I-Robot (2003)
10---The Road to Perdition (2001)
11---Love and Action in Chicago (1989)
12---The Sting
13---Hoop Dreams

Thanks!
Leo
