Top 10 Movies in Which London Plays Somewhere Else

Legally Blonde (Harvard)

Next

Of course, with London being such a seat of learning and home to so many fine universities, you’d assume that it took on the role of Harvard because the producers felt it had the grandeur needed. Actually, it was a far more pragmatic reason – the movie’s ending hadn’t gone down well with test audiences and they needed to add an extra scene on to the end. But Reece Witherspoon was no longer in America – she had gone to London to start filming The Importance of Being Earnest, so the production team followed her there and got the graduation scene at Dulwich College. The rest of the cast weren’t there, but that’s OK – they were spliced in afterwards.
