The original 1968 movie "Rosemary's Baby" was set in New York City, with many scenes filmed at the Dakota, the landmark Upper West Side apartment complex. NBC's two-part remake (beginning tonight at 9), however, decided to shift the action to Paris. But these five NYC-set movies remained in the Big Apple when they hit the small screen:
The Odd Couple (1970-75) One of the few TV shows that was better than the movie on which it was based: a riotous comedy about two divorced men -- slovenly Oscar (Jack Krugman) and fastidious Felix (Tony Randall) -- sharing a Park Avenue apartment and driving each other crazy.
Fame (1982-87) Several of the actors (Debbie Allen, Gene Anthony Ray, Lee Curreri, Albert Hague) from the 1980 movie about students at the High School for the Performing Arts reprised their roles for the TV version.
