It didn't take long for Hollywood to find the Hudson Valley fit for film. And once a 1918 "Tarzan" film set up the lights, cameras and action in Croton, cinematic magic would continue to find its way to Westchester County.

Along the way, Westchester itself has done some of the acting. Shockingly, "The Departed," the 2006 Academy Award winner for best picture famous for its Boston setting, had some sequences filmed in the Westchester County Courthouse in White Plains. Wicked crazy!

In alphabetical order, here are 101 of the critical darlings, big blockbusters and forgotten flicks to find cinematic glory in Westchester County since 1981.
