In Hollywood, Detroit Is
Not A Sore Subject (Detroit Free Press/Aug 11/1981/US)
Some Hollywood types came to Detroit last summer looking for decay, but only
found disappointment. The movie men, who were scouting sites for the current
release Escape From New York opted for St. Louis instead. A Detroit city
spokeswoman, who chauffeured the visitors to various neighborhoods, explains:
"We had nothing decrepit enough. They couldn't find any buildings where the
bricks were half off."
