Classic films like Roman Holiday, Out Of Africa, and the early James Bond movies captivated audiences by immersing them in real-life, far-away locations. But not every film is shot on-location, obviously; sometimes, cheaper lookalike cities or sets are used to stand in for other cities, which is a completely normal filmmaking practice. But sometimes, the two things clash, and a movie that's supposed to be set in a very specific place - so specific that the place's name is literally in the name of the movie - isn't actually even shot there.

Here's a list of movies that have places in the title but were actually shot in entirely different settings, and a few facts about how it all played out.
