    Don’t know where to put this but “Location #2: Roger arrives at the hotel” is almost correct but not quite. The address – 768 5th Avenue – is indeed for the Plaza Hotel but the modern photo you have is the front door. Cary Grant entered the hotel from the side entrance on Central Park South.

    Regarding “1212 North Michigan Avenue” in the film, the privous shot of Cary Grant getting out of a 1957 Checker Cab Model A8 (Chicago Checker Taxi) , the street address is actually 401 Michgan Ave. The next shot is the studio phony 1212 Michigan ave
