Here are our top movie picks for capturing New Orleans interior design, past and present:

* A Love Song for Bobby Long. If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s worth a watch. Apart from being a really good movie… it offers a charming look inside a Creole cottage!

* Interview with a Vampire. Ok, a little blood to deal with on this one, but the interior shots from the 18th century are rather spectacular.

* Double Jeopardy. Good New Orleans interior design scenes toward the end of the movie. Also good outdoor scenes in and around the French Quarter.

* A Streetcar Named Desire. Even in black-and-white, this movie captures the languid heat and interiors of French Quarter homes.

* King Creole. You get to see and hear Elvis Presley and see scenes inside his character’s French Quarter home.
