To the thundering tones of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue Gordon Willis’ black and white montage opens on some of the greatest metropolitan landmarks we have ever known, as the opening narration states “He adored New York City.” What else do you need? Well, how about a benefit at MoMA, a carriage ride through Central Park, a hilarious boat ride on the lake, a pizza at John’s of Bleecker, an argument at the Museum of Natural History, and of course sunrise under the Queensboro Bridge.
