"Before there was Hollywood, there was Fort Lee": Fort Lee Film Commission chronicles the fascinating history of filming in New Jersey

Set in the fictional town of ‘Garrison’, New Jersey, just across the George Washington Bridge from Manhattan, the movie was filmed in Edgewater and Fort Lee in New Jersey.

The ‘police station’ is actually Edgewater’s public water and electric works building.

The opening sequence was filmed, in five fraught hours, overnight on the lower level of the George Washington Bridge itself.
