Mississippi: Visit Canton Movie Museums


Watch the original 1948 They Live by Night, starring Farley Granger and directied by Nicholas Ray.

Robert Altman’s remake of Nicholas Ray’s 1948 They Live by Night was filmed in Mississippi at the towns of Jackson and Canton.

Altman set a trend. Since 1974, the historic downtown district of Canton has hosted productions including John Grisham thriller A Time To Kill, My Dog Skip, with Kevin Bacon, and the Coen brothers' O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Now Canton has not one, but two museums, where tourists can see sets from the movies. Visit Canton Movie Museums.
