Los Angeles:

Do you know which famous 1990 film thrust The Beverly Wilshire hotel in LA into the limelight?

Pretty Woman is one of the highest grossing romantic comedies in history, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts.
 
In her Oscar-nominated performance, Roberts plays Vivian Ward, a Hollywood prostitute hired by Edward Lewis (Gere), a ruthless corporate raider who changes his ways after he hires her to be his escort at social events while he’s in Los Angeles. Numerous scenes take place and were filmed in Beverly Hills, including a shopping spree on Rodeo Drive and the hotel where Roberts stays, the landmark Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills.
 
For the last 30 years the Beverly Wilshire hotel has capitalized on the success of Pretty Woman. Funny, considering that the hotel appears on screen for just under three minutes of the film’s two-hour running time, as only exteriors of the building were shot there.
