legally blond was apparently shot in Cali. The only authentic harvard shot is the air shot.

Yeah, I think Harvard University has a general policy banning movie film crews from campus.  The shots of "Harvard" in other movies are thus similarly fake.

Well, kind of. I think the movie crews are banned from Harvard-owned land, but the film crews shoot from the streets and sidewalks which are technically Cambridge property. And Harvard allows that.

Spike Lee filmed at my school for "25th Hour."  Supposedly a movie or two has used our campus to imitate Harvard, but I can't say that I know what movies (if any) prove the rumor.  We have Law and Order filming in our bookstore tomorrow.  Random.

"Though Harvard has been featured in many US films, including Legally Blonde, The Firm, The Paper Chase, Good Will Hunting, With Honors, How High, and Harvard Man, the University has not allowed any movies to be filmed on its campus since Love Story in the 1960s; most films are shot in look-alike cities, such as Toronto, and colleges such as Wheaton and Bridgewater State [6]. Also set in Harvard is Korean hit TV series Love Story in Harvard[7], filmed at University of Southern California."
