Las cataratas del Niágara, en el cine

Marilyn Monroe, en Niagara (1953).
Marilyn Monroe, en Niagara (1953).

Que las cataratas son un objeto cinematográfico de primer orden, nadie lo duda. Hasta el punto de que ha acabado por convertirse en un sujeto más, de tal modo que cuando es protagonista, se le acaba por confundir con el decorado.

Y si hay unas cataratas que se han convertido en icono pop, esas son sin duda las cataratas del Niágara.

La base de datos de películas más potentes que yo conozco, es IMDB (Internet Movie DataBase), el paraíso de los fetichistas del cine. Una página donde, verdaderamente, no hay límite. Y de este tremendo catálogo se ha llegado a elaborar, incluso, una lista de las películas rodadas in situ o en relación con las cataratas del Niágara.

El cine ama a las catarata del Niágara

Si piensas que sólo hay un par de ellas (la de Marilyn Monroe y pocas más), estás completamente en un error. IMDB ha llegado a catalogar más de 100. Entre las de su lista, más las que yo he ido buscando, acaban conformando un listado bastante extenso:
