We all know Buffalo is a beautiful setting, and many film directors have thought the same thing.  They’ve found that the city and citizens of Buffalo were welcoming to film crews and made them feel at home. Not to mention that it’s far less expensive to film in Buffalo than in New York.  One of the best-known productions associated with Buffalo was The Natural, a 1984 film adaptation of the novel by Bernard Malamud. The film, directed by Barry Levinson, follows the ups and downs of lead character Roy Hobbs’ life and baseball career. Robert Redford played Hobbs, and the cast also included Robert Duvall, Glenn Close, Kim Basinger, Barbara Hershey, Joe Don Baker, Darren McGavin and Michael Madsen.
