Pont de Bir-Hakeim | 2:30 pm, 03-2008


Pont de Bir-Hakeim, 2:30 pm, March 2008 | This is the bridge where Marlon Brando unleashed his anguished scream as the train rumbled overhead in the opening scene of “Last Tango in Paris.”  The 100-year-old span links the 15th arrondissement with the Passy neighborhood in the 16th.  With its ornamentation and double-deck structure, it appeals to filmmakers and photographers alike.  And the train (Métro line 6) still rumbles overhead every few minutes.
