The area of Niagara (which straddles upstate New York and Ontario in Canada) is known as the home of Niagara Falls, the largest waterfall on earth (by volume). It is a beautiful scenic view and has played the setting for some memorable films. Which of these films set in and around Niagara is your favorite?

I inspected the link and it appears to work. Trying removing the 's' from 'https' in the link and see if that works.

It's hard to find a movie playing there, I guess.

TheMovieSmith,

For your consideration:
Gents Without Cents (1944)
The stooges are three small time actors looking for a job. They meet three girl dancers in the situation and get a small part in a big producers show at the shipyard. When the rest of the cast doesn't show up, the stooges and the girls must put on the whole show themselves. The show is a hit and the stooges marry the girls and head to Niagara Falls for their honeymoon.

Niagara Falls (1913)
The Niagara River extends between Lakes Erie and Ontario, having a descent of 326 feet throughout the course of 36 miles. The Falls, preceded and succeeded by rapids, are the largest in the world. The Canadian or Horseshoe Fall, is 6240 feet wide, with a descent of 158 feet, and the American Fall is one-third the width of the Canadian, with a descent of over 162 feet. Some wonderful effects are obtained in this film which gives extraordinarily beautiful views of the clouds of spray and of the sun shining through the mist, giving rainbow effects. ...

Niagara Motel (2005)
The Niagara Motel and the attached Riverside Grill, located in Niagara Falls, are owned and operated by Serbian father and daughter, the always angry Boris and hard working Sophie. ...

There was a great, but shortlived TV show set there called Wonderfalls. In case you wanted to add TV. :)

FYC:
After the Sun Fell
Last Embrace
Luv
Falling Angels
The Long Kiss Goodnight
Superman II
The Falls
Fever Picth

I found this but it's listing movies filmed there. No doubt some of them are actually set in Niagara Falls as well, but you'll have to go through the list to find them.

49th Parallel (aka The Invaders in the US of A) 
The final scenes take place with a train driving across the bridge over the falls.

I really like the title: it's like Hannibal - 'so iconic that only one word is needed. :)
