A few comments:

It's your poll but I usually don't mix between series and movies, it's apples and oranges. You can make two polls out of this idea but I think the only case where the mix can work is if we vote for characters.

Also, I get it that "action" isn't to be taken literally, but then many movies feature the same town's name, why "Gangs of New York" and not "New York, New York", especially since your list has a musical. 

Since it's a poll about cities, then "Bismarck" has nothing to do with it, yes, I got it, Bismarck (and not Hitler) in North Dakota, but then I might suggest "Is Paris Burning?"

Bismark is a large city in N.D. Paris is small in Texas.
Paris is Burning does not even have 10000 votes. I already have Dallas Buyers for Texas. I'd put Last Tango in 2nd and this one first..............


But I'm looking for better replacements from other cities from other states that are not yet represented.
Thanks however.

Bismark in the title was meant as a ship named after a German leader, my comment wasn't about Bismark being a big city and Paris a small one.

Seriously, I love puns and plays on words like anyone, but I think the poll would be better if it focused on movies named after a city, not after something that happens to be also the name of an American city.

And I'm sure you can find 35 notable movies with a title referring to an American city. 

And two separate polls, one for movies and one for TV and it'll be perfect. Trust me, it'll be just fine :)
