Miami Beach has been around a long time. It has been a popular place for movies and film sets. I was reminded of this when I watched James Bond in the movie, “Gold Finger.” The opening scene was at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach. According to Wikipedia, it was the first James Bond movie made in Miami. And who can forget “Miami Vice” with Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas which brought fame and disdain to Miami Beach. Add to that “Scarface” with Al Pacino as a cocaine gangster.
Miami has seen its share of heartaches with Hurricane Andrew and a host of indictments of public figures.
Miami’s story is America’s story. A city of immigrants, palm trees and turquoise beaches.
Happy Birthday 100th birthday Miami Beach!
