A Perfect Murder (1998)

Millionaire industrialist Steven Taylor (Michael Douglas) is a man who has everything but what he craves most: the love and fidelity of his wife, Emily (Gwyneth Paltrow). A hugely successful player in the New York financial world, he considers her to be his most treasured acquisition. But she needs more than simply the role of dazzling accessory. Brilliant in her own right, she works at the U.N. and is involved with a struggling artist (Viggo Mortensen) who fulfills her emotional needs. When her husband discovers her indiscretion, he sets out to commit the perfect murder and inherit her considerable trust fund in the bargain.

otsoNY Comments: The townhouse on the corner of 91st Street and 5th Avenue was only used for exterior shots. The interior shots were done in a studio with a photograph of the New York skyline positioned at the windows to make it look like the view from the original townhouse.
