Another Chicago suburb, Tom Cruise made "Risky Business" here back in 1983 - well, the script said the family home was in Glencoe at least. Actually, the movie was filmed in nearby Highland Park. The creative juices flow aplenty around Glencoe, with such famous entertainers as Harold Ramis, Bruce Dern and Fred "Wonder Years" Savage calling it home. Palatial homes along the shores of Lake Michigan make Glencoe ideal "for a certain kind of dreamy kid," wrote author Rich Cohen.
