It might be shocking to remember the scene just outside the hotel in the 1976 film, Taxi Driver. Travis Bickle, played by Robert De Niro, managed to pick up a young and model-like Betsy, played by Cybill Shepherd. Many other hotels could have been expected to appear in this nostalgic flick during a porn-infested, drug-ridden Manhattan at the time, but not such a high-class stopover as the St Regis.

Coming to the realization that she is no longer a young leading lady, Goldie Hawn cries over a cocktail at the King Cole in The First Wives' Club.
In The Godfather, Michael (Al Pacino) and Kay, (Diane Keaton) spend a night in one of the hotel's elaborate rooms.
