Steve Martin was filmed on a moving trailer with his arm caught in a Citroën car for the opening scene of the 'Pink Panther II' movie in Winthrop Square. Parts of the scene were also filmed in Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower. This Winthrop Square location was chosen because of it's French look, and signs in the background were changed to French.
