Delaware in Cinema

Films and programs featuring Delaware (no, not the river, or the county in Ohio) in any shape or form. Some are set in the state, others are shot here, others have Delaware connections, others namedrop the state with a passing mark, and others take famous digs at the First State and all it has to offer.

I have some of the most famous and some of the most obscure ones I could find. Check out the notes for the details. Please tell me if you know of others, especially some of the smaller independent films shot in the state.
