Telltale mispronunciations of US cities?

Jump to last reply

While passing a 4-hour layover at ORD, I heard them call a flight for Tucson, and it brought to mind an old spy-vs.-spy movie in which one spy's cover was blown because he mispronounced Tucson as "Tucksin." That got me to thinking about other US cities with very particular pronunciations, e.g., Worcester, Mass. When I hear someone pronounce it something like "Wursesstur," I know (at the very least) the person has never been there.

So what other names of towns or cities would blow the cover of an evildoer non-native who doesn't know the right pronunciation?

PS: does anyone remember what movie that was?
