The Big Easy is not only a frequent setting for the Super Bowl, but also novels, movies, TV -- even "Star Trek." "A Streetcar Named Desire," by Tennessee Williams. "The Feast of All Saints," by Anne Rice. "Treme," the HBO series set in New Orleans, post-Hurricane Katrina. "King Creole," a 1958 musical-drama starring Elvis Presley, Carolyn Jones and Walter Matthau. "A Walk on the Wild Side," by Nelson Algren, the basis for the 1962 film "Walk on the Wild Side." On "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," character Benjamin Sisko is a native of New Orleans.
