Do you have a favorite movie made in San Francisco?

Last edited Sat Oct 19, 2019, 07:55 PM - Edit history (4)

There have been nearly 100 movies made in San Francisco.
I'd love to list at least 25 or 30 "San Francisco movies" in the poll, but I'm only allowed 10 poll choices.
If your favorite "San Francisco movie" is not in the 10 listed in the poll, mention it in a reply, and if it gets more than one vote, I'll list it in the "Addendum" poll.

4. A Trip Down Market Street

A Trip Down Market Street



Directed by: Miles Brothers
Cinematography: Harry Miles
Release date: April 21, 1906
Running time: 13 minutes
Country: United States
Language: English

A Trip Down Market Street is a 13-minute actuality film recorded by placing a movie camera on the front of a cable car as it traveled down San Francisco’s Market Street. The film shows many details of daily life in a major early 20th century American city, including the transportation, fashions and architecture of the era. The film begins at 8th Street and continues eastward to the cable car turntable, at The Embarcadero, in front of the Ferry Building. Landmarks passed in the latter part of the first half include the Call Building (then San Francisco's tallest) and the Palace Hotel (both on the right; Lotta's Fountain is on the left between the two but is in the shade). The film was produced by the four Miles brothers: Harry, Herbert, Earle and Joe. It is notable for capturing San Francisco four days before the city's devastating earthquake and fire, which started on the morning of Wednesday, April 18, 1906.

The Miles brothers had been producing films in New York including films shot in San Francisco. In September 1905 they shot the fight between Oscar "Battling" Nelson and Jimmy Britt in Colma, California, just south of San Francisco city limits. The Miles brothers established a studio at 1139 Market Street in San Francisco in early 1906. They shot a railroad descent down Mount Tamalpais as well as the Market Street film. On April 17, Harry and Joe Miles boarded a train for New York, taking the two films with them, but they heard about the earthquake and sent the films to New York while they boarded another train headed back to San Francisco. The Turk Street house of Earle Miles survived the earthquake and subsequent catastrophic fire but the studio did not. The Miles brothers based their business out of Earle's home, and shot more film of post-earthquake scenes; some of this footage, including that of a second trip down a now devastated Market Street, reemerged in 2016. It is likely that the Market Street film survives today because it was sent away before the fire.

Several 35mm prints exist with slight changes in footage. Copies are held at the Library of Congress and the Prelinger Archives. A digital version is viewable online at Internet Archive, YouTube and Wikimedia Commons. In 2010, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
....

Dating the film

The film was originally thought to have been made in September or October 1905, based on the angles of shadows showing the sun's position. Film historian David Kiehn noticed that there were puddles of water seen in the street, and after he examined contemporary newspapers and weather reports, he realized that the early estimates were wrong: no rain had fallen in those months. Kiehn located the February 1906 registration record for a car license plate recorded in the film, and he found that the sun's angle would be the same in March as it had been in September. In 2009 Kiehn suggested that A Trip Down Market Street was filmed in late March or early April 1906, a period with many rainy days reported. He found an advertisement for the film published in the New York Clipper on April 28, 1906, which stated that the film had been shot "just one week before the complete destruction of every building shown in the picture," though this was a somewhat hyperbolic claim given that a number of buildings seen in the film were heavily damaged and later repaired. If the "one week" statement was correct then the film would have been shot on April 11. Kiehn also found a San Francisco newspaper article published on March 29, 1906, describing the Miles Brothers' intent to film aboard a cable car. In October 2010, Kiehn was featured in a 60 Minutes segment discussing the historiography of the film, especially the problem of dating it. In 2011, Richard Greene, an engineer with Bio-Rad Laboratories, published research dating the film to March 24–30, 1906, based on the sun throwing well-defined shadows on the Ferry Building. Greene confirmed that the film was shot at about 3:17 in the afternoon, based on the Ferry Building clock. Greene notes that his calculated date range is consistent with Kiehn's findings, but not consistent with the date of April 14 which was published in 2011 by the Internet Movie Database without a supporting cite. He also notes that his date range is about three weeks prior to the earthquake, inconsistent with the "one week" claim in the New York Clipper advertisement. A further source the AFI's Catalog of Holdings 1978 states the film is from 1902 rather than 1906. This is most likely incorrect as some of the cars have ragtop or bonnets which was not a commonality in 1902. Many cars of 1902 were still mostly open-aired and many still had levered-steering.

I suggest you download the higher-quality version of this video at https://archive.org/details/sanfran_h... since YouTube applies some compression of its own.

The original fuddage is taken from https://archive.org/details/ATripDown... but I undid their poor attempt at interpolation and compressed it.

The video was recorded in 1906 in San Francisco, shortly before many of those buildings were destroyed by an earthquake and the fires that followed it.

48. I think most of the damage from the 1906 SF earthquake resulted from the fires, which raged

all over the city.

(Enrico Caruso was staying at the Palace Hotel during that quake, and he vowed to never again visit S.F.)

The movie was shot in San Francisco. Seeing SF in 1924 is amazing. I know it’s obscure but if you like watching historical movies of SF this is it.

8. You left the Graduate off the list?

Okay, a lot of it takes place in LA. I would also include Inside Out and Star Trek IV. Maybe it should have been a bigger list.

Fun fact, in the Graduate, the main character is shown driving on the top deck of the Bay Bridge, toward Berkeley. The top deck of the Bay Bridge only goes away from Berkeley.

I voted for Vertigo. Sections of San Francisco can give you vertigo, what with the hilly terrain and the architecture. And Hitchcock was so good at using San Francisco.

But you're right about Dustin Hoffman driving away from Berkeley on the top deck.
That always bothered me, as an S.F. native, but it still was a very good movie.
(I especially loved the songs Paul Simon wrote for it and Norman Fell was great as the owner of the Berkeley rooming house)

too much traffic at 7 or 8 AM.
Or, they might have gotten permission to temporarily stop cars from going westbound
(again, very early on a Sunday morning)

I'm not finding Dirty Harry, and now I see why. I would have voted for it had I gotten here early enough. An iconic film of both the '70s and San Francisco. Yeah, I'm no fan of Eastwood's politics or his disjointed, on-stage conversations with furniture, but, it's still a hell of a movie.

15. Experiment in Terror- Lee Remick, Glenn Ford, a young Stefanie Powers, Ross Martin- a Blake Edwards

film, 1962. The opening sequence, of Lee Remick in a top-down '58 white Fairlane Convertible with a scarf tied around her hair going across the Bay Bridge at night, with a menacing Henry Mancini soundtrack, is the best opening scene of any movie ever.

If you live in San Francisco- Go to the 6th Floor of the San Francisco Public Library. Look for films from the Danger and Despair Knitting Circle. They have a collection of rare and out-of-print San Francisco films. You can take them out and watch them in the 6th Floor viewing rooms, but you can't check them out and take them home.

ALSO- Heart and Souls- a 1993 movie with Robert Downey Jr. and Charles Grodin - a movie you will find heartful, humorous, and affecting long after you've watched it.

the comedy/thriller featuring Goldie Hawn, Chevy Chase, Burgess Meredith, Dudley Moore, Brian Dennehy, etc.

That movie was filmed all over San Francisco and environs outside the city.

Trailer:




Probably the funniest scene in the movie:

89. Yes! I was about thirteen when I first saw it and loved it so much I bought the paperback

I had a crush on him after that too - and smart, funny, awkward and goofy suddenly became a lot more attractive! I don't think anyone knew before that movie that Ryan O'Neal was so good at comedy.
I tried to find it on netflix last night after I posted about it, and it's not on their lineup right now so I was thinking of just buying it. The only thing holding me up was the thought that it might not be as good as I remembered from the last time I got to see it, so you've helped me out with that - thanks!

The wild drive Lemmon takes the PI on through SF is pretty funny.

When the movie came out, my parents wouldn't allow me to see it because they said it was a "dirty movie." I've always wondered why. Lemmon and Provine are sharing the same bed in the opening scene, though, which was kind of advant-garde for 1964.

Hitch cut from a shot filmed on a real street to the pet store built in the studio.

That reminds me - at some point I read that one of the original ideas for the end of The Birds was to have them escape from Bodega Bay at the end and drive back down the coast toward San Francisco. The last shot of the film would be of the Golden Gate Bridge covered with birds. There was no feasible way to do the effect at the time, though, so it was abandoned. That would have been cool to see!

"Good Neighbor Sam" and "The Diary of a Teenage Girl." The latter is set circa 1976 in SF, mostly in a perfectly-preserved, funky Queen Anne house. The book's better, but the movie is good, too.

The former is not one of Jack Lemmon's favorite roles (one of a series of flicks he did while in Contract Hell), but it is funny as heck, and has a nice wild drive through the hills (which seems to be obligatory in a SF movie).

120. According to Robert Graysmith, who wrote the book that the movie "Zodiac" was based on,

Zodiac was most likely Arthur Leigh Allen.
Also, the Vallejo Police Dept. had only one suspect for the murder Zodiac committed there, and that suspect was none other than Arthur Leigh Allen (who died in 2006)

Part of the movie was filmed in San Francisco.
The scene of the only Zodiac murder there, in Pacific Heights; and many shots of the Chronicle Building at 5th & Mission streets.
Plus, they may have filmed inside the 3rd floor of the Chronicle Building, where Paul Avery, who was assigned the Zodiac case by the City Editor, and Robert Graysmith, who was a cartoonist, both worked.
(I know that building well because my first job was in the Circulation Dept. on the 2nd floor)

Why Arthur Leigh Allen was never actually caught is a mystery!

136. One of frivolous nudity...

... and tales far too ticklish to tell.

142. It has to be the 1947 Bogie & Bacall classic, "Dark Passage."

145. It's a great film with a great cast. Agnes Moorehead is wonderful in it. Complete bad guy.

It's film noir at its finest. And you can't get enough of Bogie & Bacall onscreen. If you enjoyed "The Maltese Falcon," you'll really like this one. Have you seen their first film together, "To Have and Have Not"? I still can't believe that Bacall was only 19 when she made it.

146. Great poll. I went with Vertigo but 48 Hours is #2. Oh hell, put 48 Hours at #1.
