Do you have a favorite movie made in San Francisco? [View all]

Last edited Sat Oct 19, 2019, 08:55 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.
