Hitchcock's San Francisco

Alfred Hitchcock's San Francisco
If you're an Alfred Hitchcock fan, you will want to visit San Francisco and the locations used in his classic, Vertigo. Almost all of the locations are still in existence, including Fort Point, wher Madelaine falls into the Bay, The Brocklebank Apartments (where Kim Novak's character lived), Union Square, Lombard Street (where Jimmy Stewart's character lived), and many more. Also, if you drive down to San Juan Batista, you will be able to walk around the square of the old mission, where Kim Novak meets her fate from the Bell Tower.
Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo is one the most classic suspense mystery films ever produced. Alfred was a master of suspense, and I credit him with inspiring all films engaging in this exciting technique.
