Hitchcock, that master of suspense, loved San Francisco and used its beauty, elegance, and mystery to telling effect in his films. Mr. Sherwin will lead us on a walking tour from Nob Hill to Union Square to look at some of the hotels, clubs, retail stores, and other locations still in existence that were featured in Vertigo and other Hitchcock classics. And he’ll explain why Hitchcock chose the sites and how he filmed the scenes he set in them. You’ll also learn about the architecture and history of these locations and discover what they can tell us regarding the San Francisco of both fifty years ago and today. Run a video or stream Vertigo, then don your walking shoes and join the tour!
