The Reluctant Traveler Scouts San Francisco

Depending on what I’m working on, I like to have a movie on. It’s a thing.

That led me to an SF-based website featuring “then and now” photographs of San Francisco film locations.


These are vintage films, iconic favorites, all well-known. My challenge to you (apologies for those who don’t know San Francisco) is to guess what movie and where. Some of the photos have been altered. (Hint–these are all on the linked website, if you can’t stand it.)

1. Bogie gets a new face and Bacall a new boyfriend.

2. A daughter in this Norwegian family dreams of becoming a writer

3, A hustling singer meets a gorgeous blond and a stripper turned heiress.

  4. This young man endures several dates from hell before he meets the love of his life.

5. Flower children romp the City and listen to music.

6. A sound man listens in on one bad plot.

How many did you guess? Answers next Sunday.
