Do you love the San Francisco Bay Area? Do you cinema? Is Hitchcock your daddy? Then you will love this look back at the movies Hitch made in and around the city (stretching into Santa Rosa for all my SSU peeps). Lots of neat archival photos and stories including maps of locations. This will be on my coffee table for decades.... if I ever get a coffee table.

Hitchcock didn't just have a love affair with blondes; he also adored San Francisco, to the point that the city and some of its locals formed whole characters in "Vertigo."

This book chronicles the exact locations and gives "then and now" views of the locales he used.

This is the perfect book to have in the car - for quick reference - whilst driving around the Californian coast near San Francisco!

Indispensable for a tour of San Francisco - the
Vertigo locations alone are worth it, even if Carlotta's boardinghouse is long gone.
Fantastic book. I learned so much about Hitchcock and Northern California. Anyone who is a Hitchcock fan should read this book.
Read it cover to cover and actually used as a travel guide of Vertigo sites while in San Francisco.
