Footsteps in the Fog is a celebration of the San Francisco films of Alfred Hitchcock. The master director's familiarity with Northern California greatly influenced his decision to use Bay Area locations in several of his landmark motion pictures, and more importantly was often the source of inspiration for many of these same cinema classics.

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.

Recommends it for: hitchcock fans, san franciscans

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!

Fantastic book. I learned so much about Hitchcock and Northern California. Anyone who is a Hitchcock fan should read this book.

Indispensable for a tour of San Francisco - the
Vertigo locations alone are worth it, even if Carlotta's boardinghouse is long gone.
