Academy Award winning movie Bullitt shot on location in 1968 in San Francisco. Famous for the great car chase scene with Steve McQueen driving green '68 Mustang chasing Dodge Charger through the streets of San Francisco. This is the sequence at Larkin and Chestnut streets when McQueen misses the turn and backs up. The Charger had just clipped the Ford parked on the corner taking out one of the film cameras on Chestnut St.
Dirty Harry, 1971 classic movie. The first in the series of Clint Eastwood (as SFPD Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan) crime films that was shot on location in San Francisco and Marin County, Ca. The final action scene was shot in Larkspur, Ca. where Dirty Harry chases the bad guy to the old rock quarry after jumping on top of the school bus. The rock quarry and pond, that he throws his badge in at the end of the movie, have been developed over the last 40 years into commercial office, shopping and residential buildings. Video clip.
