From Alcatraz to Nob Hill – via the spectacular Golden Gate Bridge – San Francisco is a filmmaker’s dream. The city provides a fantastic backdrop for the silver screen and numerous directors have exploited its contours over the decades. Here, on a custom RG map from our cartographer Ed Wright, we pin some of our favourite, old and new, in the spots they were filmed.
