Okay, tomorrow (thunderous drum roll, please) Noir City opens in the cavernous Castro Theatre, and if you’d like to check out locations from some of the movies showcased in past years that were shot on location here in San Francisco, have I got the site for you! The mysterious CitySleuth has launched Reel SF, taking you locale-by-locale through D.O.A., Bullitt, Vertigo, Thieves’ Highway, Dark Passage, Woman on the Run, The Sniper, The Lineup and more — with more to come. San Francisco, movies, especially noir movies — check it out, and have fun.
In 1977 Don Herron began leading The Dashiell Hammett Tour, now the longest-running literary tour in the nation. On this site you’ll find information on current walks — dates, where to meet, arranging tours by appointment — plus a hard-boiled blog with news, reviews of books and film, and a dash of noir.
The latest and greatest edition to self-guide you up and down the mean streets.
