From Alcatraz to Alamo Square, San Francisco is full of photo opportunities for movie buffs to capitalize on during a vacation. Whether your thing is drama, comedy or action, there are sites featured from tons of films in the City by the Bay and all of them are easy to access.
The spot where Jimmy Stewart saved Kim Novak in "Vertigo" is at Fort Point, just under the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. A few miles down the bay is Alcatraz, where Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery prevented missiles from launching and Clint Eastwood may or may not have escaped. Up on shore, there's Coit Tower, City Hall, the Transamerica Pyramid, all those hills that have been the setting for so many chase scenes.
