Keaton and Hitchcock cross paths in VERTIGO

PostFri Mar 31, 2017 6:14 pm

Filmed on location in San Francisco, Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Vertigo (1958) provides tantalizing mid-century glimpses of the City in sparkling VistaVision color. Remarkably, when Scottie (James Stewart) traces Madeleine (Kim Novak) by car back to his own apartment, they cross paths twice with where Buster Keaton filmed his nightmarish police chase in Day Dreams (1922). You can even see the corner where Scottie's mid-century apartment will be built during Buster's chase, with a view of Lombard Street before all the twists and turns were built.

Your wish is my command! Well, an eagle-eyed reader found this, not me, but Bullitt drives past Scottie's apartment. I've updated my post with this new info.
