In the context of an article about filmmakers avoiding SF because of its expense, SFGate has put together a nice interactive map mashup showing the location of several movies filmed in San Francisco.

The map can be dragged. The movies icons are coded by genre. Clicking on an icon brings up information about the movie, its SF locations, and even a link to the trailer.

The list of movies doesn’t seem very complete to me. One I can think of right away that’s missed is Eric von Stroheim’s Greed, which was at least partially shot in the city. The site lists only the following. What else is missing?

  • D.O.A.
  • Invasion of the Body Snatchers
  • Dirty Harry
  • Vertigo
  • What’s Up Doc?
  • The Conversation
  • Pal Joey
  • Bullitt
  • Petulia
  • Dark Passage
  • Flower Drum Song
  • The Towering Inferno
  • Zodiac
  • Milk
