Film nuts and S.F. history fiends, we've got a weekend time waster for you! Through screengrabs and current photographs, the awesome site Reel S.F.—which we just stumbled upon and are addicted to—tracks the exact location of several classic movies shot in our fair city, taking viewers on a tour, neighborhood by neighborhood, through scenes from Dark Passage (1947), The Lady From Shanghai (1947), The House On Telegraph Hill (1951), Vertigo (1958), Bullitt (1968), and many more! The best part: It's not only flash-back images that the site provides, but stunning Then and Now comparisons of the exact places scenes took place. Get your bookmark finger ready and prepare to get lost in nostalgia for a couple of hours!
