STUDS (Thumbnail image)


San Francisco Studs. Well, it is the “Year of the Horse”. Top row, left to right, Jimmy Stewart stalking Kim Novak, (Well, that’s what he was doing, but it was nice guy stalking) to Fort Point in the 1958 film ‘Vertigo’ When she jumps into the water in an attempt to kill herself, Jimmy leaps into the choppy water, and rescues her. What a stud! Second from top, Clint Eastwood, “Dirty Harry” dispatches three hold up men in an extremely violent, but very satisfying scene, (If you like seeing a bad guy getting emasculated by a Magnum ’44) from the 1976 film ‘The Enforcer’ at 2nd and Minna Streets. What a stud! Yes, a violent stud, but nevertheless…… Incidentally, Buster Keaton used this off beat location for the start of the chase scene in his 1922 movie ‘Daydreams’. Second row from the bottom, Lee Marvin, who has been double crossed, shot and left in an empty cell on Alcatraz, swims back to San Francisco to seek revenge in the 1967 film ‘Point Blank’. What a stud! I mean, I can’t swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco with three bullet holes in me! Bottom row, Crème de la Stud, Clark Gable, watches Downtown San Francisco burn to the ground in the 1936 film ‘San Francisco’. Tough guy, “Blackie” Norton, humbled by Mother Nature; he knows when he’s met his match. What a stud!
