5 places as seen in the movies in San Francisco

1) Mount Davidson Cross (Dirty Harry 1971)

This is where Clint Eastwood’s famous scene from the 1971 classic, Dirty Harry, was filmed. Wind your way through the park and head to the white cross at the summit where Harry Callahan brings the ransom money and ultimately meets the psychotic Scorpio. You can ‘put your nose right up to the cement’, as Clint did.
