Pop Pilgrims

San Francisco: Jimmy Stewart's Vertigo apartment

One iconic location from Hitchcock's suspenseful classic.

About This Episode

In Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 classic Vertigo, Jimmy Stewart follows Kim Novak all around San Francisco, offering a tour of the city inside the mystery. The two end up at Stewart's apartment, and the location--the exterior, anyway--wasn't a movie set. It's a still-standing residence on Lombard Street, and it doesn't look too different now than it did more than 50 years ago. Jeffrey Anderson from cinematical.com joined Brian to chat about the movie and the city.
