Artist's tribute to the films of San Francisco

http://www.christinaempedocles.com/work/2012

I read about this artist and then went hunting for the pictures. This is a public arts campaign featuring films shot in and about San Francisco and the artist has drawn her own interpretation of several classic movie posters. She works entirly in pencil on paper yets gets this incredible detail and realism. The THX one is my favoite.

Very nice. But obviously, where's Vertigo?

I like that (with the possible exception of Dirty Harry) she picked films that aren't the go-to films instantly associated with SF. I bet most people don't know THX was shot there.

Re: Artist's tribute to the films of San Francisco

Without clicking on that link, the San Francisco films that immediately come to mind are:

VERTIGO (1958)
DIRTY HARRY (1971)
THE LINEUP (1958)
PORTRAIT IN BLACK (1960)
THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN (1973)
BULLITT (1968)
IMPACT (1949)
OUT OF THE PAST (1947), which is split between L.A, S.F., Lake Tahoe and some mountain town in Calif.
D.O.A. (1950) - the beginning section
MAN-TRAP (1961)

There must be more famous recent films shot there, but I can't think of them offhand.

So the question for me is how many of these are referenced by that artist?

P.S. Only DIRTY HARRY. I completely forgot about WHAT'S UP DOC?

Final Analysis (1992) also comes to mind for me.

Proving what I geek I am, STAR TREK IV is the first that pops into my mind. DIRTY HARRY is the second.
