A sizeable and landscape-shaped paperback, "Footsteps in the Fog" will be of interest to anyone who has a casual affection for director Alfred Hitchcock and his cinematic associations with the San Francisco Bay area -- from Santa Rosa and Bodega Bay down to Point Lobos and Mission San Juan Bautista. For Hitchcock completists it will be red meat.

The book is filled not just with details like the (disjointed) path of Scottie's car when he follows Madeleine in her random drive around San Francisco's streets but is larded with photos that illustrate the locations as they were then, when "Vertigo" was shot in 1956, and as they appear today. Contents include descriptions and photos of locations not ordinarily associated with Hitchcock's obvious use of the city as a location. Some of "Rebecca" was shot in the area and so was some of "Family Plot." This is the place to learn where those shots were made.

We also get to see a bit of Hitchcock noodling around in the Bay Area, including shots of his dasha in Scott's Valley, half-way between the city and Monterey, an impressive house in a setting so awesomely beautiful that in its corporeal existence it raises the hair on the back of one's neck.

It's a splendid book for its purposes yet I found it sad. It's sad because despite the director's florescence as an artist during this period, his career ended so dismally, empty of talent and full of vodka. I've lived in the area for years, including the year during which this film was being made, and change has taken place since then, as it will, but it's not always a gladdening change. The two missions are still the same, and the Palace of the Legion of Honor, but the enchanted McKittrick Hotel, which Madeleine enters and her presence seems to dissolve, has been demolished and replaced by a not-so-magical tennis court. And Ernie's Restaurant, a landmark for years, is lamentably defunct. San Francisco resembles no other city in America and it would be a shame to see it lose its unique character.

For ordinary purposes the book is a compelling browse and worth its cost.

If you are a fan of Hitchcock movies and the City is your home, you must have this book. There is more geography and history of the Bay Area in this book than in a library of textbooks. Fascinating from the git-go both in facts about San Francisco and insights into the personality of Alfred Hitchcock, this book will keep you entranced until you come to the end and reluctantly put it down. The book is nicely illustrated with stills from the movies and contemporaneous views of the same locations for reference. There are many allusions to personalities of San Francisco's past and not only of persons in the entertainment industry. When you have read this book, you will be an expert on San Francisco of the 40's, 50's and 60's and much the richer for it. As a reference, you will be going back to "Footsteps in the Fog" to refresh your knowledge. I recently watched "The Birds" again and found the movie fresh and involving due to having read this book's scene by scene account of the filming. The author's research is notable for its completeness and depth. You will not regret buying this book.

Good evening (or good morninig!) Amazon fans of Sir Alfred Hitchcock! (1899-1980) Hitchcock loved Northern California and so will you after reading the well researched words and looking at the pictures in this splendid book!

Levin and Rosenthal are young film historians who also love San Francisco and its environs. In this meticulously researched book they mate words and pictures of the sites seen in Hitchcok classics filmed in the area with how those same sites look today!

They focus their prime attention on "Vertigo" filmed in San Franciso: "Shadow of A Doubt" in the charming northern California city of Santa Rosa: and "The Birds" where the master film director focused on the isolated Sonama coast town of "Bodega Bay."

The authors also tell of us of other shots Hitch filmed in Northern California fog and wind and sea! (such as shots in

"Rebecca"; "Topaz" and "Family Plot".

We join Hitch and his wife Alma as they stay in such great

hotels as the Fairmont and Mark Hopkins; dine at Ernie's and

Jack's" and enjoy the rich wines produced in this great grape

producing region! (the Hitchcoks grew their own grapes and sold

them to a winery in the area!)

If you love Hitchcock, the movies, beautiful scenery or the glories of Northern California then curl up with this excellent book!

This reviewer only wishes someone would take the idea of the

two authors and use it for all the other Hitchcock classics filmed in locales from London to selected sites througout the

world.

TCM featured this book on their network and interviewed the authors and persons involved in filming the movies in Hitch's

films shot in Northern California. I appreciate them bringing this book to my attention.

Have a good evening following Hitch in the foggy swirl of

enigmatic, beatuiful, seductive and at times sinister San Francisco!
