Professor of Cinema Steven Kovacs, an expert on San Francisco film history, was interviewed by KGO-TV about famous movie scenes filmed in the city. San Francisco has been a popular place to shoot movies for nearly a century, Kovacs says. “Maybe the first big film that was partly shot here was [1924’s] ‘Greed’ by Eric Von Stroheim,” he said. “There’s still a building [where some of it was shot] on the corner of Hayes and Laguna, and so that’s where it began.”
