For filmmakers like Orson Welles and John Huston, and novelists like Dashiell Hammett, San Francisco has been the backdrop for many of the most thrilling crime tales of the twentieth century — its winding streets and climbing towers proving a perfect setting for gripping tales of deception and disorientation. From Hammett’s iconic private eye Sam Spade, to Welles’ wild noir classic The Lady from Shanghai, it’s time to explore the cinematic dark side of the Golden City.

Join New York Adventure Club as we explore San Francisco’s role in several iconic crime films of the mid-20th century, including its part in the creation of classic characters like Sam Spade and husband-and-wife mystery solvers Nick and Nora Charles (The Thin Man series).

Hosted by documentarian and author Steven C. Smith, our virtual experience will include:

  • A discussion of several of the best noir films set in San Francisco, including The Lady from Shanghai, The Maltese Falcon, and Woman on the Run
  • The story of how Dashiell Hammett used his real-life experience as a Pinkerton detective to create San Francisco crime fiction
  • A virtual visit to Golden City locations used onscreen
  • A celebration of Alfred Hitchcock’s noir-stained masterpiece Vertigo, set and partly filmed in San Francisco

Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with Steven — any and all questions about San Francisco Noir are welcomed and encouraged!
