1955 San Francisco: through the eyes of an amateur filmmaker

January 6, 2012 at 5:39 pm (Anything and Everything)

GREAT look into San Francisco in 1955.

Shot by filmmaker Tullio Pellgrini, the 20-minute movie gives an up-close-and-personal tour of the city from Pellgrini’s automobile. His narration is charmingly earnest in a way that’s promotional of the city’s virtues while never stepping over into being particularly phony or cloying.

If you have about 21 minutes, this is great.
