This website is an unofficial and non-commercial fansite for the Seventies' cop drama The Streets of San Francisco. This site was originally set up not long after the first set of official DVDs was released. Following a period of inactivity, it was officially re-launched on July 15, 2013, and the pages are still being added to the various categories.
Browse the site using the nav on the top - there are episodic summaries and screencaps, information on filming locations, video clips and a lot more to come. For the latest updates to the website, please check out the recent blog posts below. You may track all updates made to the website and news on the series by checking out the complete blog.
Please feel free to get in touch in case of any questions, suggestions or just comments.
The media page was supplemented by another ten original ABC press release photos out of all the five seasons of the show, counting a total of 50 ABC pictures right now. There are more to come in the future, plus some production photography.
Next update will comprise of the screencaps and extended summary/locations for the final episode of season one. Stay tuned! :)
I have added the screencaps for The Unicorn to the episodes' page. When a nightly robbery attempt of an Asian ship on the docks goes wrong and leads to a wild gunfight between two police officers and two strangers, a longshoreman is killed, along with one of the policemen, and another one is wounded, still holding on the shipment box - supposedly full of cobra venom to be used in research. The wounded man is hiding out on the docks between ships and buildings, with the gun and the case, believing he has actually stolen a shipment of much greater value. He meets secretly with a priest, Father Joe, and refuses to turn himself in. Meanwhile, Mike and Steve have traced the killed crook to a Las Vegas Mafia unit in San Francisco, and learn on their own that hired killers of the Mob are coming in to find the longshoreman and finish the theft - which turns out to be a multimillion-dollar shipment of heroin. Father Joe turns to Mike Stone, asking for help and medical materials for "one of his men", but refuses to reveal where to find the wounded man.
This episode was primarily filmed along the waterfront between Ferry Terminal and Pier 70. In the opening scene, Father Joe helps one of his men who tanked up on Ferry Plaza, whereas the gun shooting and the explosion of the foodtruck take place at the Embarcadero, between Piers 36 and 38. The wounded longshoreman is hiding out between ships and parts in the Central Basin (you can see the Bay Bridge in background to the north, and famous former ship building Pier 70 to the south). By the way, this place is exactly the same as used for Reid Bradshaw's boat building company in the preceding episode Shattered Image (there is that typical "Boats, Beers & Bait" shop in the background). Other locations include the heart of Japan Town, where the mobsters pick-up Dr. Jason at Post and Buchanan Streets, as well as the famous parapet of Sutro Heights Park, where Dr. Jason is released.
In order to provide a better overview, I have split the former and rather general media page into two separate categories: first, the media page, providing traditional media items (press release photos, promotional materials, books, etc.), and second, the new media page, giving access to all the information on digital stuff such as the official DVD releases, online clips, and the theme tune.
I felt the former media page got overloaded, so this separation should improve the accessibility of the materials and information given.
I have just added the screencaps for Shattered Image to the episodes' page. When Fred Marshall, a famous politician, is found harpooned on a pleasure boat, Stone and Keller can hardly count on the cooperation of the victim's private secretary who is trying to protect the image of his boss. Among the suspects are a Senator and a boat builder as well as the private secretary himself. However, the past catches up with Mike when the grieving widow arrives in San Francisco, who turns out to be an old friend of Stone's from his Potrero neighbourhood, and is unexpectedly providing an indication for her husband having committed suicide. Following an attempt on Anna Marshall's life, Stone is even more biased. In the meantime, Steve is investigating the entanglement of the boat builder's charter business, and the puzzle finally makes up a picture. With the killer already detained, Mike and Steve set a trap for the suborner.
This episode gets started in the San Francisco Bay where Fred Marshall is murdered on a pleasure boat. Mike picks up Steve at his house on Union Street before our two cops are driving to the Marina District where the boat and Fred Marshall's dead body are inspected in the Golden Gate Yacht Club's basin. Several exterior and interior scenes were taken at the Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill as well as at San Francisco City Hall, whereas the site of Reid Bradshaw's boat building company is located somewhere in the old industrial harbour area (which is now completely rebuilt) south of Mission Bay. Following their unexpected reunion, Mike and Anne Marshall are talking and walking around on the elevated level of One Maritime Plaza and, later on, moving to their former neighbourhood on Potrero Hill (the former house of Anne Marshall's family is located on Arkansas Street).
Following the recent addition of a 1973 interview with Karl Malden, the media page was now extended by a 1974 Michael Douglas interview, again published in Triangle Publications' famous TV Guide which was the market-leading nationwide tv guide publication of the 1970's and 1980's. In this interview, Douglas is telling his early beginnings, the differences between his well-known father an himself, and he is talking about the slight but notable changes concerning his rôle in the series. The interview was conducted some time around the middle of the second season and published in TV Guide of 16th February 1974.
On another note, fellow fan Gees from The Netherlands found another injury in the line of duty for Steve's vita in the season two episode 'The Hard Breed'. Just added this one to the list - and 'thanks much' for your support. :)
