San Francisco locations featured in Alfred Hitchcock's film "Vertigo"

Alfred Hitchcock loved San Francisco and the Bay Area. Today it's still easy to find locations featured in his films including "Vertigo." 

The English director set one of the most dramatic scenes from the film at Fort Point. Although when Madeleine Elster (Kim Novak) falls into the water, and is rescued by John Ferguson (Jimmy Stewart), it's actually a set at Paramount Studios in Hollywood.

Another scene takes place in the cemetery of Mission Dolores.

Madeleine Elster (Kim Novak) also visits a gallery in the California Palace of the Legion of Honor.
