Top 5 Movies featuring San Francisco for action lovers

Guys,

it is getting colder these days as the Indian Summer came to an end. We find more time for watching movies and this is great. There a quite a few famous, old movies featuring San Francisco - and even destroying it. 

Here are my top 5 - all of them featuring San Francisco and having a dramatic effect on the city (aka destroying San Francisco or at least parts of it):


A mild-mannered chemist and an ex-con must lead the counterstrike when a rogue group of military men, led by a renegade general, threaten a nerve gas attack from Alcatraz against San Francisco.





When a mad man calling himself 'the Scorpio Killer' menaces the city, tough as nails San Francisco Police Inspector Harry Callahan is assigned to track down and ferret out the crazed psychopath.


A Barbary Coast saloonkeeper and a Nob Hill impresario are rivals for the affections of a beautiful singer, both personally and professionally in 1906 San Francisco.



To save Earth from an alien probe, Admiral Kirk and his fugitive crew go back in time to 20th century Earth to retrieve the only beings who can communicate with it, humpback whales.



An all guts, no glory San Francisco cop becomes determined to find the underworld kingpin that killed the witness in his protection.




What are your favorite movies featuring (and maybe destroying San Francisco)?

Cheers,
Johanna
