What A Minister Needs to Know

I am on my church's search committee for a new minister. After we narrow down our list of candidates to four or five, we are flying them out to San Francisco and interviewing them on separate weekends.

Part of the committee's job, of course, is to get them to fall in love with The City.  To do this, we are collecting San Francisco items to remind them of their stay.  It's a goodie bag of mementos -- it's not a bribe.  Really.

One of the items we decided to include the gift bag is a DVD of a movie made in -- or featuring -- San Francisco.

We've gotten suggestions of Mrs. Doubtfire  and Foul Play.  Doubtfire sounds common to me.  They may already own it, especially if they have children. Foul Play has an ominous tone, no?

Your suggestions of SF-based movies designed to woo someone to the city are appreciated!

And "Time After Time" (when Jack The Ripper goes forward in time to moreorless present day SF with HG Wells hot on his trail....really good SF atmosphere with Malcolm MacDowell and Mary Steenburgen).

And "The Game" with Michael Douglas.

And the original "Bullitt" with Steve McQueen which has a spectacular car chase through the streets of Russian Hill.

And "Dark Passage" with Bogart and Bacall.

Oh and Hitch's last movie was "Family Plot" which was also filmed here (his favorite US city was SF).
