Golden Gate on the Silver Screen
This San Francisco landmark may need its own Hollywood star.
In honor of the 80th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, this video gives a brief overview of the famous landmark’s relationship to movies. First filmed in documentary style during its construction, the bridge has made many appearances in Hollywood movies over the years.
