Golden Gate City (film #607 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Hollywood]

This 30s Castle film is a standard-issue travelogue about San Francisco. Some of the more interesting moments include four lanes of streetcar tracks on Market Street, scenes of coin-making inside the U.S. Mint, and some of the scenes of Chinatown. If you're looking for footage of San Francisco in the 30s, this is your film. Otherwise, it's pretty ordinary.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
