Dark Passage streetcar

J.D. Lowe wondered what kind of streetcar Harry’s Wagon might have been. That made me want to look at Dark Passage (dir. Delmar Daves, 1947) again to see the streetcar that Vincent Parry/Allan Linnell (Humphrey Bogart) rides. Here it is, turning around at the intersection of Powell and Market. There’s more on this streetcar ride at Reel SF.

How I’d like to step off that streetcar and into Owl Drug to pick up some shave cream and dentifrice.


August 23: J.D. Lowe identifies no. 520 as a streetcar manufactured in 1891.

Isn't he waiting for her in the drugs store and we also see it through the window? Great film. Especially the love theme.

I think that must be another movie.

Then it must have been at The BART station. Remember they have to meet again so we can hear that dam song one last time.

Ah, now I know what you mean: he’s at a bus station, puts the song on the jukebox, and calls Irene.
