(Lee Remick) is a prisoner in her own home at 100 St. Germain Avenue in
Twin Peaks when she's stalked by Ross Martin's asthmatic murderer in Blake
Edwards' 1962 thriller Experiment in Terror. The film noir story
also starring Glenn Ford and a young Stephanie Powers is gripping and suspenseful.
Stark photography and a taut Henry Mancini score enhance the mood. Experiment
in Terror is rich with City locations. Among them: Remick is first accosted
by Ross in the garage at 100 St. Germain.
Stool pigeon Nancy Ashton (Paula Huston) is murdered in her home at 2632
Larkin Street. The Hallidie Building
is visible from Remick's workplace, the Crocker-Anglo
National Bank at Montgomery and Post Streets. Notice the alley street
that Remick's character uses when she leaves the rear entrance of the bank.
That street is now covered by a great glass canopy - since it's the Crocker
Galleria! Killer Martin is captured on the pitcher's mound at Candlestick
Park. The 38 Geary bus, Kaiser Hospital, Broadway, Jackson Square,
the Powell & Hyde cable car, and Fisherman's Wharf are also shown.
Watch for two-way traffic on the upper deck of the Bay
Bridge in the opening sequence!
