San Francisco in Cinema: The Fan
Robert De Niro races a Mercedes V-12 against traffic - up the crookest street - in a chase scene in The Fan. Wesley Snipes is a star San Francisco Giants baseball player stalked by De Niro's obsessed fan in the 1996 thriller directed by Tony Scott. Ellen Barkin, John Lequizamo, Benicio Del Toro, and Patti D'Arbanville also star. In his October 27, 1995 column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Herb Caen wrote, "Every director who comes to town tries to top the chase in Steve McQueen's Bullitt, but nobody will ever be faster than a speeding Bullitt."
