Streisand causes a collision simply by crossing Bush
Street at Jones at the outset of the screwball comedy, What's Up
Doc. This is one of those films in which the City is more than just
a location, it's a living, breathing character. Starring Streisand, Ryan
O'Neil, and San Francisco, this 1972 Peter Bagdonovich film is wacky and
fun. See locations including Nob Hill, North Beach, Chinatown and more as
Barbra and Ryan match wits against spies, jewel thieves and other denizens,
all in possession of identical plaid bags. This was Madelyn Kahn's debut
feature. Among What's Up Doc locations are the concrete
stairs at Alta Plaza, which remain scarred from its use in the famous
car chase involving a VW bug, a Chinese dragon, a taxicab, a limousine,
a convertible, and an ice cream cart. A partial list of locations would
