Door #22 -- May 23, 2012

The door is hardly visible, but I had to include this shot of the Argonaut Book Shop on Sutter Street.  In Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, Barbara Bel Geddes takes Jimmy Stewart to the Argosy Book Shop to learn about the history of Carlotta.  The Argosy was inspired by the Argonaut, which used to be on California Street.

This post was too late for the blogathon, but please feel free to use the link to contribute. 

Thank you to Ferdy on Films (, The Self-Styled Siren ( and This Island Rod ( for organizing this year's blogathon.

Please consider donating to the National Film Preservation Foundation. For the Love of Film III is raising money to place The White Shadow, a 1923 Graham Cutts movie on which Alfred Hitchcock served as assistant director, on the internet for free viewing.
