"Notes on the Port of St. Francis" (1951)
With narration provided by Vincent Price and featuring excerpts of Robert Louis Stevenson's essay on San Francisco, this movie is directed by Frank Stauffacher. Stauffacher introduced the Art in Cinema film series to the SF Museum of Art which featured a number of "city symphonies" of which this work is a logical outgrowth.
