The California Zephyr (CZ) comes to the big screen! The second Cinerama movie ever filmed, featured two married couples, the Marsh’s from the U.S. and the Troller’s from Switzerland, who “traded continents” to take a Cinerama Holiday.
For the purposes of this review, I will concentrate on the “San Francisco Bay” segment of the movie which follows the Troller’s, (Fred and Beatrice), from The City By The Bay eastward aboard the California Zephyr.
For some reason, the movie titles are in B&W – once the feature starts, it’s all glorious Technicolor.
Surprise! Also featured in the San Francisco segment is a tour of the city’s fabled cable car railway. Here we see a car being turned at the intersection of Powell and Market.
For comparison, here is a June 2017 Google Maps view of the same location:
