Critic Reviews for The San Francisco Story

All Critics (1)

The plot and characters are awfully hackneyed, but director Robert Parrish has crisply and graphically put on film a story about crooked politics and violence in the California of a century ago.

Audience Reviews for The San Francisco Story


Absolutely ordinary western with Yvonne beautiful but arch and Joel seemingly sleepwalking through the picture.
