Damn, it was my favorite scene too. One thing I could never figure out. The owner of the drugstore rings up the cost for the radio (and bottle of aspirin), which I punched into an inflation calculator and the radio would cost something like $250 in today's money! It didn't seem possible but maybe transistor radios were expensive back then?
oh...i'm in san fran airport now and have always wanted to find where that penultimate scene was shot. alas...SFO has been extensively renovated also
Daniel:A clock radio like the once shown could have cost that much. Keep in mind the drugstore probably had inflated prices since it was located in a hotel.Airports, along with contemporary hotels, remodel every decade or so to keep up to date with the latest trends and technology.
I don't want to go into the drugstore. I don't like the drugstore.
