The Mean Streets

So a few months ago, I was surfing among the cable channels, and came across McQ, a John Sturges film starring John Wayne and the Ingram MAC-10 submachine pistol. Wayne is McQ, a cop so tough he doesn't have any vowels in his last name, who fights drug dealers and corrupt cops. In Seattle. Yeah, Seattle.

And the part I caught involved a chase scene shot in Seattle, which had a lot of locations recognizable even 30+ years later. I've driven on these streets, though not at these speeds. And I wondered if someone would kindly go through the chase scene and identify all the locations.

And the Internet, in its wisdom, has done just that. Here it is, courtesy of SLOG.

More later,
