The United States of America, Plus San Francisco

According to ABC local news in Havana San Francisco Film Commission Executive Director Stefanie Coyote "would only allow the Marine's production crew to film on California Street if there were no Marines in the picture. They wound up filming the empty street and will have to superimpose the Marines later."

The story quotes Captain Greg Corrales of the San Francisco Police Department Traffic Bureau:

"It's insulting, it's demeaning. This woman is going to insult these young heroes by just arbitrarily saying, 'no, you're not going to film any Marines on California Street.'"

What an absolute disgrace.
