Kezar Stadium

***

De Georgio:   “You need any help Harry?”

Harry:   “Go on out and get some air, fatso.”

Scorpio:   “Please. No more! I’m hurt. Can’t you see I’m hurt? You shot me. Please don’t don’t. Let me have a doctor. Let me have a doctor. Please give me the doctor. Don’t kill me!”

Harry:   “The girl, where is she?”

Scorpio:   “You tried to kill me.”

Harry:   “If I tried that your head would be splattered all over this field. Now, where’s the girl?”

Scorpio:   “I want a lawyer.”

Harry:   “I said where’s the girl?”

Scorpio:   “I have the right to a laywer.

Harry:   “Where’s the girl?”

After a tip off from the doctor at Park Emergency Hospital on Stanyan Street, Harry and De Georgio cross the car park from Park Emergency to Kezar Stadium. At Kezar Stadium it was Scorpio’s turn to be hunted.

At Mt Davidson it was Harry who lay at the foot of a cross, but at Kezar Stadium, it was Scorpio who stretched out his arms and begged for mercy by a cross of a different kind.

In 2009, the Kezar Stadium of 1971, is gone, demolished in 1989 (Source), but a facility with lesser capacity was rebuilt at the same location with the same name. The track layout is exactly the same so the field appears identical to what was in the movie even though it’s a rebuilt field. Kezar Stadium is a 2 minute walk from the Park Emergency Hospital building on Stanyan Street.

    “I think the groundskeeper lets him live there.” I have always wondered how the hell the emergency room Dr. would know that?

    To lg … it might be, and I said might be … because when he tried to kill Harry and Gonzales he was wearing the orange ski mask. They didn’t really see him. He didn’t pull the mask off until he was alone in the woods and pulled the knife out of his leg. Just a thought..
