The History Behind The $5 Million Mansion in ‘The Last Black Man In San Francisco’
Perhaps no film in recent memory has centered so much around a house as The Last Black Man In San Francisco. The classic Victorian home is featured extensively throughout the course of the film - in many ways embodying a secondary persona of protagonist Jimmie Fails.
Details such as the color of the windowpane, the construction date, and the "witch-hat" roof become key parts of the storyline. Obtaining ownership of the home becomes a means of reclaiming Jimmie's own identity.
