In 1959, Jack Nicholson filed a movie called “The Wild Ride” in parts of Clayton, Concord, Martinez, Walnut Creek & Pleasant Hill.
Check out the screenshots from the film (above) for some very recognizable views from around Contra Costa County in 1959!
Also, you can watch a 9-minute clip from the movie, which is also located above, just under the pictures.
Thanks to Lisa for the screenshots and thanks to “J” for the video!
