Presidio, The (Paramount 1988, Sean Connery, Mark Harmon)



Mark Harmon plays a San Francisco detective investigating the murder of a female MP. His case brings him to the Presidio, a military base run by a hardheaded Lieutenant Colonel (Sean Connery), an old nemesis of the detective. Their tense working relationship is further strained when the detective falls for the Lieutenant Colonel’s sexy daughter (Meg Ryan). Intense chase scenes effectively employ the hilly San Francisco streets.

While making The Presidio, Sean Connery appeared in a cameo playing himself in the comedy Memories of Me (1988). Connery appears in the latter film wearing his military costume from this movie.
