Forged from glaciers and sacred to Native Americans, the mountains, boulders, and rocks of the Alabama Hills mirror landscapes found all over the world. A scenic three-hour drive from the Hollywood sign, this location would prove to serve as the place to make movies. Early Hollywood studios sent location scouts to the area after hearing stories shared by travelers, and the rest is movie history. Over 500 films have completed shooting here, including silents, A movies, B Westerns, serials, sci-fi, film noir, television shows, and commercials. Tom Mix, Errol Flynn, John Wayne, William Boyd, Clayton Moore, Lucille Ball, Roy Rogers, Natalie Wood, Humphrey Bogart, Steve McQueen, Russell Crowe, Jamie Foxx, and many more have all scrambled amongst the terrain in the Alabama Hills.

1940's. I had never heard of this filming location but decided to order the book. I am so glad that I did! The Alabama Hills has been used for filming from the silent era through now. The photographs were absolutely stunning, and have really led me to become even more interested in some of the early film actors that I had not previously discovered. The book also provides some fascinating information about the locations, movies, and background information on the productions. I really enjoyed the personal photographs and experiences from the author. Well worth the read!
