TOUR - ARCHES OF THE ALABAMAS
Tour Guide - Page Williams

8:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Most people would agree that the Alabama Hills exhibit an extraordinary beauty with its unique rock formations, stunning skylines, and the backdrop of the majestic High Sierra mountain range. It is no wonder that the film industry has repeatedly chosen this area as a location for so many movies. However, hidden within the rocks, there is another, often overlooked, natural treasure, the arches of the Alabama Hills. There are reportedly over 300 of these geologic structures in the area and they range in size from just inches to over twenty feet in length. This driving and walking tour will include three of the area’s best arches as well as short hikes through a couple of areas where there are a concentration of these features. Please note you will be walking a total area of over two miles on rough terrain. Be sure to bring cameras, binoculars, water, and wear comfortable and appropriate hiking shoes. Warning: Hunting for arches can be addictive!

Prior to the location tour Ross and Warren will present an overview of the life, times, and heroics in real life on and off the screen of America’s Great War hero - Audie Murphy. The presentation will use images, film clips and music to showcase the many aspects of a very interesting man. Warren and Ross will focus on the three films that Audie made in the Lone Pine area. This includes; Hell Bent for Leather (1959), Posse from Hell (1960), and Showdown (1962). They will also show clips from other film locations that will be sighted on the tour.


THE LONE PINE BACK LOT TOUR (Car Caravan)
Donna & Burt Yost
9:00 AM – 11:00 AM


The Lone Pine Back Lot Tour will visit locations seldom seen by our visitors. A must tour for movie buffs, the locations will bring silver screen memories from some of Western Hollywood’s finest – Tim Holt, Robert Mitchum, Tom Mix and Ken Maynard to name a few.

We will travel up through the rocky bluffs of Tuttle Creek and “Tremors Pass” for a rare visit to the Tim Holt cabin and an exclusive opportunity to take a “picture stop” at the location of the Hoppy Cabin, once owned by the Boyd’s. Formed in the 1872 earthquake, Diaz Lake, attracted many of the film companies. Today the location is a County Camp ground and one of busiest outdoor recreation areas in Lone Pine.  In 1927, a movie was shot in these locations, many believe the first movie in which a father and son played a father and son. Can you name the actors?  The Back Lot tour ends at Anchor Ranch and at the location called the Hacienda? Can you name some of the stars who walked this set?


PRESENTATION + TOUR (Car Caravan)
HOPALONG CASSIDY

Museum Theater with Dick Bann
Friday 9:45 AM – 11:30 AM - Admission by Festival Button Only
FOLLOWED BY HOPALONG CASSIDY TOUR (Car Caravan) 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM


Lone Pine’s future looks brightest when honoring its storied past. So let’s jump on the time machine and visit the still-working cattle ranch which served as the Bar 20 in the first and best Hopalong Cassidy feature film, made in 1935. Come and see the historic and beautiful Lubken Ranch. Incredibly, the many Western film location books have all ignored it, because until 2011 its movie history was unknown – even at our own festival. We begin in the museum theater with a video compilation of Western excerpts shot at this pastoral venue covering the period from 1926 through 1949.

Then travel via car caravan to tour the grounds of the Lubken spread. There we will search for the ghosts of cowboy heroes: Gene Autry, Randolph Scott, Bob Steele, Tim Holt and many more – even a Bonanza episode was filmed here!  Some walking is required as we trace the footsteps of screen legends through this rare oasis of green in Lone Pine. Tour guide is author and film historian Richard W. Bann. Come re-live magic movie moments, and make new memories too.


ARCHES OF THE ALABAMAS TOUR (Car Caravan)

Admission by Festival Button Only

Cheyenne Social Club

Starring: James Stewart, Henry Fonda and Shirley Jones

When an aging cowboy arrives in Cheyenne with his best friend he finds, to his embarrassment, that the successful business he has inherited from his brother is actually a house of prostitution.

Following the screening, Host Ben Mankiewicz will lead a discussion with author Scott Eyman about the film and its two stars, who are the subject of his new book, Hank and Jim: The Fifty-Year Friendship of Henry Fonda and James Stewart. Eyman is a frequent book reviewer for The Wall Street Journal. He has written over a dozen books about the Golden Age of Hollywood, including what most consider the definitive biographies of both John Wayne and John Ford.

For Hank and Jim, Eyman spoke with Fonda’s widow and children as well as three of Stewart’s children. He interviewed actors and directors who had worked with both men and did extensive archival research to get the full details of their time together. This is not just another Hollywood story, but a fascinating portrait of an extraordinary friendship that lasted through war, marriages, children, careers, and everything else life threw at them.

MOVIES EAST OF LONE PINE TOUR (Car Caravan Tour)
DONNA & BURT YOST
9:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Lone Pine is more than the Eastern Sierra and the Alabama Hills; it is the Gateway to Death Valley. Across from our legendary Alabama’s is the Inyo Mountains, a 20 mile distance between peaks, and home to its own unique and isolated landscape including abandoned mining towns and towns that appear abandoned today but having unique residents.

Hollywood studios found an easy contrast to the west side view in desert, dry mountains and long dry views. East of Lone Pine housed famous trains depots like Owenyo, Keeler and Lone Pine, the station featured in the classic film Bad Day at Black Rock.

The varied films that filmed here and array of Hollywood actors and actresses that worked the “East Side” will impress you.

The Yost’s will make cinematic magic. You will stand in the desert, but thru viewing large format screen shots of famous scenes the Yost’s will transport you to another time and space.

Water hole # 3 (1935) starring James Coburn set the “Code of the West” of East Lone Pine: Do unto others …do unto others before they do onto you!”
