Tour_NorthSouthThe North South Tour is considered one of the most scenic drives, you'll see LOTS of the Alabama Hills. The tour travels throughout the length of the Alabama Hills to famous filming locations of such movies as Gunga Din, Westward Ho, and Wagons Westward. You will visit famous locations on this combination of two original festival tours created by Festival Founder Dave Holland.  


View the Hoppy cabin where the Boyds honeymooned.  Stand where Gene Autry, John Wayne and Tom Mix worked.  Walk to the Lone Ranger ambush site then through the canyon to Hoppy and Gene Autry rocks. View the Rawhide film location where two people played one part. See the actual cement anchors that held the Gunga Din bridge; the monuments dedicated by Douglas Fairbanks Jr. and Roy Rogers.  Grab your cameras and join us on this tour for your thorough introductory view or great refresher to all the filmmaking celebrated by our festival.

About Melody Holland-Ogburn...
Joining us again, Melody is the daughter of festival cofounder Dave Holland. Having led guests on bus tours as a step-on guide since the first year, she notes first-time attendees on at least one of her tours each weekend. “Every year brings great, new experiences through these movie location tours. I treasure seeing people meet and share memories with old friends. Others make new friends. And they’re all enjoying the area. It’s a unique festival!”
