RawhideLobbyCard72dpi

Come celebrate one of Lone Pine’s signature films! Released in 1951, Rawhide was filmed entirely in the Alabama Hills. The tour will head north on Movie Road where you’ll see the location of the stagecoach stop, the house and barn, the gate, the water tower; all built in the area where most of the movie was filmed. Did you know that two people played one part in this movie?!

Continuing north you’ll see an Audie Murphy location from Showdown, the “bombing area” from the opening scenes of Ironman, the steep road where both theIron man Jericho Missile Site 72 dpi followers walked when entering the Salt Lake valley in Brigham Young and where those opening fight scenes took place in King of the Khyber Rifles.   We’ll stop to see the garrison are from King of the Khyber Rifles at the same location where Nancy Gates appeared in Comanche Station and where they burned Josh’s ranch in The Violent Men. 

Heading around east back to Hwy. 395, you’ll look down on another Brigham Young location and over at the Alabama Gates of the aqueduct.

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.

Tremors DVDTremors TownLone 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 have a core of unique residents.Violent Road

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.

Camels

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.

Tremmors GifAbout Your Tour Guides: Donna & Burt Yost: Returning from a ski trip, Columbus Day weekend 1990, Burt and Donna Yost discovered Lone Pine and as it happens, the Lone Pine Film Festival. Fans of old westerns, Burt and Donna soon started making trips to Lone Pine and the Alabama's in search of their favorite movie locations. That led to a meeting with Film Festival founder, Kerry Powell, and Director, Dave Holland with whom they became fast friends.

Since then, Burt and Donna have developed many additional friends in Lone Pine and have become well versed in the Alabama’s and Eastern Sierra landscape and respective movie locations. Their annual festival tours are always a sell-out, especially the “Back Lot” tour featured above.Burt & Donna are long time Santa Barbara residents.

Hell Bent Lobby Card

For the 2018 festival the Audie tour has been revamped to include new locations. We will re-trace the steps of America's war hero Audie Murphy as we take you to where he made three of his most interesting movies, Hell Bent for Leather (1959), Posse from Hell (1960), and Showdown (1962). Murphy was a better actor than he gave himself credit for and was involved in some production planning such as location spotting. Warren and Ross will show you not only sites from the films but also where some of these movies' most thrilling stunts were performed. The tour will incorporate some "Audie audio". Please also note that the tour will involve some uphill walking.Posse From Hell Lobbby Card

Prior to the first 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, Posse from Hell and Showdown. They will also show clips from other film locations that will be sighted on the tour.

Please note that there is only one presentation for the two tours. The presentation and the tour are very closely linked so Warren and Ross believe that you will find the tour more rewarding if you attend this presentation.

Ross and Warren 72 dpiAbout Your Tour Guides: The call of the Alabama Hills has lured Warren Davey and Ross Schnioffsly back to Lone Pine. They have been rootin'-tootin', but very little shootin' lounge chair cowboys since Walt Disney dusted off Davy Crockett's old coonskin cap. Ross and Warren live just west of Lone Pine in the little frontier town of Melbourne, Australia. TV westerns arrived in Australia in 1956 and they have loved them ever since. Despite spending most of their working life in all forms of education from elementary schools to universities, Warren and Ross have held on to their sanity, barely! Ross, who loves making little docos on cinema history, was a research librarian at La Trobe University, Melbourne and Warren, who loves reading about all things western, is a retired elementary school librarian and both happily maintain disorganized lives. Ross and Warren will deliver a presentation on Audie Murphy followed by an updated location tour.
