RAWHIDE and POINTS NORTH!
Friday October 5th 1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Tour: Leaves from the South Parking Lot of Museum @ 1:30 PM
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 the 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.
The tour is a Car Caravan and access to many of the movie locations are off-road and require walking over deep sand or rough terrain. It is imperative that one wear appropriate footwear, preferably hiking or trail shoes.
