Old Tucson Studios: A Bucket List 'Must'

Old Tucson Studios: Mike in Tucson, AZ mortgage lender

~ Old Tucson Studios ~

There's a picture of John Wayne on a movie set in my first ever blog post on Active Rain.  It's a frame from a John Wayne western filmed right here at Old Tucson Studios.

Originally built in 1938, Old Tucson Studios has seen the likes of Bing Crosby, William Holden, Ingrid Bergman, Gene Autry, James Stewart and Ronald Regan, to name just a few.

You'll recognize some of the television series filmed here: the High Chaparral, Little House On The Prairie, and Father Murphy.  Remember Three Amigos?  Tombstone?  The Quick and the Dead? 

Click this link for a full listing of the movies shot here at Old Tucson Studios.  Not all of them were westerns!

If you're wondering what's going on today at Old Tucson, click this link to see their website.  And if you're coming to visit, give me a call.  I live about a mile away.
