We take a tour of Lone Pine and the surrounding areas with Bob as our tour guide. Over 400 movies, many classics and many many more forgettable B westerns, have been filmed in and around Lone Pine.
Here are some links to things we talk about in the episode:
"Location Filming in the Alabama Hills (Images of America)" published by Arcadia Publishing

"On Location In Lone Pine" written by David Holland
"The Bamboo Saucer" on YouTube

"Real West to Reel West" on YouTube (the opening to this episode is from this video)
"Lone Pine Film History Museum" by Movieguide (the closing to this episode is from this video)
And Bob and I try to stick to movie in our podcast and sometimes we get a bit political. If you want to read more on the article I mention in the after-show, here it is. "The dangerous economics of racial resentment during World War II" on Quartz.com written by Gwynn Guilford
Up next... "Gunga Din", the biggest production ever in the Lone Pine area with over 900 crew.
Here are some photos from Bob's trip.
