Synopsis: Having played host to more than 60 Hollywood productions from the early years of cinema through the 1970s Sedona, Arizona’s impact on the film industry is revealed here for the first time.

Attractive photographic endpapers. Arizona's Little Hollywood. That was the nickname Sedona gave itself in the 1940s and early 1950s. And why not? On screen, the Arizona town's stunning natural wonders were visual shorthand for the American West, as iconic in western movies as the buttes of Monument Valley. And yet, despite the cute moniker, viewers-and reviewers-generally had no clue that they were looking at the same locations in film after film. Sedona sits about 120 miles north of Phoenix, nestled between thousand-foot- high walls f tone in lushly forested Oak Creek Canyon and the wide open space of the Verde Valley, and it was the diversity of this unspoiled landscape that made it such an ideal location to shoot outdoor scenes of movies. Stretching as far back as 1923, Sedona's signature red rocks were a fixture in major Hollywood productions- including enduring favorites such as Johnny Guitar, Angel and the Badman, Leave Her to Heaven, Blood on the Moon, and 3:10 to Yuma -- but typically were identified to audiences as the terrain of Texas, California, Nevada, and even Canadian border territory. For fifty years, this picturesque desert outpost quietly played host to Hollywood legends in the making, yet the town is nowhere to be found in standard histories of the movies. Sedona's tale offers nothing less than a time line of history -- of moviemaking in America and the popular (and sometimes not-so-popular) culture of the years that shaped it. The story begins in the silent era, when Zane Grey's The Call of the Canyon and Kit Carson, with Joseph P. Kennedy's doomed movie superstar Fred Thomson, were filmed in the Oak Creek Canyon area just outside Sedona proper. The 1930s saw the arrival of a dozen B westerns, including four visits from silent film idol turned talkie cowboy star George O'Brien and the only Hopalong Cassidy film ever shot outside California. The decade also saw Sedona cast in her most historically significant -- and least known-movie role, as the promised land of milk and honey in Der Kaiser von Kalifornien, a Nazi western designed to validate Adolf Hitler's schemes of territorial expansion to the people of Germany. This book tells the almost forgotten story of Sedona. Contents in Six Chapters: The 1920s, The 1930s, The 1940s, The 1950s, The 1960s, and The 1970s.
