About this title

Synopsis:

Ponderosa Country, a scenic and historic guide to Reno and vicinity, is a tour book about Reno and places radiating from each point of the compass. It describes things of interest to see on auto trips to the east, west, north, and south of Reno, and in Reno itself. Ponderosa Country was up-to-date in 1972 when it was published, providing a fascinating read today as one compares the region then with how it has evolved over the last 40 years. The author, Stanley W. Paher, has filled the book with a representative selection of historic and contemporary photographs and does a nice job describing what one would see on each tour. Paher's use of black and white photographs adds a distinctive flavor for today's reader of Ponderosa Country. Students of Reno and Nevada history, will find it informative and entertaining to learn what once was and did not last, and what has endured into the 21st century.

Movie Filming of " 11th Hour " at Bluff Park Rare Books on Broadway in Long Beach Finished Shooting Recently. The Entire Movie for Fox Was Shot in the Bookstore. Film Called, The 11th Hour, Had to do with Strangers meeting a Grown up Alice in Wonderland on Rainy Night in the Bookstore. My how Alice Has Changed !Filming of the Movie The Eleventh Hour aka The Journey Beneath Alice's Bed was An Original Screenplay by David Daniels . This is Foxs way of Discovering New & Upcoming Filmmakers & Actors & Camera People ETC, And it started Raining right on Cue when Filming Started ! The Filmmakers are doing this Short Film on a Relatively Small Budget , but who knows it Might Become the Next Blair Witch Project. It Will be Shown on TV's Bravo , Fox Family Channel & on the Internet ! It Turned out to be a Wonderful Experience & the Cast & Crew were Delightful. After 12 Hours or so of shooting, Around 4 A.M. each morning when filming concluded for that day , they were careful to put everything Back in its Original Place. Filming in such Cramped Quarters must have been a Challenge for the Young Filmmakers ! One of the Stars of the Film is Dead Ringer for a Rita Hayworth lookalike ! Other Characters were a Devil, Billionaire, Derelict, Etc. They also used a Lightning Machine whose Bright Light seemed to Give People Headaches & Many Wore Sunglasses During the Shoot !
