Talk about a "Walk through the Past!" Spending a day in Old Tucson, the sight of many famous wild west movies made you feel what it must have been like in the olden days. From gunfights to life size photos of John Wayne, Can-Can girls preforming and all the re-creations of buildings from that era, you could almost picture what it must have been like to have lived back then and hear the echos of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Michael Landon and many other famous actors. While this continues to be the site where western movies are filmed, some of the most famous were "Tombstone," "Rio Bravo," "El Dorado," and "McLintock" as well as TV shows like "Bonanza," "High Chapperal," and "Little House on the Prairie." Much of the town burned to the ground in 1995 and was rebuilt by 1997. It was fun to walk the same streets and see inside the old hotel and saloon, schoolhouse where the Ingalls went to school the mercantile where they shopped, their "house on the prairie," the telegraph office, railroad depot, and many of the props used in both TV and the movies. The town has been nicknamed "Hollywood in the Desert" and is a must see for anyone traveling in the area. Since 1939 Old Tucson has been the site for more than 300 film and television projects Studios and continues to be one of the most active filming locations for Western-themed movies, television, cable shows and commercials in the United States.
