Lone Pine in the Movies: 2009 Edition
This 106-page journal was produced by Blood ‘n’ Thunder editor-publisher Ed Hulse for sale at the 2009 Lone Pine Film Festival. The sleepy California community of Lone Pine and its nearby Alabama Hills, nestled at the foot of Mount Whitney in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, have been used for location shooting by filmmakers in hundreds of movies dating back to the silent era. Most often seen in Westerns, the area has also represented India, Tibet, China, Afghanistan, the Andes, the Moon, and even Mars.
As the Lone Pine Film Festival shows only those movies shot in the area, the journal has the same focus. The 2009 issue has extensively researched, profusely illustrated articles on favorite Lone Pine films and the people who made them. There are career studies of Western star Audie Murphy and director Robert F. Hill, along with detailed behind-the-scenes accounts of the making of Hopalong Cassidy (1935), Gunga Din (1939), Daredevils of the West (1943), and The Hitch-hiker (1953). Also included are reviews of Lone Pine Westerns starring John Wayne, Randolph Scott, Gene Autry, and Ken Maynard. Plus there are two features celebrating the Festival’s 20th anniversary: a tribute to the event’s founder, Dave Holland, and a photo retrospective of the first 20 Festivals, with rare candid shots of such popular Festival guests as Gregory Peck, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and others.
