Trip Across America ~ January 2016
Old Tucson Studios came to life in 1939 when Colombia Pictures began building a replica of 1860 Tucson for its epic motion picture Arizona staring Jean Arthur and William Holden. Over 350,000 adobe bricks were made to construct this dusty town. Since that time, Old Tucson has been host to many films and television productions.
Film enthusiasts and history buffs alike can appreciate the authenticity of the old west setting of Old Tcson Studios. The magic of Hollywood has brought great excitement to these dusty streets and with each production the studio has grown. Through the lens of a camera, Old Tucson has played a prominent role in shaping the world’s perception of the old west, an unforgetable era in the history of America.
As you walk through the gates and listen, you can hear the echoes of cowboys spurs jingling down the boardwalk. If you ever go then be perpared to step back in time and experience the charm and history of this famous movie location.
