"Thunder River Feud" (1942)
In the above screen shot from cinematographer Robert Cline's 1942 Range Busters masterpiece, "Thunder River Feud," the large rock formation behind the rider is Hangdog. This is the "gladiator armor" view of Hangdog, one of its more widely filmed angles.
Hangdog as it appears today, on the former Iverson Movie Ranch
The shot above shows what Hangdog looks like today, from something close to the same angle. It's located on private property in the "Above Nyoka" area of the Iverson Movie Ranch, just northeast of Nyoka Cliff.
A different "face" of Hangdog is seen above, in the Paramount Western "Albuquerque," starring Randolph Scott. This is the view from the south, more or less, and you can see Cactus Hill in the background.
Hangdog today, from still another angle
The recent shot seen above is taken from yet another angle, but it may be close enough to the "Albuquerque" screen shot above that you'll be able to spot some of the same features in the two shots.
