Here's what the Iverson Movie Ranch obsession is all about ...

For an introduction to this blog and to the obsession a growing number of vintage film and TV fans have with the Iverson Movie Ranch — the most widely filmed outdoor location in movie and TV history — please read the site's introductory post, found here.
• Here's a link to Garden of the Gods, the best-known section of the Iverson Movie Ranch (featured in the movie "Stagecoach," the "Lone Ranger" TV show and hundreds of other productions).
• To find other rock features or look up movie titles, TV shows, actors and production people, see the "labels" section — the long alphabetical listing on the right side of the page, below
• To go right to the great Iverson cinematographers, click here.
• I've also begun a YouTube channel for Iverson Movie Ranch clips and other movie location videos, which you can get to by clicking here.
• If you know of a way I can set up this blog so readers can subscribe to receive future posts via email, please let me know. In the meantime there's a link all the way at the bottom of this page that says "Subscribe to: Posts (Atom)," and if you're inclined to try it, it seems to take you into a world of customizable home pages or something, and you can have blog updates as a part of that page ... whether this is useful to you, who knows, but I thought I'd let you know it's there.

Chewbacca strikes me as eerily similar to the "Star Wars" character. A few of the people I've shown the photo to say they don't see it. Let me know if you have an opinion one way or the other. I also see a little bit of Jabba the Hutt in the figure to the left of Chewy, but that's beside the point.

I see Chewbacca! Hey D, glad you're still around. Lisa

I used to climb that rock as a teenager. My family built one of the estates at the Iverson Movie Ranch. Before all of the subdivision was sold off, the developer (Eugene Kilmer; Val Kilmer's father) held a party with oddly assembled movie memorabilia, little of which had much to do with the movie ranch. As a kid, it was amazing. On retrospect, it was bizarre.
