Finding Movie History...

We're staying at Snow Canyon campground in Utah and while watching one of our favorite movies, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, we realized we were hiking in the scenes where Butch and Sundance were running away from the posse. If the weather was more accommodating, I could have done a back flop into the sandstone pool myself! See for yourself...

Just up the road from you in Hurricane, you can find the house and grounds where the bicycle scene was filmed. Ask a local.

One of the best movie scenes, EVER.

I have a picture of Doug, taken out west somewhere .....next to a bronze statue of Butch Cassidy.

He loved that movie.

Jim, thanks for the heads up - we'll check that out. That sequence shows what a coordinated guy Paul Newman was. I've always admired the cinematographer for his camera work through the slats of wood making it appear to be a flickering old movie.

Hi Maggie! Was the statue Doug was standing next to the real Butch or Newman's? I'd like to see that. Wasn't the real Butch from somewhere in Utah? I love that movie too. It's totally a guy's movie where almost any guy can recite at least a few lines from it. The park manager said a lot of scenes from Jeremiah Johnson were also filmed at Snow Canyon too so I'll have to try and find those for another home-made "re-creation."

Filmed in Grafton, just outside of Rockville and the entrance to Zion.

Those are great pictures! Butch Cassidy was from Circleville (which hasn't changed much in 100 years), north of Panguitch on US 89, which is near Bryce Canyon. You can do a circle that way up to Capitol Reef. The old Robbers' Roost (and) Spring, east of Hanksville, is still running, but the roads in that area (near the approach to the Maze District of Canyonlands N.P.) are not good for pulling trailers. You would have to walk into the Spring at any rate. It's quite the perfect area for what was Butch's favorite hide-out.

I don't remember, exactly, but I think the real Butch Cassidy. I'll look for it.

Jeremiah Johnson is a favorite movie of mine, seen it several times.

Much of The Electric Horseman was filmed in and around Zion as well. There used to be a bar on south side of the highway in the crossroads of Virgin, on the way to Springdale (and the main entrance to the Park) that the cast and crew would "water" in after a long day's filming. Local legend has it that Willie Nelson did a bit of jamming there at the time.

The last I knew, Grafton (ghost town) near Zion NP is private property and visitors are barred from it, but I think it can still be glimpsed in places from the highway.

A lot of old westerns were filmed in and around Kanab, Utah.... and then, there's always Monument Valley. (Anyone else seen the Xarelto (drug) commercial on TV, with the AS driving through it?)
