    This might actually be interesting. Most people I know in Goodyear, AZ have never heard of the studios. It seems to have dropped out of conciousness except for us other OTs ( Old Timers)

      yes agreed, since the fire of 95 the magic is not there
      all is not lost, the heart and sole is still there

        If Western-films come back,then it usually is the production that will build a new set. (I worked @OT in 1971, film-co. built CourtHouse and Sallon during “Joe Kidd,”  and “judge Roy Bean.”Also, OT  still has the wonderful: Mescal town-set. (Benson)  Film companies usually build most of Old Tucso,  remember??  HAPPY   TRAILS……

    Looking forward to something happening at OTS, but I really hope that they take into consideration the HEART of Old Tucson… the true spirit of the West and Westerns can life again! Let me know if I can help!!!

    I’m still mourning so many things missing from the park… it feels like pieces of myself are missing.

    go to http://www.wsj.com and read the Friday Journal in todays Wall Street journal. It discusses the Western and it’s roots. Particularly how it pertains to the upcoming Cowboys & Aliens. You can’t get away from the classics as the driver.
