Description - Old Tucson Studios by Paul J Lawton

In 1939, Columbia Pictures based a film on Clarence Kelland s book Arizona, set during the Civil War in Arizona Territory. To accurately portray the novel s landscape, Columbia selected a spot about 10 miles from what is now downtown Tucson in the middle of a large Pima County park for the filming. In 1959, Bob Shelton, a Kansas City developer, purchased the lot, determined to build an active movie studio and tourist attraction. His vision was successful, and Old Tucson Studios has set the stage for over 200 movies and television shows. As Western movies regain their popularity in the box office, the future looks bright for Old Tucson Studios to become a premier filming site in Arizona."
