      Is it possible to visit Monument Valley and see the old movie sets there ?
      Or is there anything left to see in that regard. ?
      I mean in an organised way....e.g. through a travel tour company ?
      It's something I'd just love to do before I go to join the Duke and all those
      other cowpokes across the Great Divide.

      Hi Johannes.

      I have moved your post here.
      You will find this thread interesting for you.
      Some of Duke's classic westerns were made here,
      and lots of the locations can be seen here.
      There are tour companies, that offer trips,
      but I am sure our member Chilbill,
      could help you.
      Best Wishes

      Keith - thanks for relocating me with my query.
      Glad I asked the question about a possible visit to Monument Valley because I've enjoyed so much the responses. It brought me back to a time when there was highly satisfying entertainment for a few pennies.
      I just loved trawling through the replies.

      I think that it's one of the most important places,'cause it entered in the collective imagination, when we speak about western movies.By my side,the Sergio Leone's movie Once Upon a Time in The West,to give an example.

      Francesco,

      I'm amazed that nobody has answered your question! Not sure when you were planning on visiting the US, hope this is soon enough to be helpful.

      Keith (aka ethanedwards) has done an incredible job chronicling Duke's movie locations. I don't know if you've perused some of the threads, but I would personally recommend

      Duke's Movie Locations - Monument Valley - THE John Ford/John Wayne location! To be perfectly honest, I don't know where it is in relation to any national parks, but I'm sure Google maps will be a big help in that regard (as well as our many well-informed members, some of whom may even have traveled there).

      Duke's Movie Locations - Utah - plenty of westerns filmed here! And it's immediately adjacent to Arizona, where there are plenty of Duke locations, both professional (locations) and personal/business (the 26 Bar Ranch in Eagar, a ranch he owned).

      I hope that helps a little!

      Chester :newyear:
