Fun book that covers the westerns made in Northern Arizona is amazing detail. My mother was in Sedona back in 1949 on a dude ranch and got to see some films shooting these and meet some of the players. So it was fun to go back and figure out which movie it was. For the right fan, this is a winner.

We purchased this as a gift for a friend's birthday. It was delivered as promised, in excellant condition. Our friend was VERY pleased with the book. She used to work in Hollywood with several "personalities" and has always loved movies. Since she now lives in Sedona, it was perfect! Lots of pictures of local scenes, and orders to netflix for some "oldie treasures". All in all, wonderful!

My background is in Hollywood, and Arizona's Little Hollywood is the quintessential 'go to' book in my library of film industry books. Joe McNeil has done a remarkable job of researching and presenting every detail of films that were made in Sedona and Northern Arizona during the 1920's, 1930's, 1940's, 1950's, 1960's and early 1970's. This amazing book is a labor of love, written with a personal style that keeps you riveted from page to page. The photos alone of breathtaking scenery, familiar film stars and behind the scenes action are well worth the $44.00! All of the movies that we love to watch from Stagecoach to Johnny Guitar, to the Rounders, the Outlaw's Daughter, Pony Soldier, Angel and the Badman, Half-Breed, etc. along with dozens of forgotten films revealed for the first time in this book are meticulously revisited with fascinating details and behind the scene insights. Stars such as the Cisco Kid, John Wayne, Joan Crawford, Glenn Ford, Donna Reed, Elvis and dozens more are brought to life in these action packed pages. This book is a total treasure! I plan to buy one for my mother-in-law, a quintessential fan of Westerns - as well as friends who will love me for turning them on to such a treasure trove of behind the scene facts, information and photos of films from Hollywood's heyday of Westerns. Arizona's Little Hollywood belongs in the personal library of anyone who loves Westerns, is fascinated with Hollywood and is enthralled with the spectacular scenery and landscapes that can only be found in America's West.
Never in my life could I have ever anticipated that an author would possess the passion and love of the great Southwest as Joe McNeil to have dedicated the countless hours of research uncovering the fascinating truths of the lives of both men, women, and corporations who were instrumental in providing movie entertainment filmed in the beautiful red rocks of Sedona, If you appreciate history and if you relish movies, this book is filled to the brim with golden nuggets never exposed before. Original and fresh, Sedona Gone Hollywood is a "who dunnit, where they dunnit and why they dunnit" treasure.
