The state of Arizona has always been a photogenic favorite for movie producers. From “Real to Reel,” see how Hollywood has affected popular views of Western settlement and continues to impact social interactions. This program runs the gamut from Tom Mix to Val Kilmer with information about the plots, players, and behind-the-scenes anecdotes about Jean Harlow, John Wayne, and Elvis in this history of Arizona-filmed movies, from silents to Cinemascope. Presented by author and historian Jim Turner.
This is an AZ Speaks program made possible by the Arizona Humanities Council.
