"Movie Road Touring Guide." Take a drive through the Alabama Hills, CA and visit historical movie locations, including a 1920 silent western starring Fatty Arbuckle and the 1962 epic "How the West was Won." You can download a PDF file of the guide. ... ochure.pdf

Also you may be interested in the 22nd Lone Pine Film Festival is set this year for Oct. 7-9.

Thanks Jim_b for sharing.

I deeply regret that I've only climb Mt. Whitney 27 times.

A real hero (in my mind) of that area is Doug Thompson of the Mt. Whitney Store. Worthy of a story sometime.
