This lavishly illustrated book celebrates the first 20 years of the Lone Pine Film Festival, which offers informative tours and exclusively shows vintage films shot in the area. The sleepy California community of Lone Pine and the surrounding Alabama Hills, nestled at the foot of Mount Whitney, has been used as a location by filmmakers in hundreds of movies dating back to the silent era. Inside this publication you will find more than 100 pages of rare photographs and comprehensive studies written by noted film historians who have chronicled the filmmaking activities in Lone Pine. Featured are articles covering the rediscovered classic 1943 Republic serial "Daredevils of the West," a tribute to film festival co-founder Dave Holland, a pictorial retrospective of the first 20 festivals by noted photographer Don Kelsen, and much more. A wonderful keepsake for anyone who has or is planning to visit and enjoy the heritage of this majestic cinema location.
