Paramount Ranch- California’s Golden Parks (166)

Huell rides a horse through Paramount Ranch

Huell looks back at sixty plus years of film history when he visits the Paramount Ranch. It has posed as Tombstone, Arizona, Dodge City, Kansas and has stood in for the rolling hills of Montana and the dusty streets of Laredo. Movie-goers have been fooled into mistaking it for the Royal Gorge of Colorado, the Ozark Mountains, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Tom Sawyer’s Missouri. Producers have even passed it off as 13th century China, colonial Salem, and the island of Java.
