Title: Request: exact leone locations in Monument Valley
Post by: Shadow on October 19, 2014, 02:38:58 PM
I would think my question has been answered before, but I have a hard time finding the answer anyway.
Three years ago I was in Monument Valley and I did find the Arch, so that is covered. But now I'm looking for the shots from Jills journey to sweetwater by carriage. As well as the spot of the  "bar in the middle on nowhere" where harmonica and cheyenne first meet. Any (driving) directions, gps coordinates etc are much welcomed. I will be visiting MV in summer next year and while I have my family in tow, I don't have too much time to search...... :)

Thanks!

The carriage ride begins  where the "road" around the valley starts from, as you enter the National Park. Its a dirt track (or at least it was 10 years ago) but people can drive around in their BMWs and Winnebagos. You can also take a Navajo guided truck-ride, which will take you past the main formations (two sisters, totem pole, john ford point) all of which feature in the carriage ride. I did post some photo comparisons on here many years ago, not sure where they are now. The "bar" is no longer there, just some bricks and pieces of wood. Look for Herve Attia's "now and then" videos on Youtube. The guy's a master!

My guess is that if you go to Goulding's Lodge, the people there will know the locations (at least of the Ford films; maybe not the Leone films). But just a guess :)

People don't know about OUATITW there. I went there, asked them, nobody knows that film existed. Even those who know about the arch think it's some ancien stuff.
They know about the Ford films though.

That is true.  And not one book at Gouldings (of the many there, I looked through them all, and listings in the backs) of Monument Valley films even lists Once Upon a Time in the West.
