Old Tucson Movie Studios   - Tänupühade Arizona-tripil veetsime seal vahvalt aega. Pauli isa Joe ja ta proua, õde Karen ja noorim vend Doug peredega.

 /.../ "When the world-famous Old Tucson Movie Studio was set ablaze by arson in 1995, the backdrop for some of Hollywood's greatest movies went up in smoke. Favorites films such as Rio Bravo, Gunfight at the OK Corral, The Three Amigos , and more recently, Tombstone with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer, were filmed there. The television series High Chaparral made its home at Old Tucson, as well as episodes of Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, and countless TV commercials. Without our even being aware of it, most of us have been screen-visitors to this now historic landmark many times. If you have seen a John Wayne movie, you have probably been to Old Tucson.

Built in 1939 for the movie Arizona, the studio was opened to the public in 1960. It soon grew into a park where visitors could not only get a taste of the Old West, but could learn how movies were made and see props and visit locations that would evoke fond memories of some of their favorite western stars and movies. But when fire swept through the park in 1995, it was a challenge to restore what was priceless to movie buffs around the world. Old Tucson responded to that challenge and 18 months after the devastating blaze that destroyed nearly 40% of the buildings, the park reopened.

Now, Old Tucson is again alive and kicking, rebuilt with a new philosophy and direction. The famous soundstage and the 10,000 square-foot wardrobe and prop collections are sadly gone forever, but there is a new Old Tucson and it is well worth the visit."/.../
