Movies filmed in Sedona, Arizona..


My favorite place to visit is Sedona. Best known for its beautiful red sandstone formations, the Red Rocks of Sedona. The formations appear to glow in brilliant orange and red when illuminated by the rising or setting sun. The Red Rocks form a breathtaking backdrop for film makers.

Sedona is named after Sedona Miller Schnebly (1877–1950), the wife of the city's first postmaster, who was loved for her hospitality.

Loved seeing Sedona's sublime natural wonders today, for the first time. Should we be keeping it secret to avoid tourist overload? Seeing the film list, now I realize I'd have liked also to be listening to the sound track of Dead Man for some of that time.
