  1. Kay, your blog is so interesting! I am a new Coloradan and this ups the pride in my new state quotient. You said True Grit twice. Did you mean the sequel, Rooster Cogburn? Your list makes me want to travel to these places too!

  2. I've heard of half the films on your list. Happy TT.

  3. What about "The Shining"? Wasn't that filmed somewhere in CO?

  4. You inspired me to do the same.. I think its really interesting!

  5. I have seen the last three on your list. All great films.

  6. Oops, Robbie. No, I didn't mean Rooster Cogburn. I just messed up!

    Jen, the made-for-TV version of The Shining was filmed at the Stanley hotel in Estes Park. The book was written there about that hotel but the original movie wasn't filmed there. It may have been filmed in CO, but I don't think so.

  7. Remember that science fiction film we were in as extras? When we walked sadly and dejected along the road up towards Red Canyon. I can't remember the name but it was meant to be a serious sci fi and turned out to be so bad it became a spoof.


I love to hear your thoughts!
