Little Hollywood, Kanab, Utah

View Larger Map

Kanab, Utah, was named "Little Hollywood" in the 1950's by people in the movie industry who used this as a location for filming of television shows and movies. MGM built a makeshift studio outside of town in the 1940s. More Westerns were produced near Kanab than anywhere else outside of California. Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, and Ronald Reagan were among the movie stars who worked here. The Frontier Movie Town attraction in Kanab offers tours of movie sets. An interpretive sign effort has placed signs throughout the Town featuring photos and descriptions of performers who once worked here.
