Stars like John Wayne, Sterling Hayden, Robert Young, Dick Powell, and Joan Crawford came to Sedona to make movies. One of the favored location was near Coffee Pot Rock. In 1945 a small frontier town set was constructed near the site by Republic Pictures for use in “Angel and the Badman.” This set was used in several later films, but was torn down to make room for a residential subdivision called Sedona West, where names of movies are recorded in the street names, such a Pony Soldier Road, Flaming Arrow Way, Johnny Guitar and Last Wagon Drive, leaving a lasting legacy of this unusual period in Sedona History.
