John Wayne & His Sedona Connection
Once Wayne promised to make the film in Sedona, the Sedona Lodge went under construction to meet the schedule of the movie. Next door the studio built the Sedona Sound Stage in case of bad weather during filming. In Grasshopper Flat, a location was found for a western town movie set. For its first use in films, it was outfitted with Sedona’s only train rails.
