The Ultimate Film Location Scout
California’s Kern River Canyon was once a backdrop in the movie “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.” And, more recently, the 1995 movie “Twister” touched down in tiny Lebec, Calif.
Facts and sites both obscure and famous star in a new movie map of California, now playing on the Internet site of the California Division of Tourism (https://gocalif.ca.gov). As of last week, the map listed sites for about 240 movies and television shows made in the last 50 years. Browsers can search by region, movie title or actor.
A spokesman said the state hopes to find a private sponsor to print the map. Meanwhile, you can download it from the Internet site.
