SCV In the Movies | Episode 74: Legion of Missing Men (1937)
Bill & EJ are excited to show what is likely the first SCV In The Movies war picture! (At over 70 episodes, we’ve kind of lost track ourselves!) Shot at our own Vasquez Rocks in 1937 is “Legion of Missing Men”, where filmdom’s ubiquitous and immediately recognizable rocks stand in for the Atlas Mountains of Morocco! The production manager of our flick is Scott Dunlap, maker of many films (mostly westerns) shot in the Santa Clarita Valley!
