This article is not directly LVC related, but fans of Sergio Leone and Spaghetti Westerns will instantly recognize the above image... the remains of the arch from Once Upon a Time in the West.
During a recent trip to Monument Valley, I was able to track down the precise area and visit this fantastic location.
Released in 1968, the majority of the film was shot in Spain, but 2 key scenes were shot in the US, as Leone wanted to use historic Monument Valley as a backdrop.
1968 vs 2013
The truck/dolly tracks from the tracking shot are still in place.
Coming over the horizon just as Frank (Henry Fonda) did.
I had to bring a harmonica!
While the majority of the arch is gone, it is still an impresive size!
