TO BE HELD APRIL 23
Brigham Young University film scholar Jim D’Arc will give a talk on “The Famous and Infamous Along Utah’s Highway 89 as Depicted by Hollywood” April 23 at Kanab High School.
The speech is part of an ongoing lecture series highlighting people and events that took place along the Heritage Highway.
“It is very appropriate that the talk is being held in Kanab, as that city is often described as ‘Little Hollywood’ because so many movies are made there, “said Monte Bona, a member of the Heritage Highway 89 Alliance and Sanpete County Heritage Council. The speech begins at 7 pm at the high school, located at 59 East Red Shadow Lane. The talks, which are sponsored in part by the Utah Humanities Council are free and open to the public.
D’Arc’s talk will be a continuation of a presentation he gave in Kanab in January that was part of statehood day and focused on the importance of the film industry in Kanab. The upcoming speech will look at movies filmed in Kanab, such as The Lone Ranger and Calamity Jane. and how those characters were depicted on film.
