I was surprised to see that the 1954 movie, "The Long Long Trailer," (with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz) the other night and finally recognize where that steep road near the end of the movie was.
It was the road above Lone Pine to the Mount Whitney Portal/trailhead.
I didn't even know that road was paved 55 years ago.
I knew the Alabama Hills below were in lots of Hollywood shows over the years, like the 1950s Lone Ranger, but had never recognized the Whitney Portal Road before in this Lucy movie.
I don't know what other movies over the years have used locations near or at highpoints before, but this vintage one certainly did.
