Filmed in Wichita, Kansas:
Parts of "Tombstone", "Little House on the Prairie", "Sarah, Plain and Tall", "C.S.A.", and a whole host of movies and made for TV Old West movies - One of our museums is a 100 acre collection of Old West buildings and an adjacent 19th century farm called "Cowtown". It's a popular site for filming westerns and documentaries, the last of which was by an old friend of mine from WSU. I met Christopher Walken while he was in town for the filming of a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, entirely by accident. There's usually an ad in the paper about every other month for auditions for extras.
"Darkness" - a horror flick entirely filmed in Wichita, written, edited, and directed by my wife's High School boyfriend, Leif Jonker. Besides being a horror film director, writer, and special effects creator (his stuff on "Surface" was awesome), Leif's also a Mego fan.
"Mars Attacks" - the retirement home that gets trashed in the film is up on the north end of town. Leif worked on Tim Burton's crew though I didn't actually know him at the time. It was pretty awesome to see filming, and not just because I ditched out of a few classes at nearby WSU to do it.
"King Kung Fu" - a cult film about King Kong and Kung Fu, filmed entirely in Wichita.
