    1. We are fortunate to have so many yummy options…and with their own distinct vibe, design and dishes. Looks like this one is exterior solely- offers motif shorthand for pizza joint, maybe chain. Sometimes location is location – cost efficient for production when bundling shot lists. Will be interesting to see how/if it makes the cut. Thanks for question, google gal!


  1. Thanks for sharing this interesting post and responses evokes so memories also remember this one filmed that way in Ma: The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! (1966)

    I remember meeting this actor in 1968 (John Philip Law with others) me and my brothers walking along a dirt country road through Carson Nation Forest El Rito on way back from school then. Those movies stars without being bothered many other movies stars who escaped West New Mexico 1968 get a way from the grid, big commune movements during those years west Colorado Drop City, NM La Madeira, Taos Area, Santa Fe , AZ, etc.

    We walking a country road in Carson National Forrest and two 1960 vehicles with actors all together out viewing the state and preparing to film a movie location spotting (Easy Rider 1969- Yes Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, Jack Nicholson, Luke Askew, Karen Black, Dennis Hopper. (Whom moved to Taos). Seems a lot of actors moved that way to escape the big city life. Even Bob Denver (Gilligan’s Island wife Maggie Denver lived in El Rito for a short time).

    Most of the actors were very down to earth of course not bother them too much vacation time for them away from the big cities and CA or back East.

    Never know who you may run into these days 🙂

    🙂 Dave & Kim 🙂
