Old Tucson is a famous filming site in Arizona that has been very
popular in television and films. It's comprised of a town set and
adjacent foothills that encircle it on a high plateau with lovely vistas
of the desert. Portions of twelve's "The Power of Life and Death", "Top Hand", and
"The Desperado" were filmed here. Michael Landon would later film segments of "Little House On The Prairie", "Father Murphy", and "Highway To Heaven" here.
