What Is The Top Ranked Movie Filmed In “Old West” Montana?
Montana sets the stage for some of the greatest movies of all time. One of those is the popular movie starring Brad Pitt, A River Runs Through It.
As much love as A River Runs Through It has, it is surprisingly NOT the highest-rated movie in Montana.
What is the highest-rated movie in Montana?
I'm guessing the younger generation has never seen or even heard of the movie, Lonesome Dove let alone the sequel, Return To Lonesome Dove (a mini-series).
Lonesome Dove was made in 1989 and has since been recognized as one of the best western movies of all time. This original was filmed mostly throughout Texas.
The Return To Lonesome Dove, on the other hand, was filmed throughout many different parts of Montana including, Butte, Virginia City, Ennis, and Billings in 1993. Maybe you will recognize some of the scenes as your hometown. Do you want to see what "old Montana" looked like? Here you go!
If you are a lover of books, the Lonesome Dove series is one of the greatest. You will laugh, cry, and get a feel for what it was really like on the ranches of Montana in the turn of a page.
With some of the best actors and actresses in Hollywood playing roles throughout the series, you will not only fall in love with the movie but also the magnificently written soundtrack.
I hope you enjoy this movie series as much as I did growing up.
