wild harvest movie filmed partly on ranch at Cantua Creek, Calif
2 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

part of this movie was filmed on the vista del llano ranch at Cantua Creek , California .i lived there with my family, i was a small child at the time . my dad came home one day to get me and my brothers and sisters . he took us across a small ditch that ran through the camp to meet the famous Alan ladd . the film crew and stars were having lunch at the time Alan did not stand up but was courteous to a hand full of poor little farm kids and shook our hands and patted us on the head. we did have wheat on the ranch. my dad was a mechanic at the time and worked on harvesters . he was seen once in the movie driving a machine. i had the movie a couple of years ago , someone borrowed it and don't know if he still has it . not a great movie but watchable
