Did You Know?
The dusty bus stop town location was Piru, adjacent to Fillmore. The Piru town's short Main Street commercial buildings were completely vacant, boarded up and unoccupied. The Art Director Mary Dodson
created all the shops, selecting a market, a Southwest Indian tourist shop, a barber shop, gas station, with necessary window and sign decoration. Mary and the decorator made the town come to life for the filming sequence. Several other exterior buildings and sidewalk locations were utilized filling out the filming schedule's use of the town site. See more
