Las Vegas, New Mexico - America's Oldest Film Location
Interesting video on the original Las Vegas, the location for an amazing number of feature films, including RED DAWN and NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.

Cool Rich,

I was thinking of LV tonight. Speaking of No Country for Old Men, I drove by the old service station where the badazz dude keeps saying "call it!" to the service station guy. It is just west of Trujillo on Hwy 104.

Lot's of cool stuff around there. Sadly, the treasure trove of architecture seems to be largely because the place has never had much economic growth. Splendid setting though, and nice people.

We have visited Las Vegas several times in the past, while driving to Colorado on business. We live about 110 miles away, so day trips are possible, so we plan to visit more often.

I really enjoyed the main street feel of the downtown. It has a number of interesting little independent shops including an outstanding Western wear store where I bought some stuff. There's also a Santa Fe Trail information center there staffed by some very nice local volunteers. Las Vegas would make a great setting for a film about a small town in the 50s. Probably could have shot American Graffiti there.
