The setting at Mescal resembles a late 1800s town, complete with a dusty main street lined with one-story and two-story buildings. Cattle are frequently the inhabitants, along with rolling tumbleweeds coming to a stop against a leaning hitching post. Wind flutters curtains through windows. And off in the distance, rolling hills lead to lofty mountain heights that play with the imagination.
Located just 45 minutes from the parent home of Old Tucson, the Mescal film set offers an rustic Old West town atmosphere atop a hill surrounded by tall grasses and cacti. This location has been featured in over 50 film, television and commercial productions including “Monte Walsh” (1968 with Lee Marvin), “Dirty Dingus Magee” (1970 with Frank Sinatra), “The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean” (1972 with Paul Newman), “Tombstone” (1993 with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer), “The Quick and the Dead” (1994 with Sharon Stone and Gene Hackman) and “Buffalo Soldiers” (1997 with Danny Glover).
