High Plains Drifter (1973)
Clint Eastwood said, among other notable things, "If I'm drifting, I'm going to drift my way!" So, he hopped into his pickup truck and drove alone through Oregon, Nevada and California looking for a film location. 300 miles from Hollywood, Eastwood had an entire town built on the shores of Mono Lake for the High Plains Drifter project. Lago was slapped together comprising fourteen houses and one two-story hotel. Complete buildings, rather than facades, were built, so that Eastwood could shoot interior scenes on the site. Additional scenes were filmed at Reno, Nevada's Winnemucca Lake and California's Inyo National Forest. Eastwood filmed High Plains Drifter in sequence. Filming was completed in only six weeks, two days ahead of schedule, and under budget.
