The history of moviemaking in Utah doesn't stop -- which is why James V. D'Arc, the undisputed expert on the subject, is still going.
D'Arc, curator of the Motion Picture Archive at Brigham Young University, has come out with the second edition of his 2010 book, "When Hollywood Came to Town: A History of Moviemaking in Utah." (It's in stores now, from Gibbs Smith Publishers.)
The book boasts new information about movies released since the first edition was released ("The Tree of Life," anyone?), as well as information on older movies sent to D'Arc by readers and movie buffs.
It also includes a new foreward by Western star Clint Walker -- who boasts that his first movie, "Fort Dobbs," was filmed around Kanab.
Another new treat: Just before the title page, D'Arc included a map of Utah -- a promotional item by the state from 1948 (before the interstate highways were labeled) -- which labels the Kanab area as "Utah's Movie Land."
