Randolph Scott (January 23, 1898 – March 2, 1987) made 107 films as an actor. A good portion of them "Westerns," twelve of the which were made here in the Alabama Hills. Featured in our exhibit room are framed one- sheets of the twelve movies and many memorabilia items, some from the museum archives and a good portion on loan from Randolph Scott's daughter, Sandra. Sandra and her family attended the 2014 Film Festival, where she talked about her father's career in the movies and his very successful career as an oil business man. The Single Action Army Colt 45 guns on display were a gift from Justin Dart, of Dart Industries, who had considered buying Colt Manufacturing . While he did not buy the company, he did acquire a beautiful pair of guns for Scott.
The exhibit also includes a pair of Scott's cowboy boots, Hat, Golden Boot Award presented in 1974, lobby cards, articles, books, and letters from politicians. George Montgomery, actor and artist, created a beautiful bronze whixh is also on display.

Burt Kennedy remembers museum and pays honor to Randolph Scott in his will...
August 9, 2002: Screenwriter and director Burt Kennedy has remembered the Museum of Lone Pine Film History in his will and the estate has told us that Burt left us his copies of the four Randolph Scott westerns made in Lone Pine that he wrote.
The original scripts for Comanche Station, Ride Lonesome, Seven Men From Now and The Tall T will all be given to the museum collection. He also left us lobby cards and other movie memorabilia from his den. Burt attended the Film Festival several times before his death and was a great guest and a wonderful friend. His talent certainly enriched our local film history with those four fine films.
