An engaging ride through Oklahoma’s untold cinematic history
shot in oklahoma
a C  s s C
B J W
When inventor and movie studio pioneer Thomas Edison wanted to capture western
magic on lm in 1904, where did he send his crew?
To Oklahoma’s 101 Ranch near Ponca City. And when Francis Ford Coppola readied
young actors Tom Cruise and Matt Dillon to portray teen class strie in the 1983 movie
The Outsiders, he took cast and crew to Tulsa, the setting o S. E. Hinton’s acclaimed
novel. From Edison to Coppola and beyond, Oklahoma has served as both backdrop
and home base or cinematic productions. The only book to chronicle the history
o made-in-Oklahoma lms, John Wooley’s Shot in Oklahoma explores the variety,
spunk, and ingenuity o moviemaking in the Sooner State over more than a century.
Wooley’s trek through cinematic history, buttressed by meticulous research and
interviews, hits the big lms readers have heard o—but maybe didn’t realize were
shot in the state—along with lesser-known oerings. We also get the lms’ intriguing
backstories. For instance, President Theodore Roosevelt’s ascination with a man
purportedly able to catch a wol in his hands led to The Wol Hunt, shot in the
Wichita Mountains and screened in the White House in 1909. Over time, homegrown
movies such as Where the Red Fern Grows (1974, 2003) have given way to eature
lms including The Outsiders and Rain Man (1988). Throughout this tale, Wooley
draws attention to unsung aspects o state and cinematic history, including early
all-black movies lensed in Oklahoma’s Arican American towns and lms starring
American Indian leads.
With a nod to more recent Hollywood productions such asTwis t er (1996) and
Elizabethtown (2005), Wooley ultimately explores how a low-budget slasher movie
created in Oklahoma in the 1980s transormed the movie business worldwide.
Punctuated with photographs and including a lmography o more than one hundred
productions lmed in the state, Shot in Oklahoma oers movie lovers and historians
alike an engaging ride through untold cinematic history.
John Wooley, ormerly entertainment writer with the Tulsa World, has written, co-
written, or edited more than 20 books, including the recent novel, Ghost Band, and
the nonction From the Blue Devils to Red Dirt: The Colors o Oklahoma Music.
