The High Chaparral - Behind the scenes.

Post by heartbeatgirl » Tue Dec 20, 2011 5:39 pm

I thought it would be a fun idea to do a thread on behind the scenes photos from The High Chaparral, especially as the regular crew were also responsible for our favourite show! :grin
If anyone has any pictures, they would like to share, please feel free to post them here! :cheer
I'll start with this photo of David Dortort and Kent McCray on location, during filming of High Chaparral.

I'm doing Don Collier's Bio for guest stars--Sam. If I find some pics that are fitting for here, I'll post them.

Great idea, HBG! I used to watch/love THC as a kid. I loved Manolito and his beautiful Palomino. Looking forward to more great pics!

Filming of The High Chaparral in 1968! The figure to the left of the photo looks like Leif Erickson (Big John Cannon)!

They were definitely in desert country. As I see this photo, it seems like they did all of their outdoor scenes outdoors, not on a set. Does this seem correct? It's been many years since I've seen the show.
