Interior of the Fawn Lodge
RichardG, Tue May 19 2020, 01:35PM

I recently found on the internet a film that was made in Fawnskin. The name of the film was Giant from the unknown which was made in 1958. There are a couple of the scenes in the film that appear to be from the interior of the Fawn Lodge or possibly the Fawn Cafe. I have attached two of the screen shots of those scenes. Can anyone verify if they are from the Fawn Lodge? I would appreciate if anyone could post interior photographs of the Lodge or Cafe.

Just for kicks we watched the entire thing! LOTS of film of Holcomb Valley, Polique Canyon, and Fawnskin. The acting and story line are so bad as to be comical! But we watched it all so the trade off was worth it! Be on the look out for conquistador remnants!!
