Arizona became the 48th state in 1912. It is the land of rugged mountains, desert valleys, and the Grand Canyon. This beautiful scenery provided the backdrop for many western movies based on Arizona's frontier days. The state's early history is rich with real locations and real names that made Hollywood westerns exciting such as OK Corral, Tombstone, Doc Holiday, Wyatt Earp, Chochise and Geronimo. Today, however, the wild west has been tamed and replaced with grazing cattle, cotton fields, Citrus groves, and tourism.
