Information on this page is but a small sample of the total information contained in Walt Farmer's cdrombook,
"Wyoming, A History of Film and Video in the 20th Century."
Information about that book and his other cdrombook, "The Making of Shane,"
can be obtained by clicking on the above links.
(My thanks to the Wyoming Film Office for providing an official link to this page.)

Click on the date to see the movies made that decade or scroll down as desired.

1900-1910-1920-1930-1940-1950-1960-1970-1980-1990+

FYI: The movie "Paul," was NOT filmed in Wyoming, although it was set in Wyoming, & in one scene, a car w/WY license plates appears as does Devils Tower.  It was filmed in LA, New Mexico & elsewhere, but NOT in Wyoming.  Also, Moorcroft, is in WY, but wasn't used in the film, although it was used in "Close Encounters..."  Fun film...wf

Films with a  +  in front of the description, indicates a film with a location (shot in Jackson area) that can be visited
  during the Jackson Hole film Tour.
Films with a # in front of the description, indicates a film I DO NOT have, but want.  All other films listed are films that I

Here are the movies made in WYOMING.  This is a proprietary list belonging to Walt Farmer.  These are films that were shot all or in considerable part in Wyoming in the 20th century, ending 12/31/00.  Color and not rated unless otherwise noted.  Films reviewed by author on a 1-5 scale: 1=poor, 5=superior.  BW=Black and White. While this list should be completely accurate, no claim is made that it is absolutely so. The author would appreciate any information to make the listings more accurate and as complete as possible, but I don't believe anyone anywhere, has a more comprehensive list for Wyoming.  If it's a Wyoming film, it's on this list.

For videos, TV show, news clips, commercials, documentaries, etc., visit my other Video List webpage.

 

Pre 1900 productions were mostly very short films from Edison, Essanay, & others
