    THIS WEEK IN THE NORTH STATE...

    Firefox is a 1982 action film produced, directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. Many of the scenes at the beginning of the film were shot in the Intermountain area. The beginning has a helicopter flying past Lassen Peak and over Eiler Lake in the Thousand Lakes Wilderness, doubling as a location in Alaska. The scenes of Eastwood running, cowering inside a home and discussing the assignment to steal a plane in Russia were shot on the Rising River Ranch in Cassel.

    Burney Falls is featured in this 1958 Tarzan film Fight For Life starring Gordon Scott (the 11th actor to portray Tarzan), Eve Brent, Rickie Sorensen, Jil Jarmyn, and Cheeta the chimpanzee. The picture was the second Tarzan movie released in color, and the last to portray the ape man speaking broken English until Tarzan, the Ape Man (1981). The filming locations also included Africa and Hollywood, California. It appears scenes also included filming on Hat Creek and the Pit River.

    A section of the McCloud Railway line was featured in the 1993 music video for Aerosmith’s 'Livin’ on the Edge.' In the scene, guitarist Joe Perry plays a solo in front of an oncoming train (filmed using special effects), stepping off the tracks at the last second. The owner of the railroad was highly criticized by his peers in the rail transportation industry for allowing the filming. Their belief was such a depiction would only encourage others to attempt a similar stunt. The bridge across Lake Britton and the McCloud Railway train are featured for 39 seconds starting at 2:19 from the beginning of the video. The words 'McCloud Railway' are also depicted on the side of the replica No. 39 train engine used in the film studio where the band members are playing (about 47 seconds from the beginning). The same train trestle was used in the 1986 Rob Reiner directed film 'Stand by Me.' The Aerosmith video was directed by Marty Callner and was praised for its groundbreaking theatrical scenes and special effects. The popular video for the song earned the band a Viewer's Choice award at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards. The video was also voted 'Best Video' by Metal Edge readers in the magazine's 1993 Readers' Choice Awards.
