I'm honestly surprised that it is only six movies! For how majestic our state is with all the rolling hills, gorgeous mountains and high plains, I would think lots of movie makers would come out here! Three of the six movies were set mostly in Montana while the other three movies just had some scenes filmed here.

    While this movie was set mostly down in the south there are a few scenes filmed here in Montana. One shot is in Cut Bank and the other is in Glacier National Park at the St. Mary Entrance.
