Sneaking Into Sneakyville

A couple of intrepid souls sneaked into where the filming of Spahn Ranch will be for Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.  From the looks of things they have done a pretty good job of recreating the ranch.

They are building the sets at Corriganville Park in Simi Valley.  Corriganville was once a movie ranch, like Spahn and Iverson Ranches.  It closed in 1965 when Bob Hope purchased it.  The project Hope planned did not take off and he abandoned it a year later.  Corriganville is now a regional park.

The Boardwalk

A couple of the vehicles they have gotten for the filming

What would the film be without Dune Buggies?

Looks like they are going to make this area into the horse arena

An old school bus was acquired

George Spahn's house

A barn, couple of old cars and George's house in the distance

The boardwalk, old vehicles and the bus

The boardwalk, an old wagon like the one that was in front of the ranch and a trailer similar to the one that was parked next to George's house
