We put this YouTube up on Facebook September 17, 2014. http://youtu.be/rMbATaj7Il8
It produced quite a few comments so we felt we ought to archive the comments someplace. This is an experiment to see if Facebook comments will transfer to this blog. Interestingly, we deleted the Facebook posts but these comments appear to be living on.
- Thomas Olsen the camera man must have been at a safety meeting with DH and PF...it's not even in focus!
- Thomas Olsen the same cyclone fence, in the background with the red/white x's is STILL there!
- John R. Parsons The NORAZ scenes of Easy Rider are some of the most classic of their genre.
- John R. Parsons Really? Seriously? That's really WILD. Can you take a picture to match the movie scene?
- Thomas Olsen the easy part was filming the bikers...those two (Fonda, Hopper) guys were the 21st and 22nd guys like that to ride down Santa Fe that morning!

- Thomas Olsen Sedillo's dry clearer to the left of the church steeple...that is trivia!
- Thomas Olsen Hopper is staring back at the cop that used to hide on the corner of Butler and Santa Fe!!! All the drunks and hippies in town knew when he would be there!
- Anita Moloney an aside.... i had the pleasure to work on Hooper a year before he left us! i should have paid him! he was so entertaining!
- John R. Parsons Thanks, Anita. can't wait to hear the "rest of the story."
- Thomas Olsen and my boys are shaking their heads, looking at each other, saying, 'don't you hate it when he starts in on shit like this!"
- Thomas Olsen LOL John...and, they'll just say, 'all of Dad's friends are starting to get like this!"
- Peter Corbett Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper who produced, directed and starred in Easy Rider understandably were captivated by the beauty of the Flagstaff area and captured these great scenes circa 1968. A lumberjack statue is in the parking lot now at Granny's Closet near where it stood in this film.
- Gerry Quotskuyva I was 9 at the time and was walking home from school when I saw them filming a scene at a motorcycle shop in East Flag. Then I remember seeing the Lumberjack a couple of times with no ax. Later on I found out that the ax was stolen as part of a college prank.September 17 at 11:58pm · Edited · Unlike · 2
