 @jp2e Yes," Dark Horse" had several SV/Ketchum locations.  Most memorable for Ketchum was the transformation of Louie's Pizza into the exterior of a teen club.  The interior was Creekside.  A key stunt was filmed up on Trail Creek Summit.  A horse truck and  trailer jack-knifed and the trailer rolled off TC road (allegedly with the horse inside.)  It was our worst nightmare from every trip over that road brought to life on film.  Key facilitators on the Louie's/Creekside set were Prudence Hemmings, Louie Mallane and John Wells.  Key to the Trail Creek stunt were Ken Corrock, and Steve Garman.  The film was directed by David Hemmings.  His executive assistant was Marcus Beresford.  Location Manager, yours truly.  There are many other films and national commercials that shot here but didn't fit your "Hollywood" criteria.  And it's not over.  We're still open for business.

Missing from this summary is 1990's "Dark Horse"  starring Ed Begley, Jr,, Ari Meyers, and Natasha Richardson.  Locals Rip Sewell, Corey Simpson, and Judge James May and others had speaking roles.  Still others worked behind the scenes on the film shot primarily in Hailey and at the Susie Q Ranch near Picabo.  It also should be pointed out that Hollywood location scouts have never soured on this area.  A major Tom Cruise movie, "Oblivion" scouted less than a year ago.  What changed was the convenience of transportation.  Loading a film company on a train and going directly from L.A. to Sun Valley made for very easy logistics.  Another negative factor today is our lack of location production incentives.  Our Film Office keeps trying but we have been unable to fund incentives for shooting in Idaho.  The upside, we have a phenomenal variety of locations within one hour of a luxury resort.  We'll be back.
