DOCUMENTARY - The Lost Dutchman Mine ~ Behind The Scenes ~

Post by Jim Hatt » Wed Jul 08, 2009 5:45 am

These photographs were taken by me during the filming of the A&E Documentary titled The Lost Dutchman Mine, which was filmed on location in the Superstition Mountains by Greystone Communications. I will eventually add more descriptions for them as time permits. Jim Hatt

JOHN MCCAIN and a Forest Ranger in the middle of a heated dispute over an interpretation of the Wilderness Act. GOTO: http://www.desertusa.com/mb3/viewtopic. ... 5508#p5508 for details. The Gentleman in the suit at the far right in the photo. (A McCain Aid), attended an Appeal meeting with the Forest Service, when they refused to issue a Permit to do any commercial filming in the Wilderness Area. I am at the far left in the photo, wondering how long John McCain is going to put up the interruptions by the Forest Ranger. This was the second time the Ranger had interrupted the filming, to explain the Wilderness Act to the Senator, who had been very polite up to this point, but was obviously becoming more agitated each time. Notice how the female Aid appears to be not watching the argument and thinking... "This is not good"! She looked at me several times and rolled her eyes as if to say... "This could escalate into something we really don't need here".

RICK DAVIS Movie Director for Greystone Communications. Rick was in total control of everything that took place during the filming. He interviewed over 100 people before selecting who would appear in the film. He (and the film crew) slept in tents on the ground every night right along with the rest of us during the filming. He ate what we ate, drank what we drank and seemed to be loving every minute of it

After the filming in the mountains was completed, we all met in the upstairs meeting room of the SMHS Museum. Rick had asked us all to bring in photographs that he could make copies of for use in the movie. Whenever you see still photos in the move, they were collected on this day. In this photo Rick is examining Clay’s photo of Richard Holmes (Brownie’s father) and it was used in the movie.

The photo below has an interesting story behind it. When they were filming Sen. John McCain, he was interrupted several times by phone calls which he stepped way off to the side to answer. He later told us that they were all from Newt Gingrich. During the calls, we could all hear him shouting “Who LEAKED it”? into the phone over and over again. He did not tell us what they were about, but he did say that there would be some BIG breaking news before the end of the day. Later that evening while watching the evening news, they broke the story about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

They tried filming Clay on his patio with the Superstition Mountain in the background, but a slow constant rain forced them to move into his living room. This is where all sound and video footage came from where Clay tells the Holmes version of the story. A lot of this sound track was used as narration behind a lot of video and still photo footage.

DORIS ABBOTT (My "significant Other" for the lat 21 years)
Doris was the manager of the Superstition Mountain Museum after me, and at the time the Documentary was filmed. She worked tirelessly collecting all the historical information about the legends and lore of the Superstition Mountains requested by Greystone Communications, months before the main characters were selected and the filming began.

RICK DAVIS and CARL BODERICK Carl would always introduce himself and then say “No relation to Bo Derick” When he introduced himself to Rick that way. Rick replied. “I know Bo Derick, she is a friend of mine, Believe me sir… You’re "NO" Bo Derick”!

Reptilist,

Yes he was Arizona's AG for 12 years.

This was long after Bob had left the AG's Office. He also served as President of the NRA for quite a while before fully retiring. I think Charlton Heston replaced him when he left the NRA.

John McCain isn't what one would call tall, but the photo of him next to Tom Kollenborn makes him look a lot shorter than he really is. Tom is one BIG fella!

I added some streaming videos to the top of the first post, above all the photos. My dial-up connection is running very slow today so I can't test them myself. Someone will have to let me know if they aren't working.

Hey Jim, that's really cool. I only watched enough to see if they're working for you and "They Are." I'll finish watching them while I eat dinner.

Thanks for letting me know Greg. Saves me from having to drive all the way to town with my laptop, and use a high speed WiFi network connection to check them.

So is there something keeping you from having a DSL line put in. I would think that if you can get dial-up you could also have DSL. :D
