With it's magnificent rock outcroppings, rugged chaparral, and oak tree studded landscape Chatsworth's Iverson Movie Ranch, and it's 25 miles of scenic chase roads was the perfect back drop for the antics of such comedy greats as Abbott and Costello, Bob Hope, Laurel and Hardy, and Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.
Over several decades dozens of delightful comedies were lensed on the Iverson Ranch. Included here is a short list of a few of my favorites...
Ride 'Em Cowboy (1942) starring Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Dick Foran and Johnny Mack Brown (Iverson Ranch) Universal. For more information about this classic see http://a-drifting-cowboy.blogspot.com/2012/07/best-chatsworth-movies-ride-em-cowboy.html
