Staring the Lone Star State

Interactive Websites and AppsJoin the Texas Archive of the Moving Image for their online exhibit, Staring the Lone Star State. For over a century, Texas has served as a location for thousands of film productions, from independent features to Hollywood blockbusters. The state has also been home to some of cinema’s most influential players both in front of and behind the camera: Joan Crawford, Debbie Reynolds, Matthew McConaughey, and Robert Rodriguez, to name only a few. Texas’ prominent role in the industry began with the very dawn of American cinema at the turn of the 20th century.
