  1. The opening shot of the car driving to the Outlook Hotel was filmed on the Going-to-the-Sun road in Glacier National park, Montana.

  2. Loving your blog man - awesome work, thank you! Wonder if you’d be interested to add that the entire hotel’s main interiors for the movie, while shot on Elstree soundstages in London, were modelled entirely on the interior of Yosemite’s Awahnee hotel.

    1. Thank you. I visited the Awahnee Hotel once, well over a decade ago, but for some reason just didn't take any photos. I would love to add some interior photos of the hotel the next time I go back.
