Marfa--Hollywood's Best Kept Secret

For those of you Oscar buffs, this may already be old news--but Hollywood has discovered (like it didn't already know about it) that Marfa (small West Texas town) is the perfect back drop for Box Office hits.  Both "NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN" and "THERE WILL BE BLOOD" were filmed in this sleepy,dry and dusty West Texas Town.  It was also the setting for the 1957 epic film "GIANT" with Elizabeth Taylor and James Dean. 

You can read the articles about Marfa here.  The article goes on to say that Marfa is quickly becoming an "Artist" community like Santa Fe, NM.   

It may be worth a drive for me to spend some time in Marfa.  I'd better get there before Hollywood comes calling again.
