About "SCV In the Movies": The Santa Clarita Valley has always been Hollywood's back lot, doubling for everything from Vietnam to alien planets. Whether it's a chase scene in John Ford's "Stagecoach" or Steven Spielberg blowing us up in "War of the Worlds," it happened right here. SCVTV's original series, "SCV in the Movies," is just that: Movies with the SCV in them.

"SCV In the Movies" is hosted and scripted by E.J. Stephens and Bill West. Stephens is a film historian, a published author of history books and has served on the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society board of directors. West is a motion picture industry software engineer and a director of the Friends of William S. Hart Park and Museum.
