Here’s a tough task for you: Name the most iconic movie that was filmed in Texas. There are a lot to choose from, right? The Lone Star State is a hugely popular setting for films, and many of them are excellent.
A travel blog called HotelsCombined.com has attempted to map the most iconic movie filmed in each state, and for Texas, the editors chose Dazed and Confused. Lord knows I love that movie, but the most iconic? Hmm. It doesn’t seem inherently Texas. It seems like a story that could have taken place just about anywhere. When I think about truly iconic Texas films, I think more along the lines of The Last Picture Show or Giant.
