Small Arizona town has Hollywood appeal

Longhorn Grill
Amado, Arizona, is a small town about 40 miles south of Tucson at Exit 48 off Interstate 19, which links Tucson with the Mexican border.

 It has a few hundred residents and a miniscule business district, so townsfolk most likely to north to Green Valley or south to Nogales when they need to go shopping.

The town’s main claim to fame apparently lies with filmdom.

This is the place Gordon MacRae sang. “Oh! What  beautiful mornin’” in in Rogers and Hammerstein's  Oklahoma. Additionlly, the Longhorn Grill is where a scene in Alice doesn’t live here anymore was filmed.
