"25 years since Rambo filming"

25 years since Rambo filming

In the fall of 1981 the District of Hope, B.C. was transformed by Hollywood set designers to become the “big screen birthplace’’ of John Rambo.
A crew of approximately 50 to 100 people moved in to create the set and stayed throughout the almost six weeks of filming for First Blood. During that time they constructed the “Sheriff’s office’’ on the lawn of our District Hall. It was an almost architecturally identical duplicate of the District Hall itself. They also constructed the false front of a service station at the junction of the TransCanada Hwy #1 and Old Hope-Princeton Way and built the gun shop on the street across from the District Hall on the corner of Third Ave. and Commission St. Three of these sets would be the scene of violent and destructive film sequences.
But the crew also did some detailed work around town. They placed American mailboxes and newspaper dispensers on the downtown streets, flew American flags from the flagpoles and erected a Tony Lama cowboy boots billboard and US Army billboard downtown.
Once the announcement of the filming was made, movie madness struck Hope as 550 local residents turned out for a casting call. Only 100 extras were needed so competition was fierce and rumor has it that only men shorter than Stallone were chosen as extras!
It was a time for star-watching on the streets of Hope as Sylvester Stallone (John Rambo), and Brian Dennehy (Sheriff Teasle) frequented local businesses and restaurants. See pages 11 and 12 for other movie information.
Come back to Hope in October 2007 for a special First Blood Rambo celebration. Details available at the Hope Visitor InfoCentre at 604-869-2021.

Where there's travel, there's Hope!

"Hope"

The bustling town of Hope lies on the banks of the mighty Fraser River where it emerges from the awesome Fraser Canyon. It is a division point for the main highways that come east from Vancouver. The Trans Canada Highway heads north through the canyon whilst Highway 3 goes eastward towards Princeton.

Both of Canada's railways pass through here as well, the CN on the east side of the canyon and CP on the west. It's great to watch the trains snaking their way through the canyon and listening to their whistles echoing off the canyon walls.

Historic Hope was also a gold mining town in the past, as were the towns of Yale, Boston Bar and Spuzzum.
