The Last Frontier Movies
The Last Frontier is the official nickname of Alaska. Alaska is thought of as "America's Last Frontier" because of its distance from the lower 49 states and because of its rugged landscape and climate. This remote and rugged perception is evidenced by the fact that only about 1/3 of the state has been organized into political units; 13 boroughs (similar to counties) are defined (source: netstate.com). Alaska became the 49th state of the United States of America in 1959. These movies have a connection with Alaska. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Alaska? You may discuss the poll here Click here to vote for other States of America
