The Silver State Movies
The Silver State is the official nickname of Nevada. The nickname dates back to the Nevada silver-rush days of the mid 1800's. At that time silver was literally shoveled off the ground in Nevada; heavy gray crusts of silver had formed on the surface of the desert over millions of years and were polished by dust and wind to the dull luster of a cow horn (called "horn silver"). A big silver bed could be tens of meters wide and more than a kilometer long (worth $27,000 a ton in 1860's dollars). The territory of Nevada and surrounding states were picked clean of silver within a few decades (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Nevada became the 36th state of the United States of America in 1864. These movies have a connection with Nevada. They are (partially) filmed there or it's a topic in the story. Which movie (or movie poster) do you associate the most with Nevada?
