Alaska’s first known on-location film was shot in Anchorage–a silent film shot in 1924. Since then, some of the more well-known movies that have been wholly or partially filmed in Alaska include Never Cry Wolf, White Fang, Insomnia, The Thing, 50 First Dates, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and more.
