Stairway to Paradise...

You may remember the iconic "Stairway to Paradise" as sung and danced in American in Paris. Ah,  yes, the lighted pink staircase! Go here to refresh your memory! Here is a modern sculptor's vision of that same voyage as seen on the grounds of Hacienda del Sol Resort in Tucson, AZ. 


  1. This is a fun sculpture. I like how bits of the background are framed in the footprints. I can't emphasize how much I love old movies. I just requested American in Paris from the library. I usually watch a few every week. Sometimes I watch a bunch of movies with one actor or a theme. Sometimes what ever catches my eye on the shelf. I should look for movies filmed around Tucson.

  2. Hi Kathy! Old movies are a favorite of mine, too! I love the b/w films of Bette Davis, Cary Grant, Gary Cooper, etc etc. LOTS of movies and TV shows have been filmed in Tucson and here is a link to 5 "modern" ones: https://tucson.com/entertainment/movies/modern-movies-that-were-filmed-in-tucson/collection_b9eceffe-63c5-11e5-80d6-8312ff318885.html#1
