15 Movies You Probably Didn’t Know Were Filmed In Arkansas

Surely you’ve seen (and love) Arkansas-born Billy Bob Thornton’s classic “Sling Blade” and perhaps you’ve watched the legal dramas “The Client” and “The Firm”, both adapted from Jonesboro-born John Grisham’s best selling novels. These movies were filmed in Arkansas as well as many other films worth a watch.

If you’re a movie buff, you’ve likely recognized a few names on this list. For a true “slice of life” of classic Arkansas and a great piece of storytelling, I highly recommend Elia Kazan’s “A Face in the Crowd” with the late Andy Griffith. You’ll be surprised at the diverse characters our beloved Sheriff Andy Taylor of Mayberry can play!
