New Film Festival To Celebrate Conejo Valley’s Role In Cinematic Classics Like “Wuthering Heights,” “Spartacus”

Posted on Monday, November 5, 2012 12:18am

It’s an almost forgotten part of our region’s history. Some of Hollywood’s legendary actors, like Lawrence Olivier, and Kirk Douglas made parts of some of their most famous movies in the Conejo Valley.

Parts of “Spartacus,” “Wuthering Heights,” and two classic versions of “Robin Hood” were shot in what was then sparsely populated eastern Ventura County.

This weekend, a new film festival will celebrate the region’s cinematic history, by showing five of the classics at California Lutheran University, in Thousand Oaks.
