A historic Stanton tale not to be forgotten

STANTON - A stranger walked into the Stanton Drug and told Glenn Brown, “Hi, I’m Jon Voight and we’re going to shoot a movie here.”

Despite the fact that Glenn was well read and had been to lots of places, he hadn’t the foggiest who in Sam Hill was Jon Voight.

That was back in the late summer of 1968, when Stanton was selected for some of the scenes for Midnight Cowboy, a rather daring movie for the time. According to Fred Caruso, the unit manager for the Jerome Production Company of New York, Stanton and Big Spring were selected for the early scenes of the movie after driving over 4,000 miles in Texas looking over prospective locations.
