Red Canyon is a 1949 Technicolor Western directed by George Sherman and starring Ann Blyth, Howard Duff and George Brent. It was based on the novel Wildfire by Zane Grey.


The plot revolves around Black Velvet, a wild stallion that runs rampant across the range. Two people, reformed bad man Lin Sloan (played by Howard Duff) and tomboyish farmer's daughter Lucy Bostel (Ann Blyth), think they can tame him. In the process, they tame each other.



Parts of the film were shot in Duk Creek, Cascade Falls, Kanab Canyon, Kanab Race Track, Aspen Mirror Lake, Paria, Tibbets Valley, and Bryce Canyon in Utah.[1]:288
