• Timeline: Film and television projects in Oklahoma

    Updated:

    TULSA, Okla. - Oklahoma has been the home to many different large-scale film and television productions over the years.

    One of the first movies shot in Oklahoma was "The Daughter of Dawn," released in 1920. It's a 80-minute-long silent film that was thought to have been lost until it was found by the Oklahoma Historical Society.

    Fast forward to the 1980s, when several now-classic films were shot, at least partially, in the state. They include Weird Al Yankovic's cult hit "UHF" and the film adaptation of S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders," which helped make bona fide movie stars out of actors Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze and Rob Lowe.

    There is also one major blockbuster filmed in Oklahoma: "Twister," released in 1996. It was nominated for an Oscar and became the second highest-grossing film of 1996, behind "Independence Day."
