Of all the Brokeback locations, the filmmakers deemed the Twist Ranch to be the most worthy. More time and money were spent preparing it than on any other structure seen in the film. Production designer Judy Becker, and a team of expert carpenters and set dressers, rose to the challenge. Starting with a virtual ruin, they delivered to Ang Lee an amazing building that was entirely worthy of the climactic scenes that he shot here.
You can see the remarkable transformation that took place at the Twist Ranch in this rare set of 2004 photos.
