Blind, broke, 79-years old and sleeping with the Manson Girls

The story of rancher George Spahn

In the 2019 Quentin Tarantino film “Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood” stuntman Cliff Booth (played by Brad Pitt) drives a runaway girl to Spahn Ranch, a derelict 500-acre ranch in Simi Valley, California. Booth recognizes the place because he had stuntwork at Spahn Ranch during its heyday, shooting Western films and television programs. Now, it’s looking seedy at best, a group of filthy hippies are moping around the place and the owner, George Spahn is nowhere to be seen.
