In the 1987 film Raising Arizona, H.I. McDunnough and Edwina (Nicholas Cage and Bonnie Hunt) borrow money from their father-in-law for a starter home in suburban Tempe: "These were the salad days."

The scenes with the mobile home were shot in Lost Dutchman State Park. The park is named after Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine, a famous gold mine legendary among the tales of the Old West.
