Many Hollywood stars came to W.K. Kellogg's ranch to be photographed with his Arabian horses during the 1920s and 1930s. Actress Clara Bow, the "It Girl" of the 1920s, was the first Hollywood personality to visit the Kellogg Ranch. There were many other stars that visited to take publicity photos or just enjoy the scenery and the beautiful Arabian horses. Will Rogers, Loretta Young, Gary Cooper, Mary Pickford, Tom Mix and Ronald Reagan also visited the ranch. Hollywood used the Kellogg Ranch to shoot several films. The two films "The Rains of Ranchipur" (1955) and "Tip on a Dead Jockey" (1957) used the original stables, which is now known as Union Plaza. "The Sandpiper" (1965), featuring the famous Elizabeth Taylor, used the chapel at the Voorhis Unit.
