NEW STUFF IN AND AROUND THE SWDB IN AUGUST 2023:
- We’re still trying to get in touch with the person who ran the Altervista website https://web.archive.org/web/20220330035944/http://spaghettiwestern.altervista.org/ if anyone knows, please send us a message.
- We’re also trying to locate our friend from Finland who went by the name of Shobary (with the popular SW website with that title).
Why? We want to rescue and preserve the remnants of these two websites, like we’re currently doing with A Fistful of Pasta (still a work in progress).
- Let us know if you want to help with our new master calendar Calendar - The Spaghetti Western Database and company directory Company directory - The Spaghetti Western Database. We still need help to fill those with information, please get in touch!
- … as always: join the SWDb, help out, it will make it better You don’t have to become a full time editor or official staff member to contribute. Anything from being active in the forum over correcting spelling mistakes to joining entire improvement projects is more than welcome. From all over the world, in all languages, we welcome help!
The major overhaul of the SWDb is thus further progressing. We continue work on the improvements of the SWDb, notably the film pages, and we’re slowly starting to touch up other parts of the database. If you’re interested in seeing what we’re doing or if you want to join and help, click here to read about it: SWDb 3.0 (our massive 2022/2023 project)
If you’re a Letterboxd user, we hope you’re as excited as we are about the official SWDb Letterboxd HQ account. Click here to learn more about that (long story short: follow us on LB).
Also: all the revised film pages in the SWDb have a direct link to their respective LB entry.
In July we had Arrow’s long awaited new box set, a few other smaller editions and a flurry of re-releases across the globe.
In August we had just a handfull of releases, but the HD premiere (albeit so-so quality) of the MacGregors was much welcome and so is the arrival of the Hellbenders in France, and a few other titles.
September will see the MacGregors returning, and we also will witness the western debut of the UK label Malmobra Films with a Mario Bava title. So stay tuned.
All in all, our calendar is slowly extending into late summer… stay tuned!

Please contact us if you want your reviews published. We are especially looking for reviews of movies that have no, or very few, reviews in the SWDb. We publish them in all languages, and you don’t need to be a professional writer!
