There was some discussion about gay themes in Adios Sabata on the SWWB a while ago. Personally I’m not sure what to think about this film except that Yul Brunner and some other guys wear costumes out of Village People’s wardrobe. ;D
But I came to think other spaghetti westerns with obvious gay characters. The most obvious is of course the gay cowboy gang in Django Kill! Also Nino Castelnuovo in Massacre Time and my favorite gay couple in sw’s: George Hilton and Klaus Kinski who have very twisted relationship in Ruthless Four. Some have even suggested that there’s something sexual between Nino and El Chuncho in Bullet for the General.
There must be others too but can’t remember more right now. What do you think of the subject? Why did they include so many gay themes in spaghetti westerns?
