I was watching the “trilogy” this weekend, and noticed something I had not noticed before. I realize that both films, For A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly were both shot in Almeria, but there are two scenes that look like they were shot at exactly the same spot and from nearly the same camera angle.
In The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, it’s the scene where Blondie and Tuco are making it across the desert after they’ve pulled their ruse for the second time. In For A Few Dollars More, it’s the opening scene. This looks like the same location to me, just different coloring (from the time of day) and again, a slightly different camera position.
Am I correct?
I’m sure there are probably others, as well, that I’ll be more careful to notice in the future.
