In his reference book Deutsche B-Filme. Kinematographische Appropriation, Mimesis und Rekonfiguration nach 1945 (English title: German B-Movies: Cinematographic Appropriation, Mimesis and Reconfiguration after 1945), Harald Weisser mentions a reportedly lost Schnitzel Western masterpiece starring Wulfgar von Schnautzer. He writes (p. 367):
“After having completed the infamous Laredo series with director Günter Dremmler, von Schnautzer left Germany and moved to Austria. There, in the small village of Nursch, close to Großmugl, he made the acquaintance of movie mogul Ferdinand Antel, whose brother Franz proposed directing a Western with von Schnautzer as leading man.”
Weisser remains vague about the circumstances surrounding the film’s production and about the film itself but claims that its working title was “The Snake and the Mongoose.” Is it possible that Weisser is wrong, that the movie has survived and somehow was shown on Chilean television where you saw it?
By the way, Weisser also states – erroneously, I guess – that during the production of Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s arthouse Western Django de Brest (1982) Wulfgar von Schnautzer became romantically involved with Franco Nero’s body double.
