Greetings Spaghetti Western fans, I’m Matt Palmer. As none of you may know, I’m working on a Spaghetti Western-style independent film that will run the course of only thirty minutes. Sadly, I must admit that the plot isn’t as sticky as the standard Spaghetti Western, but I’m doing this for a final in my film production class, so it has to be tolerable to a more general audience than the usual SW. I’m posting this topic to occasionally ask little particulars of you guys, since my knowledge of the great Spaghetti Westerns is a tad broad.
To summarize the plot line: Our story revolves around the cursed treasure of the Confederate war hero, Ronald Bloomer. Our heroes, a young treasure hunter and his accomplice, a beautiful half-Mexican girl, stumble upon this fortune by chance. Meanwhile, the dead Confederate’s son is out on the hunt for his father’s lost fortune- and as a business man who always gets his prize, he will stop at nothing to take his rightful wealth back. Everything goes to Hell when our young hero starts to be haunted by the old Rebel’s ghost- who is trying to see to it that the boy spends his money the Christian-like way and not on painted ladies and Faro. With a twist or two, it’s a horseless western bound to be enjoyed by anybody.
…By horseless, I mean we don’t have any horses in the movie. Couldn’t rent them, can’t borrow them. Besides, some of our actors can’t ride them.
