It would be interesting to talk a little about all the italian westerns that were made before Sergio Leone re-invented the genre with his first masterpiece A Fistful of Dollars in 1964
Both Sergio Corbucci and Mario Caiano, who later were to direct many spaghettis, were involved in this early boom of italian made westerns.
I think I’ve only seen Corbucci’s Massacre at Grand Canyon, but he also made Minnesota Clay, in the early more american style of italo-westerns.
Caiano directed Pistols don’t Argue, actually at the same time that Leone was shooting Fistful in Spain.
Of course there were many more films made. So speak out, have you seen many of these early italian westerns and what do you think of them?
