Spaghetti western character


(Bill san Antonio) #1

First sw’s quite often featured some real life western legends as a heroes (Buffalo Bill, Pat Garret etc) but it didn’t take long until the italians came up with their own western heroes for their own visions of west. I made this list of some of the most famous and some other lesser know heroes who appeared in more than one movie. Also added the actor who’s most known as playing the character. There must be some others too I coudn’t remember, anyone knows more?

Man with no name (Clint Eastwood)
Django (Franco Nero)
Sartana (Gianni Garko)
Ringo (Giuliano Gemma)
Stranger (Tony Anthony)
Sabata (Lee Van Cleef)
Hallelujah (George Hilton)
Trinity+Bambino (Terence Hill & Bud Spencer)
Cat Stevens+Hutch (Terence Hill & Bud Spencer)
Cuchillo (Tomas Milian)
Providence (Tomas Milian)
Pecos (Robert Woods)
Tresette (George Hilton)
Nobody (Terence Hill)
-not really the same character though in Nobody’s the Greatest.
Shanghai Joe
Clint the Stranger (George Martin)
MacGregor family
Holy Ghost (Vassili Karis)
Kitosch (George Hilton)
-Can’t remember if there was any connection in Time of Vultures or did they just use the same name.

you have to just love how sartana1968 absolutely out of the topic posted his informative list :smiley:
i talked to him on facebook, why he is not on SWDB anymore - he forgot password :slight_smile:

anyway - it’s not really a character made up by italians, but it is fictional character nevertheless - Robert Woods played same character in two (or three?) SWs based somewhat on Jack London’s writings - White Fang and Goldiggers, can’t remember the other one

actually, same for Franco Nero

i think, these should be also on the list, aye?

It doesn’t really count but “Beauregard” was the name of Fonda’s character in “My Name is Nobody” and Milian’s character in “Face to Face”. However, Fonda was “Jack Beauregard” whereas Milian was “Solomon ‘Beauregard’ Bennett” and the characters are pretty different in style.

This might be a question for “i want to find this SW” thread, but …
I’d read some time ago about two, or three, probably spanish (or mexican, or even brazilian) westerns, featuring the same character - enigmatic black clad gunman with dark long hair and he probably had a rifle.
I totally forgot about it, and now i can’t remember, on which site i’d read that. I’d say these films were made in seventies (but wouldn’t bet on it). Does it ring a bell? Anyone?

tomas, you probably mean Glauber Rocha’s Black God, White Devil and its sequel Antonio das Mortes - and it is really a brazilian venture
