Spaghettis at the box office


(Bill san Antonio) #1

Does anyone know which spaghettis were biggest at the box office in Italy? I know Leone’s did well of course and They call me Trinity (or the sequel) was the biggest success ever in Italy but it would be nice to know the top10 or more.


(The Halitosis Kid) #2

I don’t know about a Top 10 but here’s a quote from “Spaghetti Westerns - Cowboys and Europeans from Karl May to Sergio Leone” by Christopher Frayling, Page 51 “Spaghettis and Society”

Films which made a fortune on Italian domestic release alone include: Leone's trilogy, Corbucci's Django (plus some derivatives), Tessari's Ringo films, Lizzani's The Hills Run Red, Petroni's Death Rides a Horse, Valreii's Day of Anger, Damiani's A Bullet for the General, Corbucci's Navajo Joe and A Professional Gun, Sollima's Big Gundown and Face to Face, Parolini's Sabata an the first two Trinity films.

Bert Fridlund’s book has extensive box office data of SW’s in the appendix. Unfortunately its only italian box office. I would be interested in knowing the box office gross in Germany, Spain, France, UK, US and worldwide as well.
