[quote=“Phil H, post:13, topic:858”]Just to add grist to the mill…
Giusti’s Dizionario Del Western All’italiana lists this one as made in 1967 and released in 1968. However, the final sentence in the commentary states:
“Girato nel 1966 anche negli studi Balcazar.”
Now, I’m no italian speaker but i think that means something like ‘filmed in 1966 according to Balcazar’ (translation help from someone qualified please?)
So maybe it was filmed in 66, completed in 67 and released in 68?[/quote]
The Italian phrase seems incomplete, Phil. (And Balcazar is the name of a studio.)
It says “filmed also in Balcazar studios in 1966” - so my question is: what has exactly been filmed in those studios?
I guess it refers to something already said a line, or a few lines back.
It’s possible that some scenes were shot in '66, while the bulk of the movie was shot during the next year. Balcazar is a Spanish studio, situated in the Barcelona area. According to IMDB this is a Italian/German co-production, so I suppose they shot some outdoor scenes near Barcelona, instead of the Almeria region. I’ve seen the movie but have no copy; we all know the Almeria settings very well and I guess you’ll notice this film’s locations look different. Anyone with a copy should check the begin credits: usually info about studios and shooting years is given.
