Wanted: Spaghetti Western experts!


(ukstrummers) #1

Hi, I’m making a film in which I’d like to include sequences from Spaghetti Westerns juxtaposed with the action. I was wondering if anyone could help by telling me in which films I can find examples of the following scenes:

  1. A lone man walking or riding into town
  2. A man alone at the bar of a saloon
  3. A man (or men) digging a grave or carrying a spade on his way to dig a grave
  4. 1 or 2 men playing music in the street (an acordean would be great, or just singing)
  5. A celebration/party at a saloon (drinking, singing, dancing, etc.)
  6. A car (are there any cars in Spaghetti Westerns?)
  7. A man lighting a cigarette for a woman
  8. A doctor
  9. 2 men talking seriously over drinks
  10. Children in a school class
  11. A waiter serving drinks in a saloon

Thank you - I really appreciate any help with any one of the above points.

As for the car, well there is a couple of Zapata westerns that have one.

Thanks! Which Zapata westerns should I look at?

Car:

Quickly comes to my mind:

Tepepa
Vivi o preferibilmente morti
Sabata the Killer
Il mercenario

Aside from the films that volonte mentioned, there’s a car in one scene of What Am I Doing in the Middle of the Revolution? (haven’t seen any good quality print of that one, though).

No problem, just give me some credits on your movie :wink:

Haven’t got a school class picture readily available, but there are school class scenes featuring this kid (and his class mates):

I think there’s a school in the long version of Beyond the Law (Giorgio Stegani), but I haven’t got a copy
