Storyline

A look behind the scenes during the filming of "The Guns for San Sebastian," in Durango, Mexico. The off-screen narrator describes a multi-national and multi-lingual production, cast, and crew that uses authentic locales, props, and wardrobe to tell a story that's more than 200 years old. We see Anthony Quinn and others in character and out, on and off the set, as the narrator suggests that this sort of international collaboration is the future of filmmaking.

MGM promotional short for "Guns of San Sebastian"...
14 September 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

International film-making is exemplified by this promotional short advertising the forthcoming GUNS OF SAN SEBASTIAN starring ANTHONY QUINN and filmed on location in the desert and among the mountains of northern Mexico.

The town of San Sebastian looks exactly as it did centuries ago when the action of the story takes place in the 1700s. Shown are some brief moments of filming, mostly action scenes featuring explosives and gunfire and all sorts of mayhem breaking loose. In one physically demanding moment, Quinn is dragged along the ground by a fast running horse whipped by CHARLES BRONSON.

The timeless landscape makes the Mexico location shooting perfect for this kind of story. The director, fluent in several languages, is shown directing a multi-lingual cast and crew and obviously pleased with the end results.

But on the whole, this is not a specially involving short documentary.
