WESTERN, Italian STYLE (TV) (Patrick Morin, 1968) **1/2
8 September 2006 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This documentary - made for American TV and included as an extra on the Blue Underground DVD of RUN, MAN, RUN (1968) - gives us a rare behind-the-scenes look at the Spanish town of Almeria which throughout the 1960s and 1970s literally stood in for the American West or Mexico in some 600 Spaghetti Westerns! Among the interviewees are Italian directors Enzo G. Castellari, Sergio Corbucci and Sergio Sollima, as well as French film star Jean-Louis Trintignant and American actor Chuck Connors. The short - narrated by character actor Frank Wolff, a regular in Spaghetti Westerns - is especially valuable for showing such key genre classics as THE GREAT SILENCE (1968), ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (1968) and RUN, MAN, RUN itself being filmed.
