So, I decided to write few lines for the IMDb review service again. I reckoned not to write lately at all because of my sight failure (age connected, I presume) but anyway let's proceed.
Who is Gojko Mitic and is there such thing as "Macho Legacy" coming from the Balkans (for those who lack geographical orientation this is part of Eastern Europe, running from the Alps to the Bosphorus with Istanbul and sometimes historically was first time called Europe). Gojko Mitic comes from a small town in Eastern Serbia near the Bulgarian border. He has the looks of a typical Shopi from the region. Other famous figures from the region are nowadays Bulgarian Premier Bojko Borisov, etc.
Hell, I forgot my point. Mitic's films, as a rule made by resemblance with spaghetti western, were shot in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s and after that he lost significance as Movie Star (for reasons I am not well aware). But in this 15 years period he was really something on the Big Screen, while I remember the full saloons from that time and it was always difficult to get tickets for his movies. In Eastern Europe Gojko Mitic was an action star with caliber and popularity of the great French actors of the adventure cinema such as Alain Delon, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Marais, Lino Ventura, etc.
The westerns themselves were produced by Deutsche Film (DEFA) of Eastern Germany and shot respectively at different locations in Eastern Europe but mainly in former Yugoslavia (not as someone mentioned in far eastern Uzbekistan). Gojko Mitic get noticed in some small appearances at the Winnetou franchise series and then was offered the leading role in the DEFA westerns. Whomever it concerns and because I am staunch physiognomy reader, here in Apachen (1973) and its sequel Ulzana (1974) the tandem Gojko Mitic and Colea Rautu (Romanian actor playing an aging whiskey drinking Indian) look much alike another odd couple from a most remembered Hollywood movie - i.e., Rocky (1976) with Sylvester Stallone and Burgess Meredith (an aging boxing trainer). So be it!
Lastly, there was a very popular song in Bulgaria from the 1990s about Gojko Mitic with trailer from his movies. Enjoy your time!
