In 1966 the Spanish Army built a huge cemetery with 5000 graves in Burgos for the final sequence in the film "The Good the Bad and the Ugly". After the shooting, the whole place was left behind and for 49 years, nature covered every tomb. In October 2015 a group of film fans decided to start digging and under 3 inches of ground they found the original paved circle. For months, people from all around Europe traveled to Sad Hill to unearth and rebuild the place. Sad Hill Unearthed is the amazing story behind one of the most iconic locations in film history. It explores the dreams and motivations behind the fans but also the transformation of art, music and film in a substitute for religion.
I'd never even heard of this before and I just happened to see it on Netflix. At least they realize that Good the Bad and the Ugly is the cinematic masterpiece of Westerns. What an amazing film. Brilliantly scored by Ennio Morricone, one of the greatest composers of all time.
And wow, all the effort that was put in by true fans of the film, and the art...to restore this cemetery. Amazing.
And the contributions by James Hetfield. Ennio Morricone. and then.... a word from 'God' haha, Clint Eastwood himself.
What an amazing accomplishment for the fans of Good , Bad , Ugly and of Leone, Morricone and Eastwood, Van Cleef, and Wallach.
