Title: Robert Hossein in OUTW?

IMDB credits him as one of the members of Frank's gang in the flashback. I can't see him anywhere, though.

That scene was filmed in USA too.  Monument Valley, 14 miles into Utah.

Does it list those gang guys with American names, or would Leone bring Italians over for such scene?

By the way, I wonder if Frank and his gang of thugs disobeyed the signs in Monument Valley

Just because he's a ruthless killer, we shouldn't assume he'd trespass, litter, etc.   ?????

Watching that scene I note: 3 horses, Fonda and three of his gang in the pan shot including Mancini and the young Harmonica. Then close ups of Fonda and four of his gang. Those faces do not look american to me. And the shot from behind Mancini does not include the arc. All of that makes me suspect that some of the shots were made in Spain.


BTW Hossein wasn't there. But John Landis was:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ar3sHQB_rbU
