I remember a version of that scene turning up in And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself too. It must be either based on historical fact or just a common device for the era.

just saw 100 Rifles, on Fox Movie Channel. I liked the film very much.
1.  It is an obvious ripoff off of "The Wild Bunch" and "Duck, You Sucker."
2. It looks like the final shootout in the town is on the El Paso set from FAFDM?
3. I liked all the performances (but Raquel Welch's Mexican accent is terrible  Wink)
4. good score by Jerry Goldsmith

Only that it was made roughly at the same time as TWB and 2 or 3 years before DYS.

And apart form being set in Mexico around the same time, these are 3 very different films.

What should make these 3 films so similar?

The "Zapata Westerns" are uniform in a lot of ways. No need to claim one is a direct inspiration on any other.

I doubt it was a direct influence on Leone or Peckinpah (or vice versa) but a lot of tropes carry over between the films: the ubiquitous firing squads, the German military advisors, the reluctant "revolutionary" leaders. Jim Brown even says "I ain't no general!" like Juan in DYS at one point.

Anyway the movie sucks. The last battle is decent and Raquel Welch is hot but otherwise it's irredeemable garbage.

It was a bit more comedic than I like Westerns to be; but otherwise I really enjoyed it  Afro

I enjoyed it too.

Well directed imo with some good action. I prefer 100 Rifles meanwhile to Will Penny. Both are 7/10

The final battle town I don't remember being in any Leone Film, the same with the film "Villa Rides" there are quite a few different RR and town locations in it also particularly the arch bridge sequence, check it out also if you can get some leads.

I'm pretty sure they use the train station from OUATITW for one of the battle scenes (where Raquel takes her shower), but don't quote me on that. The sandy hills are pretty recognizable from FAFDM among other Spaghettis.

I go with the 7\10 rating. More in pulpish style than dramatic one, it never tries to be deep, only action and characterization only limited to the Brown-Welch relationship (and very little of it). It can 't be more than pure fun but that is what usually is absent from many AW of the era. Some great stunts (some by Reynolds himself) and bare small boobs courtesy of Soledad Miranda. Jim Brown is wooden, Raquel Welch too but who cares?, Reynolds is surprisingly brilliant (probably because he has to compare with Brown) and Lamas is perfect as a villain as his german (with perfect british accent) advisor. Goldsmith's OST didn't impress me. In the dvd I bought there's a 7' footage from the super8 print but didn't understand what was there for as I couldn't spot great differences with the scenes of the official release.
