cool. you gotta be on your toes to catch spaghetti similarities . just as in the sweetwater ranch poping up in chato's land which i avoided but will now check out. i was watching ACE HIGH and low and behold another shocker. it was timmy's ghost from OUATITW,  or a facsimile thereof. shades of suspention of disbelief  Shocked  the lil whipersnapper pops up like a redheaded target.  made me feel good to know timmy was alive and well.....and earning a living as an extra on the ACE HIGH set, which also brags screaming babys 10, no 100 times worse than the baby jesus.
incessant infant sniveling so bad i had trpuble making out wallach's lines during one scene. i'm just glad as hell timmy' ok and still with us.  Grin

I love CHATO'S LAND. No classic but a fine humdinger. Great beer n' popcorn double bill if you pair it with RED SUN. Yup, a good night's roamin' thru the wild west!

Its quite disturbing in Ace High, ..they look just the same. Almost like they were put into storage and wheeled and lined up for the scene. Not that I indorse putting extras in tea crates for easy warehouse storage.  Grin

Thanks for that Belkin. I will have to watch this again now that you mentioned the appearance of Sweetwater. I remember seeing  it when BBC1 used to show quite a few  westerns in their Mon 9.25pm movie slot and only knew it was made in Spain.

Michael Winner is hardly a favorite director of mine. It's Bronson that really makes the Bronson/Winner movies watchable. A lot of people like Death Wish, myself included. But for my money, Chato's Land and The Mechanic are Winner's best films.

Using the same location and actor isn't enough to make Chato's Land worthy of comparison to OUATITW. That said, it's still good. Bronson has about 3 lines in the whole movie. When he's not talking, he's killing. And showing off his physique in a sporty loin cloth. That's why he's Bronson. As far as 60's/70's action stars, he's the most capable of kicking your ass. Speaking of old ass kickers, Jack Palance seems a little underused in Chato's Land. I was really hoping to see him and Bronson kick the tar out of each other. Talk about a couple of craggy faced old men.

About that location in OUATITW/Chato's Land... wasn't that house built from the leftover lumber of an Orson Welles film?

You Brits are lucky to have such good tv stations. Television in the states is awful. They just show Pretty Woman for three nights in a row. Or Anaconda. It seems like they play a lot of westerns on AMC, or BBC2 as it were.
