Curro Jiménez is a very popular Spanish TV series from the 1970s, and it is about the Spanish "bandoleros" (highwaymen) in the mountains of Andalusia (Southern Spain). Hint: guess why I adopted the nick "Bandolero".

A movie based on the series (Avisa a Curro Jimenez) was made in 1978.

While not a Spaguetti Western, many of the episodes actually look and feel like Spaghetti Westerns. Many of the actors/directors also have particiapted in Spaghetti Westerns.

Sancho Gracia (Curro Jimenez): Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot!; Per il gusto di uccidere; In a Colt's Shadow: Guns of the Magnificent Seven; 800 bullets.

José Sancho (El Estudiante): Massacre at Fort Grant; Two Thousand Dollars for Coyote;

Alvaro De Luna (El Algarrobo): Seven Guns from Texas; Minnesota Clay; Navajo Joe;  Hellbenders; A Professional Gun; Compañeros; etc.

Eduardo García (El Gitano): For a Few Dollars More.

Rafael Romero Marchent (director): Seven Guns from Texas; Hour of Death; etc.

Has anyone in the forum seen the movie or any of the episodes from the series? I don't know if the series has been dubbed or has subtitles in languages other than Spanish, though.
