A Western shot in Almeria.........


Well how about a film about the Spanish Revolution shot in the Sierras?


Just finnished watching the film "For Whom The Bell Tolls" (1943) on TCM, Gary Cooper, Ingrid Bergman.

Its interesting to see it but I can definitely say that Almeria looks more like the American West than the Sierras look like Spain. lol.

Its not a bad film and you will be reminded of some of the Zapata Westerns.

As far as I know, that movie was shot in Central America (possibly in Mexico), and in my opinion the actors do not resemble Spaniards at all. Nevertheless, it is a good movie.

Thank you for the correction, Cigar Joe. I wasn't sure of the exact location, but I knew it was not shot in Almeria. For starters, the scenery is completely different, and movies started being shot in Almeria during the early 60s. Besides, the Spanish Civil War ended in 1939, and it is highly unlikely that General Franco would have agreed to the shooting of a film that depicted as "the good guys" the very ones who fought (and lost) against his troops.
