I've never seen any solid discussions of westerns made in countries, not primarily known for making them. Maybe somebody is aware of "Curry"  or "Borscht" westerns. Feel free to include them here. I will start the ball rolling with French westerns. My exposure to them is primarily thru the films of Brigitte Bardot: Viva Maria(65), The Legend of Frenchie King(71), Les Petroleuses(71) with Claudia Cardinale(film was reviewed as The Wild Bunch as remade by Russ Meyer) and Shalako(68) made in UK, but still has Bardot in it. Do you have any info on Joe Hamman (the French John Wayne) or pioneer Georges Willeman? Let me know. Give me your lists of the ones you've seen, and any comments.

CEMETERY WITHOUT CROSSES(1968) http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=1590.0

A very stylistic French Western that has one of the most surrealistic towns I've seen in a Western.

I thought Frenchie King & Les Petroluses were one & the same.

  Could be. I saw Frenchie King a looooong time ago. Don't really remember Cardinale being in it, it was practically an all-female cast . She might have got lost in the shuffle. I think Petroleuses has Michael J. Pollard in the cast, most definitely would have remembered him! Cemetery Without Crosses sounds like a great title, what did you think of the film?

Czech western parody Lemonade Joe. I think not other westerns were made in our country, except for a short puppet animation film called Arie prerie, which is sort of a first version of Lemonade Joe and which I haven't seen.

Boardwalk_angel wrote a review of Lemonade Joe on this board, but I cannot find it now.

Then there are the Winnetou films from Germany.

You already mentioned it in this thread.


This is one of my favorite euro westerns, though.

   Thanks, a bit hazy on that movie, saw it on TV, may have cut Pollard scenes out. Afro

As I wrote, I haven't seen it, so I cannot tell.


Thank you!
