The poncho is the original (maybe it lost some color through the years)

Just finished the activities in Burgos, on the occasion of the 50 years since the end of the movie was shooted there. The dream of all was that Clint Eastwood would be present but... that not happened. The film was screened in Sad Hill, on the sunset and before that... the audience saw the following:

 ;D Jaaaaaaa...!
I have not contacted with anybody of that Association. Sometimes I´ve been in touch with Diego Montero, a guy who belong to the Collective Paleontology of Salas de los Infantes and one the most enthusiastic about everything related to the film and its location in the area.
 8) I have the friki idea of anybody who sponsor a tomb maybe get a  tomb with his name in the graveyard

The cultural association of Sad Hill, established in Salas de los Infantes - Burgos, Spain; basically by a group of admirers of  the film “The good, the bad and the ugly”, has begun some time ago to work in  recover the famous cemetery, that was built for the film in the Valley of Mirandilla, municipality of Santo Domingo de Silos.
It is expected to look like it was exactly 50 years after the date they are going to celebrate that anniversary (2016). Among the curiosities there is an initiative to sponsor a tomb (for those who live far away) to finance spending that requires removal of grasses, trees and improving the graves and the possible placement of crosses and tombstones.
In the picture you can see how is going the recovery of the  central stony circle. It is also a call to enthusiasts to get together to work this weekend.

To more information. visit:

After a year the showdown was recreated again. In this case, to commemorate the 50 year since the movie was filmed. The Almeriacine group (friends of mine) made these videos.
The event was carried out the last weekend

Well, I think the event was promoted by Manuel Hernandez (the owner of the Hostal Alba) I´m not sure but he always is worring to do this kind of thing.
Most of the people traveled from Almería City and, of course, the people of the Los Albaricoques (Aguas Calientes) that always are willing to cooperation. The music and the voices (dialogs ) were taken from the  BSO (spanish dubbed) Some of the actors are stuntmen from western town of there

The circle is not an "arena"  and is the same place where the movie was filmed. This place is known in Spain, Mexico and South America as "The Era". A place where people from rural villages used to do "the trilla" (in spanish) I mean "threshing"
What is this? Well, is a process to separate the wheat from the hay. When the wheat is harvested is deposited in the ground inside the Era and then,  the farmer makes that some horses run above of this.  Finally the hay is thrown into the air with a fork and as the wheat is heavier... the wind separates him from the hay  8)

Hi, I know I enter here from time to time but I would like to report the following new.

 This Sunday 13th July was commemorated the 25 anniversary Sergio Leone death in Almería, specially in the town of Aguas Calientes (Los Albaricoques). And for this event was recreated the final showdown The video was taken for my friends of Almeriacine group (association where I belong too)

A Fistful of Dollars / Re: The first time you saw this film
« on: January 20, 2012, 05:30:50 PM »
I saw it for first time  when I was around 8 years old (in 1968 I think) in a old cinema of my neigborhood. Of course they objected to let me pass (I was supposed to be 21 years old) Anyway I was able to see (through a gap in the door) the scene when the bad guys shoot to the mule, and Clint ends hanging from the tavern sign

 :) Hi gringos....!

It has been a long time since I posted something and…  here I am again to clear the doubt. As Tom Betts said upper, the actor who played Miguel Rojo is the spanish Antonio Prieto Puerto. The other Antonio Prieto, who recently passed away the last year, was the chilean singer and actor… who would not have any relation with the movie. Reading the book of Carlos Aguilar (spanish writer): "Leone" on page 132 appear: "... as the imposing Antonio Prieto, with his frog eyes and amazing face devoured by smallpox..."  To exit of doubts I questioned directly to Carlos Aguilar and told me it was a contemporary with the same name  confirming  this matter.

Antonio Prieto Puerto
