I was wondering if anybody has an idea how much spaghettiwesterns there are made in general?

Over 400 were made betwen the 1960s and 1970s, so total maybe around 600.


in these parts a man's life can depend on a mere scrap of information.

Really?  In Italy only?  Wow...  

Not to imagine how many Macaroni Westerns were made... and Paella Westerns...  I even heard of Camembert Westerns before, really.   :D

Your estimate seems about right.  I recently watched The Spaghetti West, and it put the number somewhere between 600 and 700, which seems incredibly high, but there you have it.

  Remember though that a decent number of those 600 or 700 are not very good.  Knock-off's of knock-off's and so on.

  I haven't seen a whole lot, maybe 50, but I'd guess that's there about 100 to 150 quality spaghetti westerns.  Or at least that's what I've heard other people say.  Somewhere in that range.

It'll be great if there are between 100-150 quality SW's.My collection is 80 and i'm now having to really scour for some decent westerns haven't got nearly all the well known titles!

I'm just starting getting systematical on SW and as I think (sorry, Banjo: but let's not start a quarrel on it again, please) that only Leone's  are good, the other ones are just as bad (or good). which means that there are more than 150 SW to pick up. About the number being between 600 and 700 I wonder whether in the number are included spoofs (there were made lots of them), porn SW (at least a pair were made, can you believe it?), musical etc. I remember also one made all with children playing adult roles.

James, would you recomend that doco. I saw a preview on the website and it looked rather good.

Yes, definitely.  Depending on how versed you are in the subgenre, it may or may not tell you anything new, but it's the kind of thing I wish I could simply whip out and show to someone who doesn't understand exactly what the Italo-Western is all about.

It seems to me the thing to remember is that quality is a purely subjective measure.  Some folks may feel just as strongly about the shoddiest, most offensive Italo-Western ever made as others do about The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.  It's all a matter of taste.

Talking about SW documentaries, 20 years ago italian public television produced a documentary in 6 installments (or were they 4?) directed by Duccio Tessari. I remember LVC interviewed while taming a horse saying that Leone had "saved" his career, that he could beat as to fastness with the gun all of the italian performers. Unfortunately it was never aired again.
