Context of the Spanish Western

Somewhat interesting video about what was going in Spain at the time that the Marchent brothers, Leon Klimovsky, and others were making westerns. The Marchent family was close to Franco.

The Spanish westerns are something of a enigma to me. The typical story involves a doomed main character whose innocent actions lead to disastrous results. In these movies, violence corrupts the protagonist, making it necessary for society to purge them. This fascinating and strange story has to have something do with the fallout of the Spanish Civil War and life in Franco’s Spain. Does anyone know anything about this? If so, please leave a comment below!

Castellari discussing his movies and his upcoming western film!

For more info: “The film, to be called Badlanders, will also include a small role for Franco Nero, whose 1966 portrayal of the brooding protagonist in Sergio Corbucci’s Spaghetti Western classic Django was the inspiration for Tarantino’s blockbuster Django Unchained.”
