I love Italian Westerns! I might go so far as to say that “Spaghetti Westerns” are my most favorite film genre (or subgenre, as some prefer to say).
Many of my favorite examples of this type of film are not among the titles available to select here on MUBI.
Among those are the following:
ONE AFTER THE OTHER [Uno Dopo L’Altro]——
FIVE GIANTS FROM TEXAS——
RAMON THE MEXICAN——
15 SCAFFOLDS FOR A KILLER (aka THE DIRTY FIFTEEN)——
THE FURY OF JOHNNY KID——
MANOS TORPES (aka CLUMSY HANDS, aka WHEN SATAN GRIPS A COLT)——
GUNFIGHT AT HIGH NOON——
A HOLE IN THE FOREHEAD——
And so many more!
There are a few Westerns listed here that some would not consider Spaghetti Westerns.
These include American-Spanish-Italian co-productions and British films all shot in Spain.
For me, if the movie was filmed in Spain and had European money behind it, then it deserves a spot on this list.
