Spaghetti Western Locations
The arch used in the flashback scene is located on the north end of Monument Valley on a side road off the main highway Route 163 to Mexican Hat. Only the base remains and you have to look hard to see it on a rise overlooking the valley. You can drive to the arch on a dirt road that goes by two houses and ends in a circle at the arch. The base of the arch was made of bricks, sandstone and cement with the remaining parts made of wood and Styrofoam.
The above comparison shots were taken from Hervé Attia blog and his excellent short film on You Tube showing the different locations now and then.
