Spaghetti Western Locations
In the “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”, Tuco and The Man With No Name join as partners in crime when they cook up a scheme where the wanted bandit is turned in for the reward on his head. When Tuco is sentenced to hang the first time his hanging takes place at Elios Studios outside of Rome. The second time the trick is pulled it takes place at Mini Hollywood near Almeria Spain. The bank of El Paso used in “For a Few Dollars More' was camouflaged by set designer Carlo Simi and today the spot where the hanging tree was located is covered with a building marked Fire Department.
