We continue our search for film locations for “Texas Adios” (aka The Avenger). We now see Burt, escorted by Miguel the Alcalde and his henchmen, arriving at the Rio Grande river and the border between Mexico and the United States. Suddenly the men are attacked by Hernandez, the lawyer from town and a band of freedom fighters. All but Miguel and Burt are killed. Miguel is saved because he once was one of them but Cisco Delgado had killed his wife and child and taken the fight out of him. Burt also refuses to join the band as he has only one thing on his mind, rescuing Jim. Hernandez and his men ride away and Burt takes Miguel’s gun and rides back towards Delgado’s hacienda.
This location is at Aldea del Fresno. This same river area has been seen in many Euro-westerns including “Fistful of Dollars”, “Hellbenders”, “Up the MacGregors”, “Minnesota Clay”, “The Spikes Gang” and “Bandidos” among many others.
