We continue our search for locations for “The Gatling Gun”. After Captain Chris Tanner’s arrival at Fort Algete in poor condition and the announcement his companions are dead the scene switches to a basement in Las Cruces, New Mexico where Richard Gatlin demonstrates his new invention: a gun that can shoot 300 rounds a minute. After the demonstration the group retires to Gatlin’s study where he is told the three ambassadors of the Federal Government will be returning to Washington DC to report back to the president the personal approval of the weapon and to support purchasing a number of the guns for the Union forces.
The scene was filmed on a sound stage at Elos Studios in Rome.
