We begin a new location search for “Bullets Don’t Argue” (1964) directed by Mario Caiano and starring American actor Rod Cameron, German actor Horst Frank, Spanish actor Ángel Aranda and Danish singer/actress Vivi Bach. The film ties in directly with Sergio Leone’s “Fistful of Dollars” because Sergio was only able to get his film made by teaming up with the producers and most of the crew and actors used in ‘Bullets’. If not for ‘Bullets’ most likely ‘Fistful’ would never have seen the light of day.
The opening credits are shown over a horseman Billy Clanton/Clayton riding across the countryside and into a town.
The opening scene was filmed in Lucainena de las Torres, Almeria, Andalucia, Spain.
The mountainside village of Lucainena lies at approximately 550m above sea level, situated just outside the perimeter of the Sierra Alhamilla natural park in a little world all of its own.
AL-3107 mountain route from Lucainena to Nijar in Almeria The village is located along the AL-102 and can be approached from either the main AP-7 motorway, or the N-340a Sorbas to Tabernas road. While the first option offers the most rewarding views, since it takes a winding route up the side of the mountains, a head for heights is certainly necessary, access from the Sorbas to Tabernas bypass provides a scenic yet much less dramatic way to reach the village
