Daniela Giordano traveled a short stretch of that long road called Italian Cinema (1967-1980). and left her mark. Less Formosa (but more beautiful and good) than other colleagues who rampaged over the period, does not like to undress, but does it with ironic elegance when the script calls for it. She plays in many comedy films, sometimes better than the titles imposed by production or distribution. Queen of the Euro-western, she distinguishes herself in other genres such as adventure, Gallo and horror. She works with prestigious and valid directors, who did not always enhance her undoubted capacity and capabilities. But her presence lit up the screen, as they say. She left the cinema still young when she saw the ugly direction Italian wass taking. She traveled other routes. She loves how she loved the cinema. Just as you will love this book of memories and insights.

Spaghetti Western Locations ~ Cañon Negro


Cañon Negro is located about ten meters northeast of Tabernas, to the left of the road that leads to Senes, just beyond the solar power plant. It is characterized by hills with a sharp profile. At the mouth of this canyon was filmed the first sequence of “Duck You Sucker” (1971) when Juan Miranda (Rod Steiger) stops the stagecoach: in the background you can see the curvilinear profile of the northern slope of the Sierra Alhamilla. The inner part of Cañon Negro was used in “El Verdugo” (1969); “El Condor” (1970); “Chato’s Land” (1971); “Red Sun” (1971); “Doc” (1971); “Those Dirty Dogs” (1973). Cañon Negro is particularly seen in “Chino” (1973), for which the set designer Mario Garbuglia built the ranch of the main character Chino (Charles Bronson). Subsequently, Cañon Negro appears in “The White, the Yellow, the Black” (1974); “The Four of the Apocalypse” (1975); “A Dollar for the Dead” (1998). A set for the Warren Oates ranch was built by Mario Garbuglia for “China 9, Liberty 37” (1978) and another for the film “The Shoe of Manitu” (2001). Nothing remains of these sets today.
