The Essential European Western Library
Over time I hope to post many of the books essential in both researching and enjoying the European Western genre.
Seul au monde dans le western italiaen
By Gian Lhassa in collaboration with Michel Lequeux
Publisher Grand Angle ASBL
Volume 1: Une poignee de themes 1983 (156 pages)
Volume 2: Des homes seuls – 1987 (238 pages)
Volume 3: Dictionaire du western italien – 1983 (192 pages)
Volume 3 which I is pictured, is the prize and the one you should try and get your hands on. The other books are also excellent but Volume 3 is the book which you can use for research purposes as it lists the film titles in Italian and also lists directors, screenwriters, actors and composers. The other 2 volumes get into retrospection of the films and the personnel.

Three years ago, these three books were still avalaible from the publisher, Grand Angle, a movie art house from Belgium. Unfortunately, their site is inactive right now.ReplyDelete
Copies are sometime sold on ebay.fr -- at a stiff price, if I remember well. And volumes 1 and 2 are invaluable if you read French.
