y los ángeles de la muerte del western europeo
Kindle version Book
By Pablo Mérida
The first book I did on the world of film was dedicated to Sergio Leone. Therefore it was difficult to hide my love for the European western, either named, spaghetti western, sausage western sausage, western all'italiana, in Europe, to the Mediterranean or Spanish. In those blessed years I caught on that there was a genuine local cinema theater, and it became for me one of the greatest pleasures that one could enjoy, A European western combined with a peplum, a swashbuckler movie, an adventure film or a Tarzan movie. What glorious afternoons! Just as you went in the auditorium after you had eaten dinner and saw a film which was followed by a Zorro, or Django. What more could you ask of life! Well, as you can see in these lines, I was a little overcome by this type of production and, even today, although it has rained a lot since then, I remember them with fondness.
Hence, for some time, I had thought about the idea of writing something about the European Western. Believe it or not, the subject is vast and complex. Not in a general approach, I wanted to make my first approach on a specific topic. My first idea was to gather the greatest heroes of the genre. For there already had appeared Django, Sartana and Sabata, along with other gunmen as Ringo, Trinidad or the insurmountable "Man with No Name" played by Clint Eastwood in the dollar trilogy of Sergio Leone. But the project was still too ambitious. So I wanted to give this kind of righteous avenger a divine halo baptized with the name "angel of death" and that the figure was the main reason behind Django. Django was born of the angels of death of the European western. The project allowed me to reconnect with a series of characters who had fascinated me for years. And I was amused to see that what progressed in parallel was the production of a new Django, this time made by Quentin Tarantino Django Unchained.
Django and the angels of death of the European western is not intended to claim anything. It is just a memory, a tribute to a type of film that will go down in history, but today it still surprises for its impudence, for creativity and for its constant challenges imposed by the Hollywood conventions.
