Continuing our search for film locations for “Death Rides a Horse”. Ryan rides into Holly Spring and walks into a saloon and asks for Burt Cavanaugh. He’s given the cold shoulder by the barman and two henchmen block his way on the staircase leading upstairs to Cavanaughs room. Ryan makes short work of the pair and enters Burt’s room. Cavanaugh tries to pull a derringer from his desk but Ryan slams the drawer on his hand and takes the gun away from him. Now Ryan controls the situation and demands Cavanaugh pay him $15,000 one thousand for every year he was in prison.
This scene uses the same saloon and rooms used later in “Sabata”. The set is a full scale saloon at Elios Studios outside of Rome.
