Spaghetti Western Locations

We begin our trek searching for film locations for “Texas Addio” (aka “The Avenger”). The film begins with a gunfight between two gunmen who run around all over town showing off their acrobatic skills as they dive, roll, jump off roof and balconies. Finally one of the gunmen is shot and as the other moves in for the kill both of his guns are shot out of his hands by the local lawman. He orders the man out of town and then walks over to the wounded man and drops a cloth in the dirt street for him to wrap around his arm and as he staggers away the town returns to normal.

This opening scene with a rousing main theme by Carlo Savina playing behind the opening credits was filmed at Cinecitta Studios', American western set in Rome.
