We continue our search for locations for “The Gatling Gun”. After explaining his mission to Doc Curtis, Captain Tanner rides out to the abandoned and boarded up Gatlin house. He manages to gain access to the place and looks around in the dark. Finding the hidden passage that leaves to the basement where the machine gun was kept he finds it gone but before he can do anything else two armed men arrive. One crawls inside through a window and when he follows Chris’s tracks to the basement sees a figure in the dark and opens fire. It’s a only Tanner’s jacket and hat made to look like him. Tanner shoots back through one of the holes in the board used to exhibit the Gatlin Gun’s power. The gunman falls dead and Chris leaves through the window where he is shot at by the second gunman. Tanner falls and plays dead while the gunman mounts and rides off.
The location of the Gatlin house is La Pedriza (Manzaneras El Real). The house used is the one used as the ‘Widow’s Ranch’ seen in “The Big Gundown’ and several other Euro-westerns.
