We continue our search for locations for “The Gatling Gun”. After Doc Curtis tells Tanner to meet him White Valley in about an hour the scene shifts to Tarpas riding to a hacienda to tell Ryckert the news that the ransom for Pinkerton has arrived in Las Cruces. Ryckert and Tarpas devise a plan to obtain a million dollars for the exchange of Pinkerton and another million dollars from the Confederates for Gatlin’s gun. Tarpas suggests a deserted mission and Rio Rojo for the two exchanges. Ryskert agrees and they discuss their plans for the exchanges.
The short scene of Tarpas riding to Rykert’s hacienda was filmed in the rocks of La Pedreza in Manzanares el Real. The hacienda is located at Casa de Campo in Madrid and is the same location used for the Rojo hacienda in Fistful of Dollars.
