We continue our search for locations for “The Gatling Gun”. Chris spends the afternoon seducing Belle Boyd and then rides away from her home and stops in a grove of trees. He goes to the base of a particular tree and begins to look for something at its base. Suddenly he is caught in a booby-trap and ends up hanging by his hands five feet off the ground. Mr. Bishop and several of his men approach and Bishop asks him if he is looking for this, holding up a money belt. He asks Chris where the meeting with Tarpas and the Confederates is taking place but Chris refuses to tell him. After telling Bishop he has spent an enjoyable afternoon with Belle he is beaten by Bishop’s henchmen until he is able free himself and escape and rides off on his horse.
According to Robert Woods this scene was filmed at a mansion near Barcelona, Spain. This same location was used in George Montgomery’s “The Outlaw of Red River” as the location of General Camargo's hacienda.
