Spaghetti Western Trivia ~ The Churches of Polopos

In the Spaghetti Western “A Man Called Sledge” (1970) we see a ruined church at the end of the film where the remainder of the gang have taken the gold and Ria and are hiding out from Sledge. Eventually they are all eliminated. This church was fake and built at the edge of town on a small hill. When western fans go to the town they continue to seek out what is left of the church. When they ask the local townspeople for directions to the church they are greatly disappointed when told to go to the center of town and see the real village church. A small whitewashed building surrounded by trees and kept in impeccable condition by the villagers.
