50th Anniversary of “Roy Colt and Winchester Jack”

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the premier of “Roy Colt and Winchester Jack”. Directed by Mario Bava and starring Brett Halsey, Charles Southwood and Marilu Tolo. The story is about Roy Colt and Winchester Jack who fail miserably at being outlaws, Roy resolves to dissolve the partnership and earn an honest living in Carson City. When he arrives at Carson City he’s greeted with a hero’s welcome along with a badge and a gun. The new sheriff gets that old familiar outlaws feeling when the nervous citizens entrust him with a copy of a stolen treasure map that is said to lead to a treasure of buried gold. Unfortunately for Roy, the mysterious Reverend, a dynamite-toting Russian outlaw; his old partner Winchester Jack; a Jewish desperado named Berenstein; and Mahila, a wanted Indian seductress, are also in pursuit of the gold. By the time Roy reaches the Indian burial ground where the gold is said to be buried, it's anyone's guess as to who will get the gold first. With everyone eliminated except Roy and Jack they start a fight over who’s gold it is while Mahila manages to escape with the treasure.

Rumor has it that the script was thrown away by Bava after the second day of filming and they wrote each days shooting as they went along.

Who Are Those Gals? Clara Colosimo

Clara Colosimo was born on May 23, 1922 in Conegliano, Italy. She studied opera as a mezzo soprano then went into theater reciting Beckett. She moved to Rome in the early 1960s to pursue a career as a theater actress. She made her film debut in Giulio Petroni’s “Tepepa” (aka “Blood and Guns”) in 1968. She would alternate between films and theater the rest of her career.

She was much appreciated by the most important filmmakers of 1960s Italian comedy, (as Pietro Germi who used her alongside Dustin Hoffman and Stefania Sandrelli in “Alfredo Alfredo”), her film career continued with the revival of such comedy films as “Satyricon” (1968) by Federico Fellini, and “Fantozzi subisce ancora” (1983) and in her unforgettable part of the concierge meddling in “La patata bollente” (1979) and Artemio's mother in “Il ragazzo di campagna” both with Renato Pozzetto. She also personified dramatic roles in “Novecento” (1976) by Bernardo Bertolucci, and distinguished herself in the character harpist, (one of the main roles) in the film “Prova d'orchestra” (1980) by Federico Fellini. Her last film was in “Atto di dolore” (1991) by Pasquale Squitieri. Clara suffered a heart attack in her home in Rome and died on June 15, 1994. She appeared in 65 films between 1968 and 1991 appearing in five Euro-westerns from the previously mentioned “Tepepa” (aka “Blood and Guns”) in 1968 to “White Fang and the Kid” in 1977.

Spaghetti Western Location ~ Elios Studios, Rome, Italy

Originally called Helios this studio became the center for the making of Spaghetti westerns from the mid-1960s until the end of the genre. It was situated northeast of Rome and had soundstages and a complete western town set.

The town set was easily to pick out when seen in westerns. One side of town had a large building usually used as a warehouse on one end of town and on the other a church with a huge bell tower that was easily detectable from any other church.

Today nothing remains of the set and the studio itself is now owed by Titanus

SW Location Cinecitta Studios, Rome, Italy

Cinecittà was constructed in 1936–37 on the site of Cines, an important early studio that had burned down, and it was an important part of the Fascist government’s attempt to develop a domestic film industry equal to that of Hollywood. Located just southeast of the center of Rome, Cinecittà was the focus of the Italian movie industry during World War II, when bombings almost completely destroyed its facilities. After the war the Allies used Cinecittà as a prisoner-of-war camp and then as a displaced-person camp. That Cinecittà was closed after the war was a factor in the emergence of Italian Neorealism, which favored films shot on location.

The studios were eventually rebuilt, and by 1950 Cinecittà was once again in full production. For the next 20 years Cinecittà set cinema trends through the work of such leading directors as Michelangelo Antonioni, Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Roberto Rossellini, and particularly Federico Fellini, who shot most of his films there. Attracted by production subsidies and low labour costs, American studios shot such films like “Roman Holiday” (1953), “Ben-Hur” (1959), and “Cleopatra” (1963) there, earning Cinecittà the nickname of “Hollywood on the Tiber.” The growth of television and the decline in the quality of Cinecittà’s films diminished its prestige, however, starting in the 1970s.
The western set is identifiable by a two story building in the center of town usually used as a hotel or saloon. The studio also built a Mexican village that was also used quite often and is dominated by a large two story hacienda at the end of the street with several arched businees along both sides of the main street.

Cinecitta was privatized in 1997 and expanded to control two other studios in Italy, Dino Studios near Rome and Umbria Studios near Terni, and to have partial control of CLA Studios in Ouarzazate, Morocco. Although in the early 21st century the number of projects of production was only one-third of that in Cinecittà’s 1960s heyday, the studio still played a major role in Italy’s film industry and continued to attract foreign productions.

He also wants to discover the reasons behind the mysterious incident. Disguised as a Mexican he goes to Appaloosa, and stays in the saloon of dishonest Trixie, where he soon realizes that the person responsible for the shipment of fake gold and fake robberies is Samuel Spencer, an official of the General Mines, who is an accomplice of Mantas. Meanwhile, attracted by gold, another gunslinger named Sabbath arrives in town. In a failed attempt to kill Sartana, Spencer decides to get rid of the two famous gunslingers by pitting them against each other while he attempts to escape unhindered to Mexico. But his plan fails and surprised by Mantas, he is killed while the bandit is in turn eliminated by Sartana. Sabbath recovers the gold accumulated by Spencer, rejecting an attempt made by Trixie to turn it over to her and the local miners.
