Spaghetti Western Locations for “A Bullet for the General”.
We continue our search for filming location for “A Bullet for the General”. The remaining soldiers dead and dying are shot again to make sure they are dead. The horses and mules are taken off the train. Bill climbs back on board and retrieves his satchel. He spots a horse and begins to follow the revolutionaries into the hills. ‘El Chuncho’ asks the others in the group if they approve of the boy Gringo joining their band and all but one says yes.
The scene was shot on the Guadix railway line in the Hernan Valley.
