Spaghetti Western Trivia – ‘Bonanza’ film released in Italy


The European market especially in Italy was very hungry for western film entertainment and so American producers combined episodes to US television westerns and released them as full length films to Italian distributors for release in local film theaters.

Below we see ab example of this as this is two “Bonanza” TV episodes combined to form a full-length film and titled “Piu veloci del vento” (Faster Than the Wind). This co-stars Rod Cameron and was directed by American veteran William Whitney.
