Spaghetti Western Trivia ~ Trading places in “Massacre at the Grande Canyon”


James Mitchum was hired to star in the 1963 Italian film “Massacre at the Grand Canyon” also in the cast was Giacomi Rossi Stuart and George Ardisson. During early filming Mitchum seemed on edge and lost. The producers approached George Ardisson and asked if he would take the lead and they would make Jim the protagonist. Ardisson had developed a friendship with Mitchum and turned the producers down as he didn’t want to hurt Jim’s feelings and felt it was his film.
