We continue our search for locations for “Bad Man’s River”

 When they reach the ghost town the gang goes in search of the thief but they are in for a surprise as Canales and his men are already there and with the wind and dust blowing they pursue King and his men. Bomba goes in a saloon and is followed by two of Canales’ men. From behind the bar he places a bottle of whiskey and two glasses on top which draws the two men over and they look behind the bar but Bomba has managed to crawl through the shattered bar and shoots one of his pursuers and places his derby on the others head marches him to the door where he’s promptly shot and killed by two other Canales’ henchmen. When the two men enter the bar to examine the body King shoots and kills them. Now Pace is pursued but he disposes of the man. In a comical shootout most of Canales men are eliminated. During the shooting the false Montero is shot and killed by one of Canales’ men. It’s discovered he does not have the million dollars on him.

Holing up in a shack with a wounded Angel the King gang are surrounded by Canales and his gang. Canales brings a Gatling gun into play and levels the shack. The King and the gang managed to move under the floorboards and when Canales’ gang moves into recover the bodies they are shot down. Canales surrenders. Canales’ proposes they join forces, and he wants King to turn over Alicia and he will find out where the money is.

This scene was filmed in Colemenar Viejo, Spain. The same town seen in Clint and Tuco’s shootout with Angel Eyes’ gang in “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”.
