Little Known Spaghetti Western Actors ~ Enrique Arévalo

 [These daily posts will cover little known actors or people that have appeared in more recent films and TV series. Various degrees of information that I was able to find will be given and anything that you can add would be appreciated.]

Enrique Arévalo is a Spanish extra who was born in Bilbao, Vizcaya, Spain in 1944. He was a Basque-Navarrese soldier from Artillery Barracks 63, based in Salas de los Infantes, part of the contingent of almost 2,000 soldiers donated by the Army for the film production company for “The Good, the Bad and the Ufly”. He appeared as an extra in the scenes of the Mission in the monastery of San Pedro de Arlanza and in the taking of the Langston bridge.

Arévalo remembered the experience stating, that nocturnal escapades were not uncommon even though there was military surveillance in the camp. "One night I escaped and went to a bar in the area where I got into a fight and had to run back to the camp with the Guardia Civil following on my heels. When the Guardia Civil arrived at the barracks they were told that they had gone over the list and there was no one missing, they had no choice but to leave."
