Cine del Oeste en la Comunidad de Madrid [Book]


With this book, the authors, Javier Ramos and Ángel Caldito, show us the important role that Madrid played in the development of the cinematographic subgenre known as spaghetti-western. Generally associated with Almeria, few people know that more than 200 Westerns were filmed, totally or partially, in the Community of Madrid. In fact, Madrid can be considered the place where the boom of this popular film genre broke out thanks to the filming, in Hoyo de Manzanares, of the film For a handful of dollars (Sergio Leone, 1964). La Pedriza, Colmenar Viejo, Hoyo de Manzanares, Ciempozuelos, Titulcia, Algete ... were usual scenarios where cowboys, Indians, soldiers or Mexican bandits rode. In Madrid, there were three large towns in the West, several temporary villages, four forts and dozens of ranches and cabins. Today, there are hardly any remains of these places and almost nobody remembers that they existed. The aim of the book is to remember these places and that genre fans can visit them. A small tribute is also paid to all locals, artists, technicians and companies whose names appear in the credit titles of many spaghetti-western. The book includes about 400 color photographs and a prologue by José Luis Galicia, a film decorator and one of the builders of the western town of Hoyo de Manzanares.
