Once Upon a Time in Almeria: The Legacy of Hollywood in Spain
This book will appeal to readers interested in documentary photography, but will also appeal to those interested in Hollywood film history, in Spain and landscapes, and in the politics of popular culture. The images are engaging on their own, showing vast, barren landscapes and ghostly remains of old Western towns in the Spanish desert. But the accompanying essay, map, and index of images also reveals the complex half-century history behind these images. The locations and their stories bring the viewer back to a golden age of Hollywood productions involving Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Peter O' Toole, Clint Eastwood, Raquel Welch, Claudia Cardinale, John Lennon, and others. Through film, the landscapes of Almeria have also helped to shape popular perceptions of the American West, Arabia, and the Ancient Roman Empire. Some popular films shot in Almeria include: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) - Sergio Leone Once Upon A Time in the West (1968) - Sergio Leone Lawrence of Arabia (1962) - David Lean Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) - Steven Spielberg
