The budget didn’t allow much room for luxury and Eastwood even brought along his own stunt double – Bill Thompkins from Rawhide. It is Thompkins as Joe who gallops through the desert in the nighttime riding sequences; he also plays the Baxter gunman in the green shirt during the hostage exchange. San Miguel was fi lmed in ‘Golden City’, a western set at Hojo De Manzanares (north of Madrid) and the adobe village of Los Albaricoques in Almeria, southern Spain. The interiors of Rojo’s residence and its whitewashed walled courtyard were Casa Da Campo, a Madrid museum.

Eastwood maintained that this was the best scene he’d ever played. But Time wrote of his performance that he ‘looks grizzled, stares into the sun and sneers, but anything more demanding seems beyond his grasp’. Throughout their journey Eastwood rides a horse, while Sara wobbles along behind on a mule (a horse-donkey hybrid) and later a burro (a thoroughbred donkey); MacLaine had trouble staying on the mule, so the burro was written into the story. The fi lm’s running joke is that Hogan is as stubborn as her mule (she christens him ‘Mr Mule’) and thinks he’s in control, while Sara craftily always gets her own way.

The scene where Blondy and Tuco first meet was lensed at rocky Manzanares El Real, further north. Most of the Civil War scenes were shot between Madrid and Burgos, in Castilla-León. The entrenched battle between the blue and the grey raged at Covarrubias, on the River Arlanza. Betterville prison camp was built at Carazo and Sad Hill’s amphitheatre of the dead, ringed with concentric circles of tombs, was also south of the Arlanza, at Contreras. All three locations were less than 20 kilometres apart, with the prison camp location actually just over the mesa behind Angel Eyes during the final showdown.
