Anecdotes
The success of ‘For a few dollars more’ was colossal. Leone’s style was perfectly defined, and it was imitated by numerous film makers. The European industry started profusely producing westerns, and most of those pictures emulated, with different degrees of success, Sergio Leone’s western standards: the anti-hero, violence, music by Morricone, the very first close-ups of the characters’ eyes… Spaghetti western had just been established and Almería became known as Europe’s Hollywood.
Leone was so astounded by the versatility and plasticity of the Almería landscape that he located most of his second western in the land of the Indalo (Almería’s symbol).
