Together For The First Time – James Stewart – John Wayne – in the masterpiece of four-time Academy Award winner John Ford.
After a successful first film, both Eastwood and Charles Bronson were approached to make the sequel. Bronson passed, citing that the sequel’s script was like the first film. Instead, Lee Van Cleef accepted the role. The film was shot in Almería, Spain, with interiors done at Rome’s Cinecittà Studios.
This 1965 Technicolor Western film was roughly based on the 1888 true story of the five Marlow Brothers. Filming was due to begin in 1964, but had to be delayed until 1965 after John Wayne was diagnosed with lung cancer. After Wayne’s surgery to remove a cancerous lung and two ribs, the star insisted on doing his own stunts, and nearly contracted pneumonia after being dragged into a river.
