For many critics, Sergio Leone's films were part of the problem.Leone's Dollars Trilogy (1964–1966) was not the beginning of the "Spaghetti Western" cycle in Italy, but for Americans Leone's films represented the true beginning of the Italian invasion of an American genre.In Italy, the American West as a dramatic setting for spectacles goes back at least as far as Giacomo Puccini's 1910 opera La fanciulla del West; it is sometimes considered to be the first Spaghetti Western.The first Italian Western movie was La Vampira Indiana (1913) – a combination of Western and vampire film.His treachery is exposed and he is severely beaten, but in the end he defeats the remaining gang.The interaction in this story between cunning and irony (the tricks, deceits, unexpected actions and sarcasms of the hero) on the one hand, and pathos (terror and brutality against defenseless people and against the hero after his double play has been revealed) on the other, was aspired to and sometimes attained by the imitations that soon flooded the cinemas.
The majority of the films were international co-productions between Italy and Spain, and sometimes France, Germany, Portugal, Greece, Israel, Yugoslavia, or the United States.
Of the Western-related European films before 1964, the one attracting most attention is probably Luis Trenker’s Der Kaiser von Kalifornien (1936), about John Sutter.
During and after the Second World War there were scattered European uses of Western settings, mostly for comedy or musical comedy.
The first American-British western filmed in Spain was The Sheriff of Fractured Jaw (1958), directed by Raoul Walsh.
It was followed in 1961 by Savage Guns, a British-Spanish western, again filmed in Spain.
